With the cold season abound it was only a matter of time before one us came down with something. One of my coworkers who sits right in front of me was sick all week and finally my body gave in and I started to come down with a sore throat on Friday. Alex has been burning the candle at both ends the last half a week and now she is sick as well.
Nobody like being sick, and every time I get sick I question how we haven’t figured out how to prevent it yet. However, I have noticed that since I have started to eat healthier I get sick a lot less then I used to. Other then medicine and rest, the other remedies that I try to stick too are drinking lots of water, getting enough sleep, and continuing to eat healthy.
The last suggestion on that list is something I never would have thought of in the past. When I would be sick I would think chicken soup and that would be it. But if we really are what we eat, then when your body is fighting off a parasite you need all the nutrients that you can get. Alex and I usually eat at least five fruits and vegetables a day, but when I am sick I make an extra point to get as many as I can so I can feel better.
Just remember to take care of yourself, but don’t let being sick keep you from eating right or sticking to your routine.
