Sick?

So many of my friends and family members are sick, including myself. Ewwwwwwww!

Here are my favorite sick remedies I am currently using to make my cold go away faster…

Tea:
I have no desire to drink coffee so I’m forcing myself to drink tea. My favorite is Yogi tea. I love the little quotes on every tea bag so cute!
I’m not sure if this actually works but it tastes good!
Vitamin C: maybe it’s a mental thing but I feel like Emergen-C really helps get rid of a cold faster than anything else I’ve tried Each the box comes with little packets of this fizzy drink mixMix it up with 1/2 cup of water and chug!
Pseudoephedrine: My ENT told me to take this over the counter medicine which is a nasal decongestant. Wow, I feel like an entirely different person. This stuff works WONDERS! Unfortunately, this is also the stuff that drug addicts use to make crystal meth… gross.
Which makes it total pain for us normal people who are sick and need it to cure our sniffles.
Make sure you have your ID with you if you buy this, you will also have to sign an agreement as well. Such a PITA but worth it!

Humidifier:  Thanks Mom and Dad for donating this humidifier to me… aka I kind of took this from their house whoops
Why does a humidifier help your nasty cold?

  • it relieves you from a cough, cold, itchy throat while soothing dry itchy skin and throat
  • it reduces dust particles and kills  bacteria
  • it moisturizes your respiratory system which makes it easier for you to breathe
  • it relieves STATIC… my favorite feature of the humidifier!

Walgreen’s, Walmart, and Target sell humidifiers for affordable prices, or you can “borrow” one from your parents :-)
Breathe Right Strips:They make your nose look like the size of Texas but who cares, these totally help! I wear one to bed every single night when my nose is stuffy and I’ve become obsessed with these miracle workers. Don’t be shy and try them for yourself, they make a huge difference!
Other Tips:

  • get AT LEAST 7 hours of sleep per night, if not more
  • cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze
  • wash your hands

 For those of you who are fighting a terrible cold or flu, I hope you feel better soon!
To everyone else, STAY AWAY…
