Fight the Flu

People have this notion that it’s cold and flu season during the Winter, because when we go out into the cold we put ourselves at risk.  Not so.  Germs don’t like the cold – that’s why a cold mist humidifier is WAY healthier than a warm mist one.  Winter is cold season, because WE are like the viruses that plague us.

We don’t like the cold.  We huddle together inside.  We are in close confines, bunched together, all Winter long.  Germs love this.  It’s warm inside.  We like it warm, and so do the viruses.

I have a bad cold, and it’s knocked me for a loop.  But I have to admit, I’m glad I’m sick now – because I’d rather be sick now than during Yule and Christmas.  This is why I  didn’t post yesterday.  I crashed pretty early.  LOL

So here’s my survival tip (and yes, I’m taking my own advice).  Knock out the virus by loading up on Echinacea and Vitamin C, stay hydrated, and get plenty of rest.
