A Few Solutions to Try This Cold and Flu Season

The dreaded cold and flu season is here. Every year, it’s the same story. Despite our best efforts, many of us will be forced to admit defeat and retreat to our couches with a healthy supply of tissues and hot liquids. 

While you might not be able to prevent yourself from getting sick in the first place, there are things you can do to feel better and get back on your feet sooner.  

1. Clear your nose

Having a blocked nose can be one of the worst parts about being sick. If cold medications still leave you feeling stuffed up, try pairing them with a saline spray like hydraSense®. hydraSense® is 100% naturally sourced sea water that is clinically proven to help get rid of nasal congestion so you can breathe better and concentrate on getting the rest you need.  

2. Clean up your act

This one is often overlooked! Keep anti-bacterial wipes and hand sanitizer within reach on sick days to avoid leaving germs on the surfaces in your home. The last thing you want to do is spread sickness to your friends and family members. You’ll feel better knowing you’re keeping your germs to yourself.

3. Take a hike

Did you know that light exercise can help to relieve congestion when you have a cold? Instead of staying cooped up inside, a brisk walk can help you feel restored. Just make sure you don’t overdo it.

4. Put your sore throat on ice

Sucking on ice chips can help temporarily relieve a sore or scratchy throat by numbing and calming some of the inflammation causing your pain.  Other ways to soothe a sore throat include gargling warm salt water or sipping on a warm herbal tea. 

5. Give yourself a (delicious!) boost

When you’re sick, making nutritious meals may feel like more of a chore. If your sick-day meals are more microwave friendly than health conscious, it’s also important to make sure you’re getting the nutrients you need with a multivitamin. If you’re not a fan of pills, try One A Day® Gummies. They taste great and help the body to metabolize carbohydrates, fats and proteins. For some added Vitamin C, pop Redoxon® into a ½ glass of cold water. You get 10 oranges worth of vitamin C in one tablet! 

Remember, the last thing you want to do when you’re sick is go to the store. So, stock up today to get ready for the winter. What is on your “must have” list for a sick day?
