Yep. It's happened. You, my dear Spatulan, are under the weather. Well, let's also pretend that I am feeling the same way. (Which, I am. No pretending here.) But just to keep it interesting, let's pretend that you are still able to go to work. You just feel crappy. You don't really have a fever and your snot isn't bright green or yellow. You're probably just "breathing warm air out of [your runny] nose" and you don't have any nasal spray. This post is how to make your self feel a little bit better if you're feeling plum wore out after the holiday
What You Need:
♥Rest. Take a nap during the day if you can manage it. Go to bed early if you can't.
♥Liquids. Drink up me hearties, yo ho!
♥Comfortable clothing. If you can go to work in your PJs and not get called out: awesome.
♥A scarf. I really like my neck warm when I don't feel well.
♥Healthy things to eat. I know, I know. But comfort food can be healthy too. You do need to eat something.
♥Something Soft. A cozy blanket, that giant sweatshirt you love, or your favorite stuffed animal.
♥Green Smoothie. Cause they taste so good and are so good for you. (I'll give you my variations)
♥Ginger lemon tea. A friend gave me this recipe and I love how it's Spicy, Tangy, Sweet! Almost like a TLC album!
♥Vitamins. Yeah, well. You knew this was coming.
♥Face Tissues. By the truck load. And make sure they are soft so you don't chap up your nostrils.
♥Hand lotion, Chapstick, a good book, a good movie, some knitting. Just... you need this stuff.
♥Dark chocolate. Because it's a cure-all. And it is so too a healthy food. So there. *pout*

Take it easy there, mate. Don't try to run a marathon even if you're training for one. Go slow and drink lots of fluids. You know, just remember what your mom told you when you were sick when you were little. Do you hear her voice? OK. Good. Now, take something for the fever, drink lots of fluids. Oh, and also... know when to go to the doctor. If none of your home remedies are working and you still feel like the underbelly of a muddy ... I don't know... a Skeksis... make a doctor's appointment to get that snot straightened out. It could be a sinus infection, yo.
