It's like clockwork — as soon as the weather starts to turn, your nose starts to run and you feel that irritating tickle in your throat. You reach for the tissues and the thermometer but what else might you need in your seasonal repertoire? Think of this checklist as a full wellness toolkit when you’re starting to feel run down.
A warm, hearty bowl of soup
Maybe you enjoy the canned chicken and stars when you were a kid, but we recommend prepping a hearty batch of soup for the freezer so you can easily pull it out when you feel under the weather. How about a hearty vegetable stew with cauliflower and zucchini or this butternut squash version with ginger and rosemary? You’ll be thankful you did.
Who says you can’t buy yourself a gift when you’re feeling under the weather? We think a new down or microplush blanket for curling up on the couch sounds like just what the doctor ordered on a sick day. How about this deep green one or this purple plush throw? Get comfy.
Sure, you could watch a rerun of your go-to comfort show, but we think it’s the perfect time to dig into a new show on your favorite streaming service. If you don’t think you’ll be out and about anytime soon, you might as well queue up the latest thriller series or romantic comedy to pass the sniffles by. If you find anything worth watching, let us know!

Eventually, you might just need some symptom relief — and that’s what we’re here for. Here’s what to stock up on for the season:
