It’s that time of the year again. Everyone in class has a runny nose, nasty cough and your roommate is sleeping on the toilet tonight…and she hasn’t had a sip of alcohol.
Every winter, the flu sweeps over us humans like a plague. One by one, we are all bedridden, a full canister of Nyquil and a glass of lukewarm water beside our beds. Sound familiar?
Today I am sharing with you how to make being sick, suck less! And how to not let yourself fall behind completely. Follow these five tips and you’ll be back on your feet and grinding in no time.
View this small period of time as an amazing opportunity for your physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.
All us kids ever do is complain about how tired we are! So take a shot of that NyQuil and let it be lights out – time to get that much needed rest!
If you’re anything like me, one of your New Years Resolutions is to drink more water. So fill up your water bottle, or SEVERAL for that matter (save yourself an annoying trip!) and hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. Your body will thank you and get healthy real quick. Also, if you hate water, try flavoring your water or try a nice chamomile or green tea. (Remember that green tea is caffeinated! Buy decaf if you’re trying to sleep).
3. Catch up
I know there is a show you have been dying to start (or finish)! Or maybe you’re a bookworm, like me, and you’ve been dying to have some time alone to read. Need a new book? Well thank you BASED God that in today’s day and age, you can purchase almost any book online. (Bonus points: google a coupon code!)
Your diet is naturally suppressed when you’re sick, so take advantage and get a head start on that spring break bod. Within reason of course. But take this time to nibble on some toast, saltine crackers and water. Give your body a rest from all those insanely healthy, weird recipes you’ve been trying.
5. Work from home.
If you literally do nothing the entire time you’re sick, you will be greeted with a shit storm upon returning to the real world. Keep in touch with professors, classmates, bosses, etc. Stay up to date with your syllabi and do what work you can from the comfort of your bed with Gilmore Girls playing in the background.
