Accepting (And defeating) Sickness

Hey style choicers! I feel so unhealthy at the moment! My body is really good at avoiding bugs, viruses, etc, but lately, I've been not great at all! Between my knee a few weeks ago, a cold up until last Tuesday, and now, I have the flu! I've had to try and make sure that my illnesses don't bring me down, so I've been trying to keep positive, and everyone gets sick sometimes, so I'll be giving you my tips on how to keep a smile on your face, even when you body isn't so great!

  • Listen to your body! If your body is telling you that you need sugar (You'll know this if you start getting the shakes when you aren't cold), go get a bar of chocolate are something, even if you're on a diet! If your body needs some medicine, no matter how horrible it is, just take it! (Don't deny it, even adults hate their medicine!)
  • Rest. Sometimes it's not the best idea to take off work or have a day off school, but if you really know that you aren't well enough to leave the house, spend the day in bed or snuggled up on the couch, and don't push yourself to do anything physical, but if it's a cold or a headache, and you think you should go to work/school, then bring medicine, keep yourself positive, and when you get home, treat yourself to some relaxation.
  • Visit a docter. Sometimes, we can be so afraid to see a docter, no matter how old we are, because we're scared. Most of the time, we don't have a reason to be scared at all, we're just scared. If you know that you really need to see a doctor though (If you've been like that for more than 4 days) then go! Don't think "Whats the worst that can happen?" because then your mind will think up all these horrible things. Think "Whats the best that can happen?" and the answer is: The doctor will give you some medicine that you can take which will make you feel better!
  • Keep yourself thinking positive. Don't sit there thinking about how horrible you feel, just remind yourself that everyone has these times, and soon, it'll pass over!

Now whether your sick or not, when you are, just come back to this post and read it over so you can still be happy, even when your body disagrees!

Thanks for reading! ♥

  1. I have found that even when I drink soda with caffeine in it, it still makes me tired. So I'm trying to drink less soda now.

    I'm really good at not getting sick too. One thing that can help a lot is keeping a little travel sized bottle of hand sanitizer in your purse or backpack. Bath and Body Works even makes them in scents that smell like chocolate chip cookies!
