Be Well!

Man…it’s going around! There are so many people sick. Colds, flu, step throat…I am finally getting over the world’s clingiest cold. Ugh! Sore throat, aches, post nasal drip and nighttime hacking. I completely lost my voice for about 4 days. Today I finally feel pretty good. I did my first workout since getting sick, and it hurt. Getting back into the swing is always tough. Especially after sickness, fatigue, dehydration, and not eating right.

Everyone has their own home remedies for soothing the sick body. One thing that always makes me feel better is a wellness tea recipe a fitness friend gave to me years ago. If you have any sort of ache, snotty nose, or sore throat, give this a try! (Bonus, it’s actually really delicious!)be well 2

Because I am still breastfeeding, I couldn’t take any over the counter cold medicines. (Sometimes you need medicine… and some yoga, and some essential oils, and some sleep!) So I cared for myself the old-fashioned way. Hydration and rest! When my baby napped, so did I. I drank lots of water, upped my vitamin D intake, took steam showers, tried to eat what I could stomach (it was oatmeal for me!), went for walks to get fresh air, washed my hands, and avoided being around people so I didn’t infect them. The cold lasted a while, but these things helped ease the pain.

What are some of your feel better tricks?
Be Well!
Your Trainer,
