5 essential products for cold and flu season

Cold and flu season is in full swing. Add in an ongoing global pandemic on top of that, and there’s an understandable desire to do everything you can to stay well. Getting sick often means missing work, struggling to sleep, and just feeling downright miserable.

You can’t completely avoid germs or illness, but there are some ways to mitigate risk. You probably know the basics: Eat right, wash your hands, and get plenty of rest.

However, having some tools around your house can help you not only survive but thrive during this time of year. Consider investing in these five game-changing products for cold and flu season.

Cold and flu season is prime time for coming down with something. These days, we’re also battling an ongoing pandemic. Illness isn’t completely avoidable. Sometimes, you just catch whatever it is that’s “going around.” That said, you’d probably like to avoid the misery that comes with getting sick if you can. A few basic tools can help you. Sanitizer boxes and soap dispensers keep hands and items like cell phones clean, and HEPA replacement filters make the air more breathable. Tea can soothe sniffles and build immune health. A good kettle and tea bags are great items to have on hand. Your doctor can advise on other ways to stay well and help you feel better if you get sick.
