Feel Better Faster
When the winter chills come to visit you, remember that you'll feel better faster if you give yourself the chance to rest.
Prepare for the season of sniffles with these tips.
Have some easy meals available in the pantry 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 work load. Many things, such as housework can wait! Overworking your system with non-essential tasks will slow down the healing process.
Take a sick day from work. You'll be a lot more productive if you can just stay home and get well. If that's not an option, prioritize your most important tasks and head back to bed as soon as possible.
Use aromatherapy oils in a diffuser by your bed. Essential oils help support the immune system.
Epsom salt baths are very good for sore muscles and achy muscles when you're sick.
It's very tempting to just try to push through and carry on with your regular schedule when you're sick. We 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.
