HALLS - ULTIMATE Cold and Flu Season Survival Kit #Giveaway(CLOSED)


A survey that was just released about the cold and flu season stated that Americans show up (or at least consider showing up) for work while sick during cold & flu season.  Some because they won’t get paid if they don’t go, some because their boss pressures them and others because they simply have too much to do and fear falling behind.

Some stats that really stick out are:
  •  Nearly half of Americans (44 percent) would consider going to work with a fever.
  • More than a third of Americans (32 percent) said they would show up to work no matter how sick they get this season.
  • Nearly half of Americans (46 percent) said they did not take a sick day last cold & flu season (October 2009 – March 2010).
  • One in five Americans (19 percent) feel pressured by their boss or supervisor to head into work when they’re sick.
  • One in three (31 percent) Americans said they wouldn’t get paid for taking off on a sick day.
  • One in 10 (11 percent) said they would likely fall behind on their bills by taking a sick day.
  • More than 10 percent of Americans thought they would not likely receive their next pay raise or promotion, or worse, would lose their job for calling out sick.

    hand sanitizer and soap in kitchen and all bathrooms. With older kids, it took me a while to start using the sanitizer wipes at the grocery store to wipe down the cart handle before shopping. I think that was a quicker habit for those with little ones that would sit in the carts.

    My favorite way is to make Eucalyptus Essential Oil Spray(easy to find at local health food store or online too). Just add some drops to a spray bottle of water and spray things like doorknobs and phones etc..
