Advil Congestion ReliefIt’s that time of year again.. cold and flu season.  I am so grateful that my kids haven’t gotten a cold in the last month but both my husband and I have.  We are huge fans of the meds when we get sick.  We’re a couple of babies.  No really.. my thought is (if you are an adult), take what you need to take (Advil Congestion Relief, for example) as soon as you feel the cold coming on.  There’s absolutely no sense in not doing what you can to make yourself feel better, if you can.  That’s why we keep our medicine cabinet stocked with cold, sinus, and allergy relief medications year round.  One tip I need to give you is to always keep medications away from small children.  We keep our medicine cabinet up high and the door locks.  I recommend that you do the same!

Recognizing that congestion comes in many forms, from a stuffy nose to a crowded street, the makers of Advil® Congestion Relief are helping consumers breathe easier by alleviating congestion in two ways this cold and flu season – by providing the right relief for sinus congestion and relief to congestion problems facing communities around the country through the Advil® Congestion Relief Project.

Advil® Congestion Relief Project
The cold and flu brand is putting a twist on its tagline – “The Right Relief for the Real Problem,” and providing literal relief in congested places across the U.S. from undersupplied schools, congested traffic lanes and more. In its first relief stop, the Advil® Congestion Relief Project unveiled a new library at P.S. 130 in the Bronx on Tuesday, November 15.

Here is my story about how congestion has affected and been partially relieved in Atlanta.

Atlanta constructed the 285 loop two make it easier for individuals who lived in the outer suburbs of city to commute to Atlanta more efficiently.  The loop though had a side-effect which was that more people were living outside the city instead of inside the city which caused a lot of congestion on all highways leading in and out of Atlanta.

Recently though, Atlanta has implemented a couple of things that are proving to help with congestion. These include a traffic light system on on-ramps leading onto major highways.  The red and green lights cycle through every few seconds signaling drivers when they can proceed onto the highway. This has resulted in a staggered flow of traffic onto the highway as opposed to the onslaught of cars that used to congest the ramp areas because everyone was trying to funnel onto the highway at the same time.

At first I thought the ramp lights were unnecessary because I thought it would just cause more traffic on the on-ramp and the roads leading to the ramps but in fact the light did neither and actually has improved how quickly I get onto the highway and got me on my way.

These are just a couple of ways that Atlanta has dealt with congestion.

The Advil® Congestion Relief Project is looking for additional communities in need of relief. You can even enter your own community story by answering the questions:

  1. What’s congested in your community?
  2. How does that affect your community?
  3. How could Advil® Congestion Relief relieve your community’s congestion?

Advil is a brand I trust and it’s nice to see that they offer now a flu product

I felt the same way about the traffic lights on the ramps but now I like them, too! Congestion sucks – whether on the road or in one’s nasal passages. Yay for relieving both!

We recently moved from a small town to a large congested city. Not really sure how the congestion can be helped but I would be interested in looking into it further.
