The holiday season is upon us! And it is definitely not an ideal time to be feeling sick! I think the worst time to feel bad is around the holidays.

I’m sharing #Ricola in my life as part of a Ricola sponsored series for Socialstars™

Being sick during the holidays is the worst! Here's how to survive it!

There’s so much to do and enjoy, I don’t want to miss out! So, today I’m sharing some of my favorite ways to feel better IF you start to feel sick and how to deal with the dreaded cold symptoms you may get this holiday season!

How to Survive A Cold During the Holidays

Hydrate:  It’s important to drink lots of water, juice or broth when you have a cold. The fluids helps loosen congestion and prevents dehydration.

Rest:  The more you can rest, the better your body can heal and feel better.

Pain Relief:  Taking ibuprofen or tylenol as directed can help with the aches and pains of being sick. I always use them sparingly!

Moisture:  Adding moisture to the air can help with a stuffy nose, dry throat and also loosen congestion. Be sure to run a humidifier both during the day and at night.

Soothe Sore Throats and Coughs:  Use a good throat drop to help ease symptoms of a sore throat and cough. Here’s one of my favorites!
