Hey, hey! Hope you are having a great weekend! I’ve been fighting a nasty cold, and decided to share with you some things I do to help relieve and heal my body while I’m sick. Hopefully, you are not in this situation now :), but if you are then I hope this will help you get better quickly!
One of the first things to do is to start drinking liquids. Tea and water are the best! This Throat Coat tea is good as well as green tea and peppermint tea. Drinking orange juice is also good for the vitamin C.
Next, I apply LOTS of essential oils 🙂 Peppermint, Thieves, Eucalyptus, etc. I rub them on with jojoba oil onto my neck, chest, ears (if they hurt), and forehead. I use Young Living Oils.
Eat PLENTY of healthy food. Don’t get me wrong, packaged chicken noodle soup, jello, and juice are delicious, but be sure to include fruits and veggies into your diet.
REST! REST! REST! This is so important. Sleep on the couch. Your bed. The living room chair. Wherever! But rest is so important, and will help your body heal quicker. (If you’re tired of sleeping but can’t get up and do much, watching your favorite is always an option :))
Take lots of hot showers and baths. This feels really good and helps relax your achy muscles. Plus, feeling clean and having freshly washed hair makes you feel better.
Obviously, there are many other ways to help get rid of sickness, but these are a couple of the main things I do to help my body recover and heal.
What is your favorite way to help yourself get better? Comment below and share your tip below! I’d love to hear about it!
Have a wonderful Sunday!
