As the colder months begin to approach, it is time for businesses to begin thinking about cold and flu season. According the CDC, flu season can begin as early as October and stretch as late as May. Putting your logo on branded preventative products for cold and flu season can help you, your employees and your customers stay healthy this season!
Tips for Staying Healthy During Cold and Flu Season
1. Keep your hands clean to reduce the spread of germs. Wash your hands after touching surfaces that could be dirty. If you are unable to access soap and water, try an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
At Crestline, all of our custom hand sanitizers are made in the USA in order to confidently ensure that they are registered and meet all of the FDA requirements for product safety.
Promotional hand sanitizers are great giveaways because they come in a variety of sizes, gels, wipes and sprays to ensure that you get what you need! Our hand sanitizers come perfectly packaged for use on the go, or to be kept on service counters and desks.
2. Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when coughing and sneezing to avoid spreading germs to other people. Be sure to throw tissues away immediately! Avoid touching areas of the face such as eyes, nose and mouth to protect you from contracting an illness such as a cold or flu.
Promotional tissues are a great item to help keep customers and employees healthy during cold and flu season. Compact tissue packets allow for easy storage in your pocket, purse or bag. Being prepared will help you limit the spread of illness-causing germs.
3. Practice healthy habits every day to limit your risk of getting sick. Drink plenty of fluids, eat nutritious food, get enough sleep and make sure you incorporate physical activity into your day. Do everything you can to keep your body in good shape.
Promotional drinkware items make great giveaways year round, but providing employees or customers a custom water bottle during cold and flu season is a great way to encourage them to drink more. For added nutrients during cold and flu season, try a Fruity Infuser Bottle and fill it with healthy fruits to enjoy while drinking water.
4. Know when you are sick and take care of yourself. If you begin to feel sick, do your best to stay home and avoid contact with others. Do not go to work or school when you are feeling unwell. Allow time for yourself to recover before going back to work.
Promotional thermometers can help you identify when you are too sick to go to school or work. Thermometers are great items to giveaway to parents, in doctors’ offices, or at health and wellness events.
