There’s nothing worse than that telltale tickle in your throat signifying the start of a cold or flu. Whether you are trying to fight off the latest winter bug or in full sick mode, we’ve put together some of our favourite tips to help you get through this flu season!

 Start with prevention. With these freezing cold temps, we recommend bundling up from head to toe. MEC’s Pom Pom Hat ($12) is the perfect combination of cute and cosy. It’ll keep your ears and head protected from the cold winds!
