It’s flu season, and it is worse than ever this year. Don’t let the fear of getting sick, keep you from traveling on a plane (aka a germ tube.)
The last flight I was on had four people throwing up on it. I know. Gross. But I have yet to catch what has been going around. That is because flight attendants have a few tricks up their sleeve.
Germs are bad everywhere, shopping malls, grocery stores, school. So I actually do all three of these things daily, even when I’m not flying.
- Emergen-C is your friend. It is so easy to take, just mix it in a cup of water and voila! I take this stuff at least once a day, sometimes twice if I am starting to feel sick, or I know I am going to be around a lot of germs that day. It can be found in almost any convenience store or grocery store. They even sell it in the airport!
- Zinc enhances your immune system, and is actually a natural cold remedy. You can buy it in different forms such as a pill or a dissolving tablet. I buy all of my vitamins from Care/of.The packaging makes it easy to carry around in your purse or suitcase. There is also a cute little message on each pack, which has helped me to take them everyday because I’m always curious as to what it says.If you are interested in Care/of, visit the website! There is a noninvasive test you can take that tells you what vitamins you need to take everyday, and then at the end of the test you can add or delete anything you’re not interested in.The company also has amazing customer service, which is a plus.
- Sanitize everything. I use these Purell wipes, because they come in a small package that I can throw in my suitcase. WIPE DOWN YOUR SEAT AND TRAY TABLE. I know, you don’t want to look like the crazy lady, and hold everyone up during boarding. But it is worth it. The seats and tables RARELY get sanitized. so imagine… The last time I wiped down my tray table on a plane, everyone sitting around me was asking for a wipe. Who’s the crazy one now?I also use these wipes in bathrooms, hotel rooms, and grocery stores. I recommend just buying a pack and keeping it in your purse, if you don’t use them a lot, trust me, there will come a time you wish you had one.
