4 Tips for Cold & Flu Season and Walmart Gift Card Giveaway! #ReliefIsHere

   By SheSpeaksTeam  Jan 09, 2015

As we head into cough, cold and flu season, we know how important it is to get relief from your most severe symptoms. We've put together a round up of tips to get you through all the runny noses and fevers that may come your way, and we're giving away a $100 Walmart gift card, so you can stock up on all the cold and flu season essentials!

4 Tips for Cold & Flu Season

1. Stock up early! It's not fun to go to the store when you're under the weather. Make a run to your local Walmart to pick up the essentials you want to have on hand just in case: hand sanitizer to prevent the spread of germs, lots of tissues (we like Puffs Plus Lotion for frequent nose blowing!), Vicks® DayQuil™ and NyQuil™ Severe to tackle your symptoms, and a few cans of your favorite chicken soup.

2. Take precautions to avoid illness. You can reduce your chances of getting sick by keeping up good habits like washing hands frequently with soap and warm water, staying hydrated, getting a good amount of rest, and eating healthy foods.

3. Get relief. Once a cough, cold or the flu sets in, start treating your symptoms. Vicks DayQuil and NyQuil Severe treat nasal and sinus congestion, headache, fever, and cough due to minor throat and bronchial irritation. With maximum symptom-fighting ingredients, you can start feeling better. You can even power through your to-do list with Vicks DayQuil Severe, which is a nondrowsy formula.

4. Sleep! Vicks NyQuil Severe can help you get the rest you need to feel better.

camping out on the sofa snuggled under a warm blanket, getting plenty of fluids. I always take Zicam cold remedy at the start of my cold, to reduce the duration of my cold. I take Dayquil for daytime and at night I take Nyquil to reduce symptoms so that I can sleep.

Chicken noodle soup. I swear by this when I have the flu or any type of bad cold. Not only does it taste good and easy to digest when you don't feel like eating but there is something in the chicken broth that is a natural antibody to help fight the flu bug.

Having someone take care of me (get me things, make me food, etc.) always makes me feel better
