Ok let’s get serious here.
There is a lot of bugs going around that seem to take hold and not let go.
It’s long, did I say that already?
Sigh…… I won’t mention the special weather system that the weather networks are using to describe this winter but I can’t wait to call it OVER AND DONE. Every year we do a relatively great job of keeping everyone in the family healthy through the cold and flu season. The girls and I got off relatively easy. We had a couple of sniffles and sick days but nothing too serious. I do believe that our daily multivitamin helped us out.
Hubby did get a bad cold early this winter and it held on in the form of a bad cough for months. This is the first time I have ever seen hubby suffer so much from a cold. I think he may be a new believer in the multivitamin.
Cold and Flu 101:
Aches and Pains
Prevention – follow these simple tips and you might be able to avoid what’s going around:
Sleep – Everyone needs a good night’s sleep; proper shut-eye allows your body to rest and keeps your immune system strong
Multivitamin – A multivitamin can certainly help maintain good health and it’s important to have one that you’ll enjoy and remember to take. Vitafusion™ MultiVites™ adult gummy vitamins (yes, gummies for big kids!) contain the essential vitamins you need. For the kids, try L’il Critters™ GummyVites™. Kids love the flavour so much that if you forget to give them their vitamins, they’ll remind you!
Exercise – With a busy routine maintaining an exercise schedule can feel like a chore, but regular exercise is an easy way to keep your body strong, helping your immune system fight off illnesses such as a cold or flu
Wash your hands – Your best protection from the common cold and flu is frequent hand washing
