So me and this cold had been flirting with each other since last Friday. Yesterday it finally decided to hit me head on and I have been in misery since. I was so sick I almost missed a deadline yesterday and another this morning. I just can't think, much less create content, when my head feels the size of a hot air balloon. I got the two most important things out of the way but still have a huge list of to-do's. It's also the first of the month, which means I have a lot of subscriptions and bills to deal with too!
But even when you are sick as a dog, life goes on and all those responsibilities have to be dealt with. I compiled a short list of things that will surely make you feel better on your worst sick day. Sure you won't be 100% better, but they might help you enough to at least function your way through the day.
Your fave coffee or tea - Yesterday I had tea all day and today I had some of my new Pumpkin Spice creamer in coffee. This is the first time I try this and it is delicious! Getting to drink it in one of my new Anthro mugs is also a treat too! Bring out your prettiest mug and take your time preparing your drink. Then take a few minutes to actually enjoy it!
Pretty nail colors - Even if your face is swollen and red you can still wear a pretty and happy color on your nails. Cute nail polish always perks me up.
A great scent and lip balm - I am doing this as soon as I pop in the shower, though I will probably opt for a lighter scent than Forever Red. Your favorite scent and a great balm on your lips will help you feel pampered and less icky.
Remind yourself you are not always so unattractive - When I went to wash my face today I could not believe I was the person looking back at me. My eyes were so swollen and red, my nose is also super red and peeling. Quite a hag! I had to remind myself that I am not always this scary looking creature. So I posted a picture of myself on a better day to remind myself that it's only temporary.
Catch up on a favorite show - I have a ton of work and will not be able to sit and watch. But I am plugging in my headphones and at least listen to a few episodes of The Walking Dead while I work. Nothing like the zombie apocalypse to liven up any day. In fact I should have added Daryl Dixon to the list, for surely watching him for a while will many anyone feel better!
I would love to know some of your tips for feeling better on the yuckiest of sickly days.
