prize_twoWow. Either you guys really like contests, or you really hate colds. Either way, we had an absolutely outstanding response to our March 13 contest. Here are our four winners. Each will win a Cold Survival Kit sponsored by the new zinc-based cold remedy, ZICAM. Each kit includes a hot water bottle with cover and blanket, a mug, green tea, chicken noodle soup, essential oils and a holder, bathtub salts, a $25 Chapters gift certificate and a selection of crossword and sudoku puzzles. We asked you to tell us how you nurse yourself back to health when you’re under the weather. Nikki says: "Rest & warmth work for me! I love my heated blanket, honey lemon tea and the couch with Ellen & Oprah for some company!! Though if I am feeling really bad, I combine all of this with a phone call to mom so she can come over and make her famous chicken soup (I still need to get that recipe!) and take care of me. I admit, I am 30 and still need my mom when I am feeling terrible, she always makes me feel better, so I would have definitely have to share this awesome prize with her:)" korona23 says: "The first thing I try to do is call in sick! There’s nothing worse than spreading your germs around and having people hate you! It’s really important to contain your virus and that means staying home and washing your hands frequently so as not to get your family sick as much as possible. Your body is telling you it needs to rest. So rest! It’s very hard to do in this incredibly punishing work-world and fast-paced home life, but the best thing you can do is just chill out, drink lots of fluids, sleep as much as you can and think positive thoughts. It’s not much more complicated than that!" Margaret Snyder says: "When I am feeling the cold coming on, I drink plenty of fluids, get plenty of rest, make and eat soups, apply mentholated rub to my chest and nose and I chat with my mum because even though I am a nurse, I still need her to tell me what to do when I am sick. Motherly comfort, to me, is still one of the best remedies to make me feel better." SusanT says: "I very rarely get a cold as I believe working in the school system has given me a stronger immune system - but for the rest of my family…home made chicken soup is great, and a humidifier at night in the room is also helpful." And we also have a grand prize winner who has won a Honeywell ‘Quiet Care’ humidifier and a light therapy lamp, courtesy of the new zinc-based cold remedy, ZICAM. Eva Mc says: "I had the worst cold ever this past month and I basically collapsed on the couch and waited until it ended. My fantastic husband took very good care of me and I’d love to win so that I could use it to take care of him the next time he falls ill." Congratulations to all our winners! And don't forget to enter our Sports Clutz contest, which runs until Monday, April 6.
