My Social Life :)


Sick Day...

Today I woke up feeling like absolute crap, really shaky, nauseous, and just really cold. I haven't felt like this in a very long time... Thank God! So since I am lying in bed today I thought I would post something. 

I am not the best blogger, or even good at telling stories, but I love to write random pointless things haha! I get inspired over the most random things.
Since I am not feeling well today and I know its "flu season" I would share some of the things that make me feel better, just in case some of you out there feel the same way, which I hope not!

1. Laying under 5 blankets with sweat pants and a hoodie on.
Nothing really compares to that kind of comfort when you are sick, especially when you have the chills or a fever. SWEAT THAT CRAP OUTTA YOU! 

2. Eat a nice hot bowl of homemade chicken noodle or dumpling soup.
There is actually something in chicken stock that helps with colds or the flu, lots of vitamins and natural nutrients. So yes, it actually does help when you are sick.

3. Drinking some hot tea of any sort.
I normally make honey lemon tea, it helps with soar throats and just feels going going down. But since I don't   have a soar throat today, I will be drinking it just because its comforting :D haha! 

Since my husband isn't home, the only option for today is cuddling with my puppy, or just bundling up with some blankets. 

5.Take some Vitamin C and Echinacea
For those of you who don't know what echinacea is, it is a natural vitamin made up of herbs that help out with your immune system and helps cure the common cold. It is a miracle vitamin for sure! Honestly, they taste and smell horrible but I promise that is one of the only things that really helps you get better. SCOUTS HONOR :) Ohh!... They come in pill, tea, or liquid forms the pill and tea are the better tasting ones.

6. Take a nice warm bath
I love taking nice warm baths with a bath bomb from Lush or a bubble bath or just using scented candles all over, its relaxing and it really does help! 

7. Pray and spend time with God
You should do this ALL the time, but it helps to relax your body and mind, and you are giving all your cares to God, its important to do all the time, but its nice when your sick too ;)

8. Stay in bed
Get up only when you have to. Especially when you are sick to your stomach, you don't want to be moving around too much. 

9. Heating pad and/or ice pack
Depending on what is wrong, heat and ice help calm and relax your body. Put it on your neck, lower back, stomach and/or head. 

10. Crafting in bed
I love working on crafts or just making new things, so there is one way to keep you busy while you are sick and in bed. If you aren't the crafty type, then do something that keeps your attention, other than TV or video games. Or pull a me and sit on your computer blogging all day ;) haha!

What are some things that make you feel better when you are sick or just feeling lousy? 
I love hearing back from my readers :)


  1. Girl you are making me wish I was sick. Haha. Now I want to cuddle in blankets, eat soup and drink honey lemon tea! Hope you feel better soon.

  2. Haha! I guess it does sound better than what it really is. Thanks! I actually am feeling a lot better than I was before. :) I am still curled up in my blankets, lol!

  3. Oh no! Hope you feel better! The echinea should definitely help you!

    And homemade chicken noodle soup is amazing. My grandma makes it and OMG it's delish!

    And oddly enough, the last time I took a warm bubble bath was October of 2005. The next morning, I woke up feeling like death, out of nowhere! I was hospitalized a few days LATER and doctors thought I had bird flu. Then mrsa. Then other stuff. They never found what was wrong. So I associate the bath with my sickness.

    Well wasn't that a positive comment.. Sorry. ;)

  4. I am feeling much better, thank you! Ohh no, I would be terrified to take baths after all that! Well thanks for stopping by! :) You should try to take a bath again eventually ;)
