Melissa Gerstein, “Mommy Certified” Tips on Controlling the Chaos This Holiday Season.

The Holiday season is a wonderful time of year, a chance to reconnect with friends and loved ones. However, as many people know, the holiday season can also be chaotic and stressful.

Melissa Gerstein, Co-Founder of Lifestyle Brand, “The Moms”, partnered with Zicam® and Hilton Garden Inn on a media tour featuring mommy certified tips to survive the holidays while at home or on the road.

Whether hosting at home or traveling for the holidays, no one has time to deal with a cold for longer than necessary.

While there are no products that actually prevent a cold, simple steps everyone should take this time of year are to wash your hands often with soap and water and avoid touching your face with unwashed hands.

But for anyone that does feel a cold coming the new homeopathic Cold Remedy Medicated Fruit Drops from Zicam® should be in the medicine cabinet.

These gummy drops shorten the length of a cold when taken at the first sign of symptoms. They are available in an assortment of fruity flavors and they are delicious.

This time of year, it’s not just cold symptoms that people worry about. People can also feel more lonely and isolated when they have a cold. That’s why Zicam® is passionate about finding ways to help people stay connected.

Zicam’s ColdSense mobile app is a fun way to help people stay on top of their potential exposure to the common cold, and also connects them to digital ‘get well’ messages to send to friends and loved ones.

Traveling or hosting for the holidays can be stressful. Everyone can relate to the situation of having to suffer through sleeping on the couch at your in-laws, or even more uncomfortable having them sleep on your couch.

At the holidays why not think about planning a mini-vacation and looking for a place that you can have an experience.

This year, Hilton Garden Inn made even more enhancements to its already award-winning food & beverage offerings, and have some amazing new menu items and inventive handcrafted cocktails.

From made-to-order breakfasts to gourmet coffee to small plates like flatbreads and fresh hummus and veggies, to delicious larger meals, you can enjoy a wonderful experience dining at your hotel before heading to visit family.

And after spending the day celebrating with family, you can wrap up your time together back at the Hilton Garden Inn and enjoy some of the handcrafted cocktails created by a mixologist.
