A Few Tips to Kick That Cold In the Butt This Cold and Flu Season that I have used to speed up my recovery time and eliminate some discomfort that colds can cause are ones that everyone has done at some point of their sickness if you haven’t and you are looking for ways to prepare you for that cold or flu arrives this post is for you.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.
- 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 seawater that is clinically proven to help get rid of nasal congestion so you can breathe better and concentrate on getting the rest you need.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
