The kids are home for a snow day, and the entire world looks like a snow globe. There’s a winter storm warning in effect, as well as a wind chill advisory. Right now our pellet stove is roaring in the living room and the kids are outside playing in the snow. We are so lucky to all four be healthy right now. There are so many colds and flus out there right now, and we’re taking extra precautions to stay healthy. Especially since we’re going to Florida! We have to take care of ourselves!
1 – Take care of yourself first. I know it sounds selfish, but it’s the opposite. I’m a much better family member when I’m well-rested, eating balanced meals, and getting some alone time too. When I’m sick or even getting sick, it tends to linger because I put the kids first always. I feel better and parent better when healthy or getting there.
2 – Outdoors time! We are lucky to have four acres at home so the kids can run around. Even in the snow, we get out there!
3 – Teach age-appropriate life skills – especially with good hygiene in the winter. Hand washing makes a big difference.
4 – We have a sense of humor! I mean, come on. This is hard work. Winter can be really tough for parents. We try to get by with our senses of humor, and a lot of patience. I don’t have a lot of that stuff, but I’m working on it.
5 – Take care of your family by having plenty of Kleenex at home.
Let’s face it – everyone needs a break once in awhile to stay or get healthy! That way you can care for others. Kleenex, like fellow parents, is a staple that keeps your home running well. It’s America’s softest tissue, and it’s there for you when you need that extra softness and care. Personally I pair it with a hot drink and an indulgent movie.
AND, it’s so easy to buy Kleenex at Walmart! You can buy it online! It’s so easy to check availability, choose same day shipping, and have a perfect and soft home delivery! Walmart is my place for convenience and savings.
There are many Kleenex benefits. It kills 99.9% of cold and flu viruses in the tissue and the active ingredients in the tissue’s middle layer disrupts the viruses’ protective coating to kill 99.9% of cold and flu viruses in tissue within 15 minutes. Kleenex also has a moisture activated blue dot layer with special anti viral formula to kill cold and flu viruses.
