It’s that time of the year again! After the holiday parties, you are back to work. You feel a little tickle in your throat. You feel a bit sluggish and achy. You are just not yourself. These symptoms may mean you are coming down with a cold or the flu. What do you do now? You could just roll over and let the flu take over. But, for most of us, our world does not wait for us to get over the flu, so finding something to fight back against these symptoms is our only option.
One way to fight off the symptoms of a cold or flu is by keeping warm. When outside, make sure you are wearing warm clothing and accessories when facing the cold and blistering winter weather. When indoors, wear comfy clothing, curl up under a warm blanket, and eat a cup or a bowl of chicken soup. Not only does it make you feel more comfortable and relaxed, the broth can also help to relieve your congestion and allows for you to breathe easier.
Another way to fight off symptoms of getting sick is to get proper rest. This solution may seem to be a hard one to do with our hectic lives, but getting enough sleep, especially if you are feeling sick, is vitally important to the way your body fights off a cold and the flu. The less your body is in motion, the more energy your body will have to fight off whatever is ailing you.
What else can you use to try and halt or lessen your cold or flu symptoms? You can try using Gravol™ Multi-symptom™. It is all-in-one pain, fever and nausea reliever, and contains naturally-sourced ginger and willow bark, so it will help to relieve your symptoms without the drowsy effects that other cold and flu medications can leave you feeling.
So, if you are feeling a little under the weather, do not take it as a joke. You should try to take care of yourself. Stay warm and cozy, drink some chicken soup, and, if you can, take a multi-symptom tablet to help you combat whatever may be ailing and to get back on your feet again!
