Six Ways to Prepare for Seasonal Wellness

November 06, 2018

While this time of year is filled with the excitement of preparing for the holidays, it may also mean gearing up for cold and flu season. Colder months can bring a lieu of illnesses and germs. From sneezes and coughs to sore throats and fevers, watch for warning signs and stay on top of wellness. To support a health immune system, consider stocking up on over-the-counter vitamins and minerals to stay ahead on wellness. Rexall® and DG Health® brands offer customers both value and quality products. Consider a few items to prepare for cold and flu season:

Tissues may keep the spread of germs at bay. It can be important to have them handy when dealing with a persistent cough, sneeze or runny nose. Save on tissues with a four pack of DG Home® Facial Tissues. Leave a cube at your desk, in your home or in your car. Consider donating a box of tissues to your child’s school to help them prepare for the season as well.


Hand Sanitizer and Antibacterial Wipes

Germs and bacteria can run rampant during the colder months. You may kill germs and bacteria with antibacterial wipes and hand sanitizer. These handy tools can also be convenient for on the go clean ups. These items may also make for an affordable donation to your child’s school!


Antibacterial Soap

To help prevent the spread of germs, wash hands with soap and warm water. Count up to 30 seconds with children as a way to wash germs and help them learn numbers. An antibacterial soap can help to eliminate germs.


Cough Drops or Sore Throat Spray

DG Health® Natural Herbal Cough Drops or DG Health® Sore Throat Spray may help to soothe sore throats. Keep a handful in your car, office and home for ease. DG Health® Vitamin C Drops can also be an option to consider as they provide an excellent source of Vitamin C in each drop!



Staying hydrated can help to prevent dehydration, which can weaken your immune system, and may help loosen up any congestion! Make staying hydrated easy by keeping water bottles nearby. With affordable multipack water cases, like this Clover Valley® 32 Count, staying hydrated while on the go is simple and convenient.


Keep your immune system strong and be sure to rest! While rest may come free, the busy holiday months may not give much time. Whether you snuggle up and watch a movie or get to bed earlier, it can be important to give your body a rest, especially if it is healing from illness.
