Millions hit the road during the holiday season and with that brings hordes of germs tagging along for the ride. With all of the running around and the hustle and bustle of the holidays, our bodies and immune systems get worn down and in comes those dreadful common cold and flu symptoms.
As we are all determined to visit friends and family or escape the cold weather, coming into contact with germs while traveling is inevitable. Dr. Jennifer Collins, MD provides some key tips to keep you happy and healthy this holiday travel season.
Hand sanitizer- Pack travel-sized hand sanitizer and keep the cold and flu at bay, as trains, buses and planes are breeding grounds for germs.
Rest- We tend to get run down during the holidays due to shopping and travel. Lack of sleep can run down your immune system and no one wants to be sick during the holidays!
Immunity booster- Boost your immune system before and during holiday travel with products such as Cold-EEZE Cold Remedy Plus Natural Immune Support (+ Natural Energy).
Stay active- Even though you’re traveling, there are plenty of ways to exercise, as it helps build your immune system. Pack your workout clothes and sneakers and sweat it out!
Reading material- Magazines on trains and planes are living with germs. If possible, pack your own reading material to keep away those pesky germs.
