    It starts with an achy body and the sniffles and before you know it, your eyes are puffy and red and your nose is all stuffed up. You're coughing, you're sneezing, you're completely miserable. Welcome to the height of cold and flu season, friends.

    Who has time to be sick? Sure, playing hooky from class or work is fun, but not when you’re surrounded by a sea of used tissues.

    The good news is you don't necessarily have to load up on the sleep-inducing cold and flu medicines, despite the fact that everyone around you has fallen ill or you’re starting to feel under the weather. There are plenty of ways to combat the common cold through your daily routine. Washing hands often, getting enough sleep, and even eating some of your favorite foods can keep the sniffles at bay or lessen the time you have them.
