The man cold. It’s real, people. Every time Jason has even the tiniest of signs of getting sick with the cold, I know my days will be drama-filled. He lays in misery, moaning and complaining, asking me to check his temperature for the 10th time. Too weak to move or even talk. He spends his day under a pile of blankets and mounds of tissues - desperately needing attention, and upset that I’m not taking his dire symptoms seriously.
As a matter of fact, recently my daughter was exposed to the man cold phenomenon. After witnessing one what can only be described as a "man-cold meltdown", she asked me. “Is daddy going to be OK?? Do we need to take him to the hospital??” I responded, “No, baby. He just has a cold… like us.”
Give this man a tool set, and he will build you a home. Show him a car, he will make it run. Throw him some numbers, and he will make you money, but the man cannot handle a cold! To create a drama-free home during cold season I turn to 3 simple and easy steps.
The moment I sense an itchy throat coming on I make sure my family stays hydrated with plenty of liquids and hot tea with lemon.
It’s sounds cliché, but there’s nothing that a good night’s rest can’t fix. Especially when you’re sick with the cold, you have to make sure you’re getting plenty of ZZZ’s!
Don’t wait until you’re bedridden to start taking medicine. I always reach for something I know and trust, like Advil Cold & Sinus. It combines Advil – the number-one selling pain reliever – and a powerful nasal decongestant to provide fast relief so you can continue on with your day.
From colds to sinus pressure, when you’re not feeling your best, it seems like you’re missing out on all of the fun. With a night out, a weekend getaway, or even just your daily routine, you don’t want the drama of having a cold to stop you.
