For the past week our entire family has been sick. It started with our two youngest children and slowly spread. Luckily my husband and I have been able to minimize catching their colds with some simple and helpful tips.
As soon as our three year old got sick my husband and I started cleaning things like doorknobs, light switches and chairs that we all touch a lot.
We also upped our hand washing and reminded our kiddos about the importance of washing your hands.
Another thing we have for every room in the house is a simple vaporizer. You can find some pretty affordable ones at any retailer and is really great when you are sick. It’s one of the best ways to combat congestion and colds. With small children in our house we make sure each of our children’s bedrooms has one running.
When you are sick or you think you are getting sick it is essential that you eat healthy and whole foods. This time of year I stock up on organic orange juice so our whole family is getting plenty of extra vitamin C. Making sure you eat whole and balanced meals with plenty of vegetables and good fats will keep you healthy and will also help to support your immunity.
We also stocked up on essential supplies. Things like tissues that won’t harm your nose and cough and fever medicine. Treats like Popsicles also help to calm feverish children.
This cold and flu season, make the care complete with Kleenex® brand, and together we’ll turn a seemingly small gesture into something bigger, to make everyone feel better.
What are some simple ways you find relief when you or your kiddos are sick?
