Well-Being: Cold Combat


Hopefully nearing the end of this wretched cold and flu season, there are still folks out there suffering with a wicked winter cold. You can count me among those sufferers. My husband has been sucking on zinc lozenges for weeks now keeping the bugs at bay. I, however, cannot stand the taste of them nor enjoy the coating left on the tongue afterwards. If only there were an alternative.

Alas, I found one….and it dissolves quickly and doesn’t taste half bad either. Sambucol Black Elderberry Cold & Flu Relief is a serious miracle worker and homeopathic to boot! I was coughing, sneezing, stuffy and runny, had a sinus headache and overall felt pretty miserable. I took one of these quick dissolving tabs before bed and woke up feeling significantly better. I took another when I woke up the next morning and improved further. The directions say to take one every 3 hours. I haven’t been quite that consistent but can tell you that I am no longer stuffy, runny, headachey or miserable. I’m not quite 100% but pretty damn close. I’ll take it.


Ponder: A Challenge to be Happy

I LOVE this video! I don’t want to give away too much because you really should watch it, but I shared with a friend recently how much I appreciated something he’d done for me awhile back. He was surprised and touched by my words and I think it filled him with as much joy as his actions had for me months before. Gratitude is definitely a huge factor in this happiness gig. I challenge you to follow my lead and that of the folks in the video, and then share your experiences in the comments below. Come on; you can do it and make someone’s day in the process! Sounds like a win-win to me. Thank you….. 🙂
