Five Steps to Keeping Winter Sickness At Bay

Thank you Chloraseptic® for sponsoring this post. Use Chloraseptic® throat spray and lozenges to stay ahead of cold & flu season!

You see these beautiful palm trees below? Don't they make you feel warm, refreshed and peaceful? Well, don't let them fool you. Here in Southern California the sky may be clear and the leaves still green but it gets chilly chilly chilly! So even though its beautiful outside we have to make sure to keep ourselves protected from getting sick.

I work in marketing and spend my entire days speaking to people over the phone and in person so it's important that people understand what I say without my voice cutting out so here are a few things that help me keep from getting a cold as well as what I use when it sneaks in!

1. Cover Up! I always carry a scarf in my purse, even when it's 100 degrees out, because my office is frigid. During the winter months I wear one that is thicker and always keeps my neck warm and protected from the wind. I also always make sure that my chest is covered by a sweater or by being creative with a long scarf.

2. Use Hand Sanitizer People say it's not good to overuse this because it can kill all the bacteria in your hands, etc etc, but I mainly try not to use too much of it because I don't like how it dries of my hands. When I find myself touching too many things that my coworkers or employees touch

3. Keep Hands Clean I know I can't wash my hands after every single thing that I touch but aside from washing them after using the restroom I also do so when I get into the office, before and after I eat and when I get home. I touch a lot of things on my way to/from work and I don't want to end up catching something if I have to rub my eyes or nose.  So wash your hands often with soap and water because it's the best way to prevent the spread of the common cold. Which leads me to the next thing on my list which is...

4. Leave the Face Alone I love wearing makeup and having my smooth look and feel smooth but I try to keep my hands away. As well as the hands of others. We can't wash our hands after touching every single thing so it's important to keep the germy hands away. I've gotten into the habit of only touching my face without washing my hands first

5. Be Prepared When I get sick it always starts with me waking up with a sore throat that only gets worse throughout the day. I like to make sure that I always have what I need in order to feel better be it a pain reliever, sleep aids or something to sooth my throat.  I like using lozenges when I'm on the go because my purse can't really handle more items but at home I've always used Chloraseptic spray. I like that it's never left a weird taste in my mouth and always started working super fast. With cold and the flu season comes runny noses and coughs that make throats raw and sore. Chloraseptic is the # 1 sore throat relief brand that provides fast-acting relief for sore throats and mouth pain to help you get through your day.

I'm a big crybaby and I tend to be overly dramatic when I get sick. Having a sore throat is not fun and it's something I try to take care of ASAP. Along with the sprays, Chloraseptic lozenges have a soothing liquid center that relieves pain and cools nasal passages. They're soothing, refreshing, and help take the pain away, leaving me focused and able to concentrate on the things I need to do since I am always on the go.

Aside from wearing thick scarves during the colder months I pretty much do all of the above year round because I always get at least one or two summer colds and sore throat episodes from being in super air conditioned places and traveling back and forth between LA and NYC. So make sure you've got everything you need to find relief during flu season and make sure Chloraseptic® is in your medicine cabinet so you are prepared to get the relief you need, when you need it.
