Vicks helps you beat the winter blues- Win a SDM GC Canada

Just as we thought winter was over many of us got hit with a last bang of snow!

If you were lucky enough to avoid the yucky cold, wet weather, chances are you were not easily avoiding the cold & flu that also comes along with winter. I do not know why this time of year it seems it is so hard to shake it. For us, Little One brought a cold into the house a few months back, lasted a couple of days. It then hit everyone in the house, some harder than others. I had it for three weeks straight and my other half still is feeling it. Now one of the teens who had it seems to have the sniffles again. It is a vicious circle and never ends.

I can not wait till it warms up and I can open up all of my windows to air out the house. Being sick is exhausting and taking care of the family when they are sick is even worse.

winter cold and flu

Winter in Canada can be especially depressing, it seems to drag on forever and it can be hard to see the light at the end of the winter tunnel, especially if you’re sick! Make sure you’re keeping these guidelines for winter surviving winter in mind:

Know the signs: Not many people realize they’re most contagious in the first 24 hours of symptoms. If you’re experiencing two or more of these symptoms, do your best to stay at home and enjoy some Netflix!

  1. Cough or Sore Throat
  2. Runny Nose
  3. Headache or Body Aches
  4. Chills / Fatigue

Avoid work germs: Be wary of sinks, office kitchen tools, and especially doorknobs. Keep some antibacterial gel at your desk and make sure you wash your hands frequently.

Take more “You Time”:  Saying no to stress can keep your immune system strong, make sure you get plenty of rest and sleep, not just when you’re sick.

Double up on pillows: Place a pillow on your mattress to raise the upper body from the waist up. This allows for blood flow away from your head and will reduce the inflammation of your air passage. It’s also a great method of reducing body aches.

DayQuil and NyQuilSweat it out: Steam and humidity will help drain sinuses and relieve your stuffiness. You don’t necessarily have to sit in a sauna or steam room, a hot shower has the exact same effect. (Helpful tip: put your towel or bathrobe in the dryer so you don’t feel chilled when you get out)

“Tea, please”: Drinking herbal teas like chamomile, mint of passionflower can help you relax while also helping fluids into your system.

Treat all your symptoms simultaneously: Look for a medication that can treat the toughest symptoms while also helping you rest. DayQuil COMPLETE and NyQuil COMPLETEprovide all in one relief for your toughest cold and flu symptoms so you can start seizing the rest of your day, and get the rest you so desperately need at night.
