Even though it’s almost spring, the flu is still going around and people are justifiably concerned about staying healthy. Several members of my family have been sick in the past few weeks and I have escaped the virus, so far. Repeated hand washing and wiping surfaces clean have served me well. In addition, being prepared has helped lower my stress level, which can increase immune response.
I always have decongestant, pain reliever, tissues, liquid soap and hand sanitizer in my house. You don’t need to buy out the pharmacy; however, it is a good idea to keep the basics so you don’t run out at inconvenient times. Remember that all medications, including over-the-counter drugs have expiration dates, so check what you currently have on hand. If you are going to store cold and flu supplies, keep them in a basket or box and label the container so you can get it quickly when you need it.
Soup, yogurt, eggs, applesauce and gelatin might appeal to someone with no appetite. They are fast and easy to make, serve and eat. Consider stocking staples that can stay in your pantry for a while and are available in single-serve containers, in case no one is able to prepare meals or clean up afterward.
