There is nothing worse than being on the road and getting sick. It’s happened to me too many times! No matter what kind of weather I travel to, I always seem to get a little cold (sniffles, coughs, sneezes); probably because I catch everyone else's germs at the airport and in the planes. Especially during the holiday season, if you didn't get your flu shot (which can sometimes even still give you the flu!) you are more than likely to catch a cold from someone who is boarding on your plane, even sitting next to you and sharing in your “space” their nasty germs…well that’s how I think about it anyways!
No matter what, before I get on the road or fly anywhere, I put together a care package/kit for myself that includes all the necessities to help me feel better if my system gets weak. In my list of items I always carry are:
- Heating pad
- Vick's Vapor Rub
- and lastly several packs of Kleenex tissues
I learned to pack all these items and to also take care of my travel ills thanks to my mom. She always made sure to pack in our luggage a pack of Kleenex tissues to make sure that we always had tissue to keep our noses clean. Plus the unexpected gift of a Kleenex Care Pack and the softness of Kleenex brand facial tissue can make all the difference when it comes to showing someone how much you care (even if it’s to yourself!).
During cold and flu season, everyone could use a bit of comfort, and a small gesture can make a big difference. That is why I am giving away a package of Kleenex Share Pack that will soothe you during those days that you aren't feeling well. Just follow the simple instructions from the rafflecopter below and a winner will be selected by December 10th, 2012.
