Sneezing, sniffles and a sore throat are all tell-tale signs a cold is on the way. The holiday season is here, so there is no worse time to be bed ridden and miserable. With all of the running around and the hustle and bustle of the holidays, we come more into contact with germs, our bodies and immune systems get worn down and in comes those dreadful common cold and flu symptoms. Tis the Sneezin’ Season: How to Avoid Getting Sick This Winter.
1. Wash Your Hands: Wash your hands often, for at least 40 seconds. In public restrooms, dry your hands with a paper towel, then use it to turn off the faucet and open the door.
2. Contain It: Cough or sneeze into your elbow or into a tissue. Wash or disinfect your hands after blowing your nose. Wash your clothes to get rid of germs, including coats, hats and gloves. Too often we put those things away after the season and they never get washes before the new season begins.
3. Be Extra Healthy: Drink water regularly to stay hydrated. Exercise regularly or at the very least take regular walks stretching breaks. Eat well by incorporating super foods, Vitamin C and garlic.
4. Take It Easy: Get 7 to 8 hours of sleep as stress and lack of sleep that weaken your immune system. Stay home if you’re not feeling well. Start taking a remedy with zinc gluconate like Cold-EEZE at the very signs of a cold.
Cold-EEZE has been a product that has always worked for me. The QuickMelt melt in your mouth and have a nice orange taste. It won’t prevent your cold but it will help to shorten it.
