This flu season is unlike any other due to the pandemic. My anxiety is both my kryptonite and my superpower during the pandemic because I'm constantly worrying, but I'm also preparing and making sure I have the tools I need in the event I, or someone in my home, becomes ill.
I am not a doctor, but I know that sometimes your first aid interventions can make all the difference between having a minor sickness or a life threatening illness. Here's what I have stocked in my first aid kit this season.

this may be the most important tool you can have dealing with covid-19. Monitoring your oxygen levels can help you to know when it's time for medical attention, even if you feel fine.
monitoring your temperature is also very important when checking on overall health. having a working thermometer is an essential tool in your first-aid kit
comfort items can make a big difference in your health and your moods. If you have body aches, a nice heating pad can help you feel better and provide relief from pain.
these re my FAVORITE vitamin immune boosters! Great flavors as well.
a reusable ice pack is an essential in my first aid kit. It's helpful if you have a fever or any injuries that can be helped by a cold compress.
if you do become ill, the last thing you are going to feel like doing is going to the store to get some OTC medicine. Also, your local store may also be out of medicine because of the high demand these days. Stock up ahead of time so that if you need it you'll have it.
First aid kit:
make sure you also have all of the traditional items in your kit also such as bandages and antiseptic ointment.
