It’s the time of year when lots of people suffer from at least one cold. While you may not be able to avoid ever getting sick, you can prep your bag to help you ward off the worst of it this winter. You carry your bag with you wherever you go, so it just makes sense to load it up with all the essentials for staying healthy, no matter what time of year it is. Here’s what you should toss into your bag today.
1. A Healthy Snack
Making sure you eat healthy boosts your immunity and helps your body battle the germs that cause a cold. Keeping a snack in your bag makes it less likely that you’ll eat junk food from the vending machine or the drive-thru when hunger strikes. An apple or orange is totally portable and ready to eat when you want it. Nuts, trail mix or a banana make other excellent options.
