Guess who caught a cold! I was sick over the weekend and let me tell you, I was literally useless for most of it, which sucks
complete and utter ass. So for today, I wanted to compile all of my “get well soon” tricks. I spend a lot and I mean a lot of time on the internet, but sometimes “Dr. Google” just isn’t the way to go, ya know?
Do You Drink Tea?
Cause I do! All the damn time! And tea is a gift from the heavens let me tell you. Even if you’re not drinking it to “get better quick”, it’s like, 99.9% water. Which means you’re staying hydrated! And that’s exciting!
Can you tell I had some cough medicine?
There are particular teas that are going to help more than others for sure, however I suck and hate them all. So I have been drinking earl grey and just adding stuff to it. Cinnamon makes me feel better so that’s usually my go to, although mint teas work wonders.
Own A Tub?
Holy snap, taking a bath! Now if you’re like me, sitting in the tub is boring. That just means we need to spice it up, right? I am a sucker for candles and bubbles. So naturally I light way too many candles and throw a bath bomb or some bubble bath in. Sitting and relaxing helps your body relax, which helps you get better just that little bit faster. You don’t really notice how being sick makes your whole body hurt and feel exhausted. The candles make amazing mood lighting which isn’t overwhelming to your eyes, and since you probably can’t smell, the insane amount of candles won’t ruin your day. I’m not lying when I say I light too many candles. The bath bombs and bubble bath are purely there to keep me wanting to sit in the tub.
Don’t Type Your Symptoms Into Google
Google is not a doctor. Please do yourself, and literally everyone else, a favour, if you’re scared that something is wrong GO SEE A REAL DOCTOR! They’re there to help.
Be Better Than Me And Remember To Eat
I woke up yesterday morning feeling a bit better, and starving since I forgot to eat for a whole day. Food is good for you. Your body needs to have energy to help you get better. Please remember to eat <3
Be Kind To Yourself
Remember to rest, take a day off work to heal. Catch up on a movie and relax. Your body needs time to do its thing. You matter, don’t forget that.
And That’s What I’ve Got
My advice only goes so far. But that’s what this is; advice. Don’t use this over a doctors medical opinion please. PLEASE. Against my cold, these tips have really helped me survive. That and Benadryl when I just cannot sleep. If you’re sick too, may you get better soon and are able to get back to your normal lifestyle.
On A Side Note
Happy first day of spooky season! I wish I wasn’t starting October off sick, but here we are.
Thanks for reading!
