What to do when your sick

This morning I woke up, and just didn’t feel good. My stomach felt like it was going to explode, my eyes hurt and my head was aching. I had to stay home to try and get myself better. Though, I can sometimes be painfully boring. Here are some tips I use when I’m stuck in bed all day. 

1. Have a bath 

Depending on how sick you are, having a bath can make you feel so much better. If you are sick like I am today, then throwing up in the bathtub might not work out to well. However, if you feel like you can manage a bath, the befits are huge. For starters, it can warm you up if you feel cold. It can also help you relax your muscles if you feel sore. Mainly, it can just help you relax in general, and help you feel better.

2. Drink water or tea

When I am sick, one of the most common things I do is dehydrate myself. You are supposed to have 8 glasses of water a day, and that doesn’t change when your sick. It may seem hard to gulp down a cold glass of water, so in that case just drink tea. Tea can help flush out toxins and just give you that warm fuzzy feeling inside. 

3. Read a book

If you feel up to it, reading can help pass the time. I would suggest reading over going on your laptop or phone. This is because it relaxes you instead of wakes you up. Sometimes when I am sick, I can get through a whole book in just one day. It distracts me from how bad i feel, which helps me get better.

4. Just sleep

This is kinda obvious, but just try and sleep your sickness off. Sleeping is the quickest way you will get better. If you feel gross, and trying to sleep makes your insides hurt more, just try. When you wake up you will likely feel a lot better.

Anyways those are my tips to get better when your sick. If your feeling under the weather at the moment I truly hope you get better soon. But I’m going to go sleep off this flu so see you next time!
