Send a Little Bit of Comfort and Love With Kleenex Share Packs #KleenexSWS

Last week I went through the worst cold I probably have ever had. It was an incredibly strong head cold that featured non-stop sneezing and so much congestion, I could barely breathe. The only good thing about this cold, is that it hit me while my boyfriend was here and he took really good care of me. He let me stay in bed, he cooked all meals and he made sure I had hot tea and a box of Kleenex on my night stand. Kleenex brand tissues are absolutely necessary when I have to wipe my nose all day long. They are so gentle and at the same time strong enough to handle the mess, know what I mean?  Here are a few of the "rules" I had to follow while he took care of me.

Adrian's tips for kicking a winter cold to the curb fast:

  • Rest- Give your body a break and let it recuperate so it can have the strength to fight the viruses. 
  • Hydrate- Water, hot tea, caldo de pollo and orange juice. Drink up and keep your body hydrated.
  • Vaporub- This is something my mother also highly believes in and we always keep the big bottle around for the kids. Apply on your chest and let the cooling comfort soothe your sinuses and fight the phlegm.
  • Medicate- Grab your most trusted cold medicine and use it. Your body can't fight the cold alone. He has some of his really good stuff he buys in Mexico so I was knocked out most of the time. Just don't over medicate, I know my girls love to chug the medicine bottle but that is NOT OK.
  • Relax- The world won't end if you take some time to let your body heal. If you remember things that must be done, make a to-do-list so you can take care of them after you are better OR delegate that list to others. Hey that's where having a big family really comes in handy.

If I hadn't followed his rules I probably would have been sick a lot longer. I spent the three days in bed pretty miserable, but it was really nice to have someone to take care of me and make sure that I was as comfortable as possible. 

Comfort...that's what everyone needs when they are sick or when they are going through a rough time. It really doesn't take a lot to let someone know that you care and that you are thinking about them. Kleenex has come up with some very neat and simple ways for you to send someone a little bit of comfort. Whether they are sick, far away, or just lonely, a small gesture like a Kleenex Share Pack will let them know that someone is thinking about them and cares.
