Ricola “Call in Well” Campaign and Ricola Prize Pack ($25 Visa Gift Card) Giveaway! #swissherbs #callinwell

We all have our terrible sick days, but what about those days when we are feeling well? We usually don’t take to remember those days when we feel great, void of any sickness! I know I don’t. The days I am well, I just go about my busy day and don’t take a minute to stop. Now there is something we could do on those well days!

As the cold and flu season hits its peak this month, Ricola®, the leading manufacturer of soothing herb cough drops from Switzerland, is encouraging consumers to trade in their sick days for well days by inviting them to “Call in Well.” Now through January 31st, consumers can call 1-855-4-WELLDAY or text RICOLA (22122) to share what fun things they’d do if they took a “well day” off. One lucky winner per day will win $500. Visit Ricola’s Facebook page for official rules.DSC_0613-1024x682

There are steps we can all take to make us feel better this time of year – that way you can go out and enjoy all the great things winter has to offer. For me, on my well day, I like to go to work, come home and play with the kids, and then retreat for some me time. Me time usually revolves around watching some Downton Abbey or reading a good book. Anything where I am relaxed and then ready to conquer the next day! So, what would you do on your well day!

Win it: One winner will receive the following prize pack:

Ricola Soothing Relief Kit (which includes Ricola product & cough drop tin,   $25 Visa gift card

    Just relax and do some things around the house. My mom works for a hospital in the billing department and because it is so stressful they get one “mental health” day a month that they can just take the day off.

  2. says

    Oh my goodness, I so haven’t appreciated my healthy days! As I’ve been sick the last 2 weeks. bleh.

    On my get well days I do a lot of reading and just enjoying my silly daughter as she tells me stories and dances and entertains me. Those are the best days.

  3. Cynthia R says

    I’ve thought about this in detail and here’s my perfect day, go for a run, nice breakfast, get a pedicure, go to starbucks and get a vanilla scone and iced chai, read in the sunshine, and watch my favorite shows on netflix, all while eating my favorite foods and snacks.

  4. Paula Willbanks says

    I have a chronic illness so I never take a well day for granted. Those are the days I get out and go shopping, have lunch with a friend, go on an outing with my family or clean. :)

  5. says

    Ricola has saved my throat many times! What would I do with a well day? Let’s see–go out shopping, go to a spa–maybe even go to a mall and just walk around.

  6. says

    I am a stay at home mama but that doesn’t mean I ever get a sick day or a well day for that matter. On my dream well day my hub would stay home from work to take care of the kiddos while I went to the spa. A mama, could always dream, can’t I!?!

  7. Kim Simpson says

    I would love to sleep in, get up, shower, eat breakfast, and get projects done around the house – all undisturbed. :)

  8. Carrie Phelps says

    I haven’t had a get well day off in so long that I don’t remember what I last did. If I were to get one now I think I would get caught up on some much needed sleep.

  9. says

    I had to laugh when I saw the call in well – every boss that sees that is going to hate that their employees are getting the idea to call in well! I would love a day to relax and read a good book myself.

  10. Wild Orchid says

    On my well day I would take a long outdoor walk.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    I spend my get well day reading in my pajamas! I could really use Ricola right now, I’m not feeling too well today. Also, now I have the Reeecooola in my head from the commercial! LOL.

  12. Virginia Rowell says

    On my well day off, I would go for a walk in the park for some fresh air and then do some shopping, go out to eat and come home, relax and read.

  13. Catarina says

    I would love to sleep in, have breakfast made for me and then spend the rest of the day with my family doing something fun together.

  14. Geoff K says

    I’d love to spend the day watching movies at the theater, browsing in bookstores, meeting up with friends for lunch or coffee, and slacking off at home.

  15. Debra S says

    I would love to say I’d go and do do do all sorts of things, but frankly I’m tired. I’d sleep in first of all then maybe do movies and take a nice long walk.

  16. Rachel Cartucci says

    If it were summer I would go to the beach but in winter….just chill at the house…maybe watch some old X files episodes.

  17. alona y says

    I sleep until I naturally wake up on my own (the luxury!), pamper myself with a home spa and nail session and then relax and veg out!

  18. Danielle Johnson says

    I would actually clean my house as i have been so sick for most of december and january and have extremely neglected my duties.

  19. Kymberly Pray says

    read, Read, READ. Yes, I do love to read :)
    I would probably fix myself an indulgent meal like homemade waffles, then get cozy and settle in for hours of living vicariously through the characters in whatever novel I was reading at that time. Oh, and there will be chocolate too!

  20. Dana Matthews says

    I have an autoimmune disease so these days are rare…but when I do, I spend time with my beautiful 15 year old.

  21. Jacinda Dady says

    Lay on the couch, watch my favorite series (whatever that be at the time), and fill out giveaway and sweeps ;) !!! Thanks for the opportunity to join!

  22. Diane L. says

    I think it would be nice if people had a day to call in “well”, but with the stipulation that we use the day to volunteer for a worthy cause.

  23. says

    I’m a little under the weather right now so a well day sounds great! :) I’d go out and enjoy the sunshine and take time to do some reading!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  24. Ann B. says

    I like to go bargain food shopping..hitting all the sales in all the stores, then I come home and look for recipes to make!!!

  25. Kristy Dobbs says

    I like to catch up on sleep. I’m a stay at home mom of two and a freelance writer so I spend a lot of late nights writing when my house is quiet

  26. K-Squared says

    As a activity, on my get well day I would either “feed a cold or starve a fever!”. It is this way in which was taught by my single-mother. However, since “Ricola” offers a product that is made with REAL Honey Herb and not only taste delicious, but has that of a combination that soothes and relaxes the mouth and throat. Therefore my activity would be as I take a “Ricola”, sit back and day-dream while laying on the beach – if my heath permits – dreaming I am on vacation! It is this I would choose because I’ve never been able to afford a vacation!
