Making sure you have the right products to help with your cold and flu are definitely key, but having a humidifier running, especially at night, can help make things a lot more comfortable. Humidifiers help to moisturize your nasal, throat, and lung passages, making it easier for air to pass through.

Eat Right and Exercise

Eating and exercising right year round can help keep your immune system boosted. Simple ways to do this is by eating a well-balanced meal and increasing your vitamin D intake. You can also try taking morning walks as long as the weather permits.

Stay Hydrated

Sometimes life gets the best of us, especially during the holiday season. A lot of us forget to stay hydrated and if you’re fighting a cold or the flu, there’s no better time to make sure you are keeping hydrated. Increasing fluids can help prevent dehydration caused by vomiting, diarrhea or excessive sweating due to high fever. It can also help to keep the nose and throat moist and loosen mucus.

Wash Your Hands

This may seem like a no brainer, but washing your hands will help in spreading the cold and flu. It can also help to prevent you from getting the cold and flu. I usually stock up on hand soap and sanitizers during this season.


Rest is probably the most important thing you can do if you get the cold or flu. You body needs all the rest it can get to get better. Take this much needed time to catch up on movies and TV shows. Drink your favorite tea and relax.
