Tips for when you’re sick…

tips-when-youre-sick

It is that time of the year when everyone is either getting over a cold/flu or is just getting it…I currently have a cold! I thought it would be helpful to share tips for when you are sick.

  • Stay hydrated! Drink lots of water, juice (especially with lots of vitamin C) and tea
    • My favorite tea to drink when I’m sick is chamomile with honey, or what I also like to do is mix 5 or 6 cough drops into a cup of hot water and drink it as it…sounds weird but so good!
  • Avoid caffeinated drinks, they will dehydrate you.
  • Rest! Rest! Rest! – get as much sleep as you possibly can!
  • If the air in your room/house is dry, use a humidifier. You can even add a 2 or 3 drops of essential oil in it if you’re into it. I use an oil diffuser almost everyday but more so when I’m sick and my favorite oils to use are lavender, peppermint and eucalyptus.
  • Take an epsom salt bath. It will help relief body aches, stress, eliminated toxins from your body and much more!
  • Wash your hands often!!!
  • Eat and drink things with lots of vitamin C!
  • Drink pineapple juice…not only does it contain 50% of the daily requirement for vitamin C but it also helps with your cough.
  • Gargle with Salt water…this is my least favorite and I honestly never do it but I always get told to do so.
  • Avoid exercise, stress, daily chores as much as you can.
  • Get some fresh air…it’s good for you!

Hope you avoided getting sick this season!

Tips for When You’re Sick.

What are some things you do when you’re sick?

Tea Time Thursday

My goal for this year was for me to blog everyday, well that has not been the case. I have been so busy at work, my bosses mom who helps with the kids when me and the other nanny aren’t there got super sick for a good few weeks, and so I have been staying past my hours and helping and even working weekends. By the time I get home I just shower and get in bed….I’m exhausted! And now I think I’m getting sick 😔

I think starting next week (hopefully) my schedule will go back to normal so I can get back to normal things in life; starting with this blog! One thing I want to start doing is tea time Thursdays (TTT)…meaning I talk about what type of tea I’m drinking that day! So here is the first TTT, it is the organic sweet almond green tea From Davids tea. My sweet coworker knows how much I love tea and got me a mix of teas from Davids tea (my favorite tea store) for Christmas! Out of all the teas that were in the box, I would have to say this is my favorite…I love the smell and the taste of it!
