5 Ways To Help Prevent The Flu

This blog post has been sponsored by Rainbow Light, but my opinions are my own. #ad #RainbowBoost


Ugh. Flu season. And cold season. I always dread getting sick. I simply don't have time for it. I don't like to see my kids sick. I especially don't like seeing my husband sick. He's not totally dramatic, but sometimes he can be, and I'm not exactly the nurturing type.


I have tips to help support your immune system this season, because again, who has time to be sick?



1. Pick up Rainbow Light multivitamins.  They have a bunch of different ones and they work well. I've been using them for a while, and so far, no sickness. *Knocks on wood*





I make sure to take one daily, and my kids do as well. Also, my husband. They help me have more energy, which is also a win.

I especially like the Gummy Vitamin C Slices. Not only do they taste good, but they seem to be working to help support our immune systems. Yup, they are gluten-free as well!






2. Wash Hands.  I mean, duh. But sometimes you do have to remind kids. My daughter will be all, "Yeah, I washed my hands," and I'll be like, "Then why do they smell like old cheese?" Make sure you wash for at least 20 seconds.



3. Grab some hand sanitizer.  My daughter has some clipped to her backpack. She says the kids at school are gross and will sneeze all over the place. But don't go nuts with the sanitizer. Sometimes germs are okay.





4. Drink plenty of water and eat healthy. I always have a glass of water beside me. My kids bring re-usable water bottles to school. My husband has his giant thermos of water. Eating healthy can be tricky, but I try to always have a salad with dinner. Also GARLIC has been known to help battle the flu, which is a win for me, because I put garlic in nearly everything I make.


5. Don't forget the multivitamin! Yeah, I said that above, but it IS important. We take ours in the morning so we don't forget.





My daughter likes that hers look like stars. She says they taste "sweet." I like that there are no artificial colors, flavors, or sweeteners. They are also gluten and soy-free.

  1. Flu season is always killer for me. I can't get the flu shot due to being immunocompromised so I definitely rely on the people around me trying to stay as healthy as possible. One top of a multivitamin, I found ArmaForce has been super helpful at keeping my immune system somewhat functioning.

  2. My son is always coughung and sneezing because he stays up too late and lowers his resistance so sleep is so important for health. I have to try those vitamins if they can help in the cold weather.

  3. Luckily we always start taking vitamins at this time of the year. Due to health I'm a bit more at risk than usual, but with careful hand washing etc it should go smoothly. Multivitamins for both men and women are a must in my eyes.

  8. I need to run to Walgreens and get our flu shots. I'm super late getting it this year. Preventing the flu is super important for me. I've got a lowered immune system due to medication to suppress my body from attacking itself. It stinks but its better than the alternative.
