As an adult, however, an illness can quickly turn from an annoyance into a major hassle. Taking time off of work, arranging childcare, making doctor appointments, ordering medication... whether or not you're the one who has the cold or flu or you are taking care of a member of your family, everything to do with being sick quickly adds up to being miserable.
Fortunately, even while the cold and flu season hits its peak this month, there is still reason to smile thanks to the leading manufacturer of soothing herb cough drops from Switzerland, Ricola.
Family owned and operated for more than 80 years, Ricola is one of the most modern and innovative manufacturers of herb drops in the world. But did you know that Ricola products now include around 50 different herb specialty flavors? And that all of the herbs used are organically cultivated in the Swiss mountains?
It is no wonder that fans all across the globe sing the praises of Chrüterchraft, Ricola's magic herb blend, for the strength, flavor, power and results of these cough drops!
This month, however, Ricola is taking things even further by encouraging consumers to trade in their sick days for well days and "Call in Well!"
That's right! Ricola would like everyone to take the appropriate actions to feel better during this virus-filled time of year so that we can go out and enjoy all the great things winter has to offer instead.
But that's not all, the Call in Well Sweepstakes takes things one step further by having consumers call 1-855-4-WELLDAY or text RICOLA (22122) to share what fun things they would do if they took a "well day" off. One lucky winner per day (until January 31st, 2014) will win $500, a pretty great start to a day off, isn't it?
What would you do with your "well day" off? Venture outdoors for some skiing, skating or snowboarding? Stay in and do some shopping? Or never change out of your pajamas and spend the day catching up on your soaps and talk shows in between naps? Sounds good to me!
Visit Ricola's Facebook page for the full details and rules for this fun sweepstakes and be sure to enter for your own "well day" off to indulge in whatever it is that makes you happy!
Be sure to head over to Ricola.com to find out about their full line of amazing products, their herbs, Chrüterchraft, sustainability, games and much more!
Plus, thanks to their generosity, one person will be even more prepared to enjoy their next "well day" off, because...
