The weather outside is frightful (especially in the days following a blizzard), but the fire is so delightful (except how drying it is to the skin and sinuses), and since we've no place to go (no. I missed two days of work this week. I've got places to be!), Let it Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow (Except, I'm over winter. Can it be spring yet?)
These last two weeks have been awful. The first week, I had this terrible cold, starting with exhaustion, then fever, then congestion (which, thankfully, my Chiropractor helped clear up), then cough and chest congestion. I've still got a bit of a cough, but thankfully, it's almost cleared up. Now it's just residual yuck that's still there. I think I caught it from someone at work (I have a pretty good idea who, too). A bunch of us had it, and as we passed each other in the hallway, we shared looks and words of sickie encouragement. Like we were all part of a team. Not a team I'd like to be a part of, honestly.
Begs the question, how can you stay well when you're stuck indoors, full of people who have fluey symptoms? It's easier said than done, but it's really just a matter of doing it.
1. Go to bed early
2. Drink tons of water
3. Get 5+ Servings of Fruit and veggies per day
4. Lay off the Junk Food
5. Stay Active
