Fall brings wonderfully cool weather and the beauty of changing leaves, but it also means the start of cold and flu season. While we hope you and your family stay safe and well this fall, if you do come down with a cold or the flu, we’re here for you with these tips to make your sick day a little bit better.
Stock the medicine cabinet
You don’t want to have to go out when you’re not feeling good, so stock up in advance on the medications you’ll need to feel better. DG has national and our own brands of health essentials including ibuprofen, cough medicine, cough drops, cold and flu medication and more. And be sure to have plenty of tissues, soap and hand sanitizer on hand. You can save more with our DG Brands like Rexall that has items for the whole family and DG Health.
Make it cozy
Whether you’re recuperating in bed or snuggled up on the couch, a soft, warm blanket always makes everything feel better. We have a wide selection of blankets in all your favorite colors and sizes to make you feel cozy and cared for. Fuzzy socks are great for more time on the couch as well.
Soup it up
Soup always tastes good when you’re sick. It’s also a great way to get the fluids you need when you’re feeling under the weather. Stock up on ingredients for your favorite soup recipe so you can whip up a batch to help get you on the road to recovery. If you don’t have a favorite, try our easy recipe for ABC meatball soup. We have other great Better-for-You recipes. And don’t forget to grab a couple of boxes of soup’s best friend: saltine crackers.
Don’t forget tea to soothe your throat. And you know what makes tea even more enjoyable? A cute mug to sip it out of.
Sick days can drag on and there’s only so much Netflix you can watch. Having an easy craft project on hand can help pass the time while you get better. Our DIY candles and jars are a simple, fun craft to do alone or with the family. Be sure to check out more crafts in our DG Craft Center.
Things to watch
When someone makes a store run, tell them to pick up a DVD from your local DG and don’t forget the popcorn.
