“When you are sick and tired of being sick and tired, you’ll move on and let Karma do the rest.”
Does the following scenario sound familiar? You wake up with body aches. You’re constantly sneezing or sniffling. You keep sweating and freezing simultaneously.
That’s how I feel now. At first, I was tempted to put a disclaimer and skip today’s post all together. But then I thought, why not write about it?
A while back ago, I had written about the psychological benefits of being sick.
This post follows up on that one but in a much more simpler and informative manner.
You can take several preventive measures to keep from getting sick but once you do, it’s tough to battle. Here are a few tips to make the experience a little less of a nuisance:
Accept it. Once your symptoms start escalating, don’t deny it or lie to yourself that you’re ok. The faster you accept it, the easier it will become to combat it.
Take advantage of it. When we were younger, missing days of school were fun. Apply the same mentality now. If it’s definitive that you can’t go anywhere, take it as a sign to relax and do just that.
Move forward on personal goals. Do you find yourself neglecting your hobbies because of a tight work schedule or other engagements getting in the way? Now’s your chance of getting back on track with them.
There are several more things I could list but the basic idea is to look at everything in a postive manner. If you’re sick, focus on what you can do that you wouldn’t be able to do otherwise.
