Loving life when sick

Loving life when sick may seem impossible, so maybe it would be more appropriate to say, love and care for yourself when sick. We've hit that time of year, when people are dropping like flies with health maladies. Cold. Flu. Pneumonia. Stomach Viruses. It's sickness season.

Life is busy, busy, busy. And when illness hits, it can be hard to throttle down, but it's important to practice self-care to help yourself recover more quickly. If you won't do it for yourself, do it for the unsuspecting souls around you. Trust me - your coworkers, friends, fellow volunteers, parishioners, PTA members, cosplayers, etc. - they don't want what you've got. Keep your germs to yourself and stay home, especially if you're coughing or sneezing like it's your full time job. 

Since you're at home practicing self-care, here are some things to do to help you love life a little bit more while you're sick. 

Try yoga for when you're sick

Get some sleep - your body is tired, so go with it

Consume something tasty and good for you, like honey, chicken soup, vitamin C. Here are some other ideas, plus info about the effectiveness

Take care of yourself so you can get back to your regularly scheduled loved, lived life quickly. Do you have a tip that helps you feel better when you're sick? We'd love to hear it in the comments below.
