Not Getting Sick Essentials





At the height of cold/flu season, here are a few of my best tips to prevent and treat a stuffy nose and sore throat.  Please bear in mind I am not a medical professional of any kind -- in fact, take all of this advice with a massive grain of salt.

WATER | I try to drink as much water as I can to stay hydrated, it'll soothe any dry nose or throat

ORGANIC 911 | this caffeine-free peppermint blend from David's Tea clears up your sinuses with the first inhale.

HONEY | Raw tastes infinitely better than anything that comes from a bear-shaped bottle.  Trust me.

VITAMIN C HALLS | I don't like the way Emergen-C tastes, and I forget to take supplements, but these taste like citrus Jolly Ranchers.  Sold.

HUMIDIFIER | This Japanese cypress humidifier is the perfect size for my bedroom, and it keeps morning sore throats away.

BONUS TIP: If your throat is sore, gargle salt water as shown in this video.

  1. Your humidifier is possibly the best one I've seen! I don't actually own one, but if I can find that one, I WANT IT :)

  2. I don't have a humidifier, but I need one. I'm always waking up with dry throats that make me think I'm getting sick.

  7. This all looks so…healthy.. :p Emergen-C is so good! I swear it actually has cured my sore throat that kept coming back. I always felt like Halls was a scam to make you sicker so you'd buy more :p
