1. Brew Bigelow Tea: The Big Bang Theory is one of my favorite TV shows, and I've seen every episode of the 10 seasons so far. While there aren't many things that I agree with the main character, Sheldon Cooper, about, one thing that I definitely love that Sheldon is always quoted as saying in the show that anyone who is hurting or feeling under the weather needs to be offered a hot beverage! I definitely agree agree with this statement.
I am a huge tea drinker to begin with, and I drink much more tea than coffee. I have different types of teas that I brew for different things: English Breakfast when I need caffeine in the mornings, peppermint at night, chai lattes at coffee shops, etc. But my #1 go-to tea when I'm feeling under the weather has always been Bigelow Green Tea or Bigelow I Love Lemon Tea.
These two teas from Bigelow are the ideal choice to providing comfort when you're feeling under the weather! They really are an ideal soothing beverage. The I Love Lemon Tea also includes Vitamin C in it, which is perfect for helping your immune system. Even if I am feeling nauseous or congested, sometimes all it takes is a warm mug of tea to add a little bit of comfort to my day.
2. Take a true "sick day." Even if you have stayed home from work, school or other commitments for the day, if you're feeling under the weather, take a "true" sick day! Sometimes I am not very good at this, and I'll be the first to admit! If I have a whole day around my apartment, I'll start cleaning, doing blog work, or other tasks. But if you're not feeling well, then you deserve a whole day to truly unwind and relax. It is the best way to be on the road to recovery, as hard as it may sound!
3. Keep some sick day essentials on-hand: Sickness can hit unpredictably, and sometimes when it does you're not feeling well enough to go out and by all of the things that you need, like tissues, over the counter medicines, cough drops, and of course Bigelow Tea! It's always smart to keep a few of these things on hand during these months especially, so that way should sickness hit, you can at least be a bit prepared!
