Nope, we’re not just going to call it a kit, this means stocking up on a lot of instant noodles, pork and beans, canned goods, water. Put clothes in a carry-all bag just in case of flash floods. Don’t rely on the rescuers. Sometimes, best to be your own hero. Bring out your trusty sweaters and place it where it is easy to get. Invest in a good ‘ol sturdy umbrella and knee-high boots.
- Clean your house
While you are inside the house, stay productive by cleaning. Did you know that molds or fungus love moisture? And because of that, it triggers common allergies, and the symptoms are unpleasant such as sneezing, runny nose, watery eyes. You don’t want that do you? So clean your house by using a trusty vacuum cleaner that completely removes dirt and dust that piles up in the nooks and crannies in your home. One innovative cleaning product you can use is Rainbow Vacuum Cleaning System. Unlike regular vacuum cleaners, Rainbow has a unique water filtration system that traps dust permanently so it can’t return to your home. It is the only vacuum cleaner certified as an air purifier by the American Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM) making it a proven air cleaner and asthma & allergy friendly appliance.
- Stay healthy
While you still have a stock of processed foods, still, stay healthy by drinking a lot of water. Instead of coffee, you may drink up on some hot tea, there are a lot in the market. Don’t you know breathing in the hot steam of tea emulates the hair follicles in the nose, and moves out the germs more. Try it, nice to relax and detox at home. Set up your own gym in the house, you know you can’t go out of the house when it’s raining cats and dogs. Don’t forget to take Vitamin C or any multivitamins, it’s your protection from the cold weather.
Make sure that you disinfect your areas to avoid continuous transmission of germs and diseases. Also, avoid touching your eyes and your nose except if you really need to like washing your face.
