Kids, A Cold & The Dreaded Flu

Being around young children, all of us teachers know we’re bound to get sneezed and coughed on! And, as such, last week many of my kiddos were sneezing all over! And, although we try to teach them to cough in their elbows, use tissue to wipe away their snotty little noses, and wash their hands with soap, it never fails me… I catch their colds!
Sunday, I came down with this horrible cold. I had read on Pinterest about honey and cinnamon helping to alleviate symptoms within a day. Could this really be true? Whether it worked or not, what could it hurt to try it.

Is there anyone who doesn’t keep these ingredients on hand? So, I mixed it up just like the picture says, took it 3 times yesterday and presto! My cold isn’t gone BUT I feel like a million bucks today! How many of us say that in 1 day?
If you are skeptical of this like I was, give it a try anyway. It worked for me and maybe it will work for you. Plus, it’s easy to mix, could have lots of positive benefits and it’s free!
Stay healthy!
