Winter is just around the corner, which means that cold and flu season is also nearby. Considering the global COVID-19 pandemic, in this cold and flu season we need to take extra care of ourselves and our loved ones.

Staying home is one of the most effective ways to avoid and prevent any unwanted coughs and sneezes, but this sentiment is easier said than done. Many people are busy with work, school, appointments, and more. Plus, some people are simply more prone to falling ill in the colder months, which is why it is good to have supplies readily available in case you or your loved one is feeling under the weather.

Here are 3 essentials you'll want to have ahead of this cold and flu season to help ease your symptoms, keep you warm, snuggly and comfortable at home and even when you’re out and about:


1.    A humidifier to help ease your symptoms

Cold, dry weather and blistery winds in the winter can suck all the moisture from your skin, lips, and sinuses. To combat it, a warm mist humidifier like the Ultrasonic Aromatherapy Humidifier can help return moisture to your home, and in the process, soothe sore throats and dry noses. When it comes to COVID-19, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) specifically recommends humidifiers to ease flu symptoms.


  1. Loadshedding-Proof your Home with a Power Inverter


Loadshedding is still a reality in South Africa, and although summer might be easier to deal with - dealing with load-shedding on a cold winter night is not fun at all! That’s why it’s important to get yourself an energy supplementing power inverter this winter to keep the essential items on. With an inverter, you will be able to keep the work going at any time of the day. How about that Netflix and chill? I’d like to think you don’t want it cut short when you are left in the dark, right?

These power inverters are now essential in businesses and homes all over South Africa due to constant load-shedding. Inverters provide reliable transformation of DC power from a battery (such as the one in a car) into AC power that can then be used to run lights, televisions, laptops, electric drills, etc. 

You will need a car battery or a deep-cycle gel battery to power the inverters. How long the inverter lasts depends on the power of your battery. We would recommend batteries of 100Ah or higher.


3. Massage those flu aches and pains away


Winter comes with a lot of baggage, including the body aches and pains that accompany a cold. Instead of letting your body get stiff from all the rest that is needed to recover, why not get yourself one of the various massage devices to help relax your body, ease the pain and also enhance blood flow and circulation. Improved blood circulation helps the body fight off unnecessary infections.  Get the Double Heads Heating Massager or any of the other massage devices that you can find right here.
