We are starting to get into cold and flu season here in New England and my family is preparing. In fact, we make sure that we are prepared all year long because just like you can get colds in the winter, they can happen in the summer as well. Being prepared and knowing some tips to get you through cold and flu season will get you back on your feet in no time.
This post is sponsored by Scotties, however, all my opinions are my own. You can find my full disclosures HERE.
Tips for cold and flu season
Every time that I am sick, all I want to do is stay and bed and sleep. When you are sick, your body needs more rest and making sure you get that is so important. So make sure that you rest up even if that means hanging out in bed with some hot tea and a movie or book.
Fluids, fluids, fluids
Make sure that you are drinking those fluids. Water and hot tea are my go to when I am down and out with a cold but anything that is going to hydrate you will work too (no, I don’t mean coffee sadly).
There is nothing worse than having the wrong tissues on hand when you need them the most. We have boxes of tissues in just about every room and the brand that we trust to keep our noses clean and soft is Scotties. These tissues are so soft and gentle, protecting your skin with each use.
With three different types you can get; everyday comfort, soothing aloe triple soft, and triple soft. So whether you need softness with added moisture as with the soothing aloe triple soft or softness and strength as with the triple soft, Scotties has you covered. To learn more about all Scotties as to offer check out them out HERE.
The boxes have beautiful prints and patterns which blend right into your home decor. They are super easy to find at your local Hannaford grocery store so while you are out grabbing groceries make sure to grab a box or two to have on hand.
Grab those vitamins that help combat colds such as Vitamin C, zinc, and Elderberry. Make sure that you check with your doctor about what vitamins may be appropriate for you before starting anything new.
Wash those Hands
With so many children running around my home who attend school and daycare, washing hands is an important part of staying healthy. It is especially important to wash before and after eating, touching your face or blowing your nose with a soft tissue from Scotties. Use soap and warm water and wash for at least 20 seconds.
