Also, it never fails that during cold/flu season that inventory on cold medicine is always a little scare.  You don’t want to be without the one thing that’s going to provide you with relief!  The great thing about Vick’s is that you can get it for relief during the day or at night.  Check out the features of both below:

2.  Wash your hands!  This means after using the bathroom, coming in from the outside, and any other occasion in which you could possibly spread germs.  I’m a strong believer that hand washing is an essential combatant to fighting off illness and keeping it at bay.  Also, using hand sanitizer helps during times when soap water may not be available.  Personally, I always use hand sanitizer after pumping gas and after grocery shopping.  Another useful tip that I used to always practice when I worked outside the home was to wash my hands before getting in my car.  This was I didn’t transfer the germs from work into my car, and thus into my home.

3.  Be proactive with your health well before cold/flu season.  Insure you’re eating healthy, getting plenty of rest, and staying hydrated.  If just one of these three things are out of balance, your automatically setup yourself for illness.  You can best avoid getting sick by simply taking car of yourself.  Its important to keep up with what time of the year it is, and be aware of the potential hazards of the season, whether they be weather or illness-related.  If you start feeling a bit under the weather, during an unseasonable time, don’t brush it off.  Go ahead and take some NyQuil or DayQuil to help fend any type of sickness off.

I trust Vick’s during cold/flu season, because I personally know that it works.  I remember very clearly, a time in college in which I came down with the flu, took some Vick’s NyQuil and it knocked it right out.  Before I knew it, I was back to 100% in no time and able to go to and focus in all of my classes.  Plus, I didn’t miss out on any of the fun social activities that were going on during the opening week of our basketball season.  I know for a fact that if anyone in my family were to come down with the flu or even a cold, I’d reach for Vick’s first.  I know for a fact my mom did, because I remember her giving it to me as a child when I got sick.  So again, I’ve grown up with Vick’s, using it at different stages in my life and its never failed me.  Don’t fail yourself by getting sick, be smart, proactive, and healthy and beat cold/flu season with Vick’s!

  1. I’m an obsessive hand-washer! I may annoy my family with asking them if they washed their hands… may. 🙂
    Regardless of my hand-washing patrol measures my eldest picked up the flu germs early this winter 🙁
    XOXO

    1. Lol, me too! It’s one of the reasons that my hands are so dry. I’d rather have clean and dry hands than gross and moisturized hands though, lol. That sucks that your daughter still picked up the bug, but with going to school it’s hard to prevent. Such close quarters with other who don’t share the same sentiment for hygiene, that’s a formula for picking up things. At least she’s better now and back to 100%. Thanks goodness! 🙂
