No one likes being sick. Growing up, I was fortunate to rarely get sick. I even got chicken pox over a long weekend! As a result, I never once had to miss a day of school.
As time progressed and I became a mother, I have not been as fortunate. It seems that I am quite susceptible to all of the germs that children pick up and pass on.
Being a mom, I don’t have time to be sick, though! There is simply too much going on for me to miss. Plus, no matter how hard my husband tries to pick up and clean up, the house becomes a complete mess.
I do try my best to take measures to prevent those awful sick germs from entering my home and infecting any of us. Here are a few of the easy ways that we work to stay healthy.
- Wash our hands– Washing hands frequently is important to keeping germs away. Wash before eating, after using the restroom, after sneezing or coughing, and as needed throughout the day. If soap and water is not available, an anti-bacterial wipe is a good alternative.
- Eat well– I try to provide my family with lots of fruits, vegetables, and the full amount of all their nutritional needs. This helps to keep our bodies healthy and fight off infections.
- Sleep– A tired body has a much more difficult time fighting germs. Getting the recommended amount of sleep each night helps the body to recover and fight against harmful intruders.
Of course, no matter how hard we try to stay well, chances are that we will get sick at some point. That’s where Vicks DayQuil and Vicks NyQuil comes in.
