This cold and flu season has been rough. With 6 kids in school, we’ve had all kinds of fun germs coming home. So how can you support your health this winter? We have some tips and tricks that can help keep your family healthy.
This time of year it can be so hard to stay healthy. I feel like there’s always someone in my house who is sick during the winter months.
I don’t know about you, but I definitely don’t have time to get sick.
We finally have everyone healthy and I’m going to do everything that I can to make sure we stay that way.
These four products are my favorites during the winter months because they make my life so much easier. I recommend that every mom have them in her home during the winter months. We stock up on these when we go to Walmart and it makes me feel so much better knowing we are prepared. I love that Walmart makes it so easy to grab the things we need.
Align Dualbiotic Gummies
I firmly believe that everyone should be taking a good probiotic. You’ve heard it said that gut health can affect everything else in your body. I know I feel so much better when I’m being consistent with taking a probiotic.
Align Dualbiotic Gummies include both prebiotics and probiotics so they help nourish the good bacteria in your body. The best thing about them is they taste great and are low in sugar (with less than 1g of sugar per gummy) so I don’t have a problem remembering to take them.
These are so easy to add into your morning routine and there are very few things that you can do that will make a bigger difference in your day.
I keep these on my kitchen counter next to my car keys so I always remember to take them in the morning.
Don’t think you need Metamucil? Think again. Regularity is so important to gut health and most people are not as regular as they think they are.
Metamucil is the only leading brand that is made with naturally sourced psyllium fiber, which is great for promoting digestive health and keeping you regular. It works by trapping and removing waste so you’ll feel lighter all day.
I love that this comes in a sugar-free version made with stevia that tastes great and is so easy to take. If you need something on the go, the Cinnamon Thins are absolutely delicious and they are great for keeping in your car or purse.
I feel like I get sick less often when my digestive system is healthy so I’m always looking for ways to improve it.
As an added bonus, the natural psyllium fiber in Metamucil is a great way to curb your appetite. I know I don’t eat the way I know I should during the winter months so this is a great way to help me stay on track. Just one serving of the Metamucil Premium Blend before meals and I’m not nearly as hungry.
Dial Complete Antibacterial Foaming Hand Wash
Hand washing is the best way to prevent winter bugs. I make my kids wash their hands as soon as they walk in the door from school. When we are consistent with hand washing, I notice a HUGE decrease in the number of times we get sick. I’m constantly reminding my kids to wash their hands while they are at school (and crossing my fingers that they will do it well), but when they are at home we are on top of things.
I keep Dial Complete Antibacterial Foaming Hand Wash at every sink because it kills 99.99% of germs. I like those odds.
It’s gentle on skin so you don’t have to worry about bothering sensitive skin either.
My kids think I’m crazy during the winter months but I’m a big fan of hand washing.
Vicks VapoCool Drops
If the inevitable happens and you do come down with a cold, Vicks VapoCool Drops are amazing. They vaporize your worse sore throat pain and give you some seriously cooking relief. I find that I like these better than even taking cough medicine because they provide instant relief.
I keep our medicine cabinet well stocked and Vicks VapoCool Drops have a place front and center.
