I’ve been really trying to protect myself against cough and cold season because, as an educator, I am exposed to hundreds of germs on a daily basis. Almost every year, I get a cold around this time and I’m hoping that this year will be different. Luckily, I know exactly where to go when I need any products to tackle my cough and my cold head on. Walgreens has always stocked all of my favorite and trusted cough and cold medicines which always help in making being sick a little less miserable.
Since I have been working as a teacher for over thirteen years, I have managed to pick up a few tips here and there to help avoid catching a cold. Here are some of the things that I do in my own classroom to help the spread of germs:
- Wash your hands as often as possible and avoid touching your face in between washings.
- Keep tissues handy and encourage children and adults to use them to cover their mouth when they sneeze or cough.
- Use disinfectant wipes to clean surfaces that others frequently touch such as doorknobs and telephones.
- Carry a portable sanitizer in your purse or backpack and use it throughout the day.
- Spray counters and tabletops with a bleach and water solution that contains one tablespoon of bleach for every quart of water.
Unfortunately, sometimes these tips still will not prevent you from coming down with a cold, especially during this time of the year. When that happens, we rush over to our local Walgreens to stock up on our favorite cough and cold medicines because they are always fully stocked with all of the best brands.
Make sure you prepare for cough and cold season by heading to your local Walgreens. They have everything you need to help alleviate some of those symptoms like sneezing, sore throat, and coughing! Like them on Facebook to learn more about why they are the leading U.S. drugstore chain and to keep up with their latest promotions. You can find your local Walgreens “At the corner of happy and healthy.”
