Get Better Faster
We all get sick, and you will get better much faster by taking care of your needs and resting!
A few tips:
Ask for help from your spouse and child if they are old enough.
Have some easy meals in the cabinet or freezer in case you're not up to cooking (healthy canned soup, frozen veggies, and quick rice are great).
Eliminate what you can from your workload. Many things, such as housework can wait! As far as going to work, it's much better to call in for a day or two than to try to do too much and end up being sick longer. You'll be a lot more productive if you just stay home and get well!
I use essential oils in the diffuser by my bed. I feel like essential oils really help support my immune system.
Epson salt baths are great for sore, achy muscles when you're sick.
I find that when I do get sick it's because I have let some of my self-care slide such as being overly busy, skipping green smoothies, not getting regular massage and not getting enough sleep. It is very tempting to just try to push through and carry on with your regular schedule even when you're sick. We all want to do it all and accomplish our goals, but by resting and taking care of yourself you'll be back at it faster, healthier, and stronger!
And don’t forget to reschedule your massage appointment.
