It’s that time of year when we are super busy running around and trying to prepare for the holiday season. With shopping, cooking, school performances, church activities, traveling to see friends and family and more, the last thing you want to do is come down with a cold or the flu. But, chances are that at least one person in your family will be under the weather at some point during the coming months.
To help prepare we have some helpful tips from www.Kleenex.com:
1. 96% of school nurses agree that when a child comes to school sick, other children tend to catch his or her virus.
2. The Center for Disease Control recommends facial tissues as one of the key strategies to minimize cold and flu viruses.
3. Every year, the U.S. alone reports more than one billion colds and 35 – 50 million flu cases.
4. Boost your immune system with Vitamin D – enjoying a little sunshine can help.
5. To help reduce your fever, put wet towels around your shoulders instead of your forehead.
6. Avoid using humidifiers when you’re sick – they can actually spread the flu germs.
7. Not all liquids hydrate equally – stick to water, herbal tea and fruit juice when you’re sick.
8. All colds are contagious, regardless of mucus color.

Since you don’t feel like doing anything strenuous when you’re sick, and that definitely includes going to the stores while they are packed with holiday shoppers, it’s a good idea to be stocked up on cold and flu survival supplies at home. You will want to have everything you need, like medications, cough drops, your favorite tea and Kleenex right there on hand. When you pick up your Kleenex, check out and stock up on Kleenex brand’s new thicker and more absorbent everyday tissue, which provides exceptional hand protection by helping to keep hands clean and dry.
