Well friends, it is that time of the year, cold and flu season. So the question is, how will you be surviving the cold season this year? Many thanks to Member’s Mark 3-ply facial tissues for sponsoring this post all about how we plan on surviving the cold and flu season this year.
Kids are little petri dishes. Germs follow them and this time of the year it seems like EVERYONE is sick. There is almost no way to escape it…you will get sick thanks to those little ones. As we enter this season I am always looking for tips and tricks to surviving it without completely losing my mind. One essential that we have to have on hand is tissues. I don’t know about your kids but my kids go through A LOT of tissues when they have a cold and frankly I do not want to be without tissues when we aren’t feeling well.
I do some bulk shopping but not a lot due to our lack of storage in our home BUT paper products like facial tissues are the exception. I always head to Sam’s Club for these necessities and love that we can buy such high quality items in bulk that we know we will use.
Surviving The Cold Season In Style
I am loving the box designs from Member’s Mark 3-ply facial tissues. They are creative, bright and fun and will go with any decor in every room of your home. If you are like me, during this cold and flu season you place a box of tissue in every single room of the house. No one wants to run to the bathroom for a tissue after that giant sneeze.
One treat that my kids have enjoyed when they are not feeling well and need tissues is letting them choose their box of tissue to put in their bathroom and bedroom. When you catch the bug it is the little things like picking out your own box of tissue that can really make you feel a little better.
Tips For Surviving Cold and Flu Season
Wash Your Hands!
During this season it is important to wash your hands as much as you can. No matter where you work, shop or go to school you will come into contact with someone who is contagious. Soap and water are your friends through this season, did you know you should sing the “Happy Birthday” song twice while washing your hands to make sure you are properly cleaning your hands? Easy thing to remember!
Keep your body hydrated and clean. You can flush out toxins by drinking plenty of liquids like water, green tea, soup, fruit juices and hot liquids.
Rinse Your Nose
As much as I hate doing these rinses, they really do help. Clean out your nostrils with a nasal irrigator. This will help clear out the viral particles which contribute towards that nauseating and irritating feeling of cold and flu.
Stop Touching Your Face
Seriously…stop! Your eyes, ears, nose and mouth are the most common areas through which germs enter the body. So even if you are washing your hands you could still infect yourself by messing with your face.
Fresh clean air does everyone good. On those warmer fall and winter days you can also open your windows to make sure you are airing out your home.
Stock Up On Quality Tissues
Okay, even though you took all of those precautions, chances are you or someone in your family will come down with a cold or the flu this season. Being prepared for that moment is key. By heading to Sam’s Club and picking up the new Member’s Mark 3-ply facial tissues you and your family will be prepared for those cold and flu symptoms with some extra protection from germs.
Take Time To Snuggle
When kids are feeling sick they love some snuggles but let’s be real, adults do too! Take time, both adults and kids, to rest and get better. This is a busy time of the year and when you are sick you can often over do it which leads to being sick longer. Let your body rest and get healthy.
