Cold cuts

by | Jan 11, 2013

I’m sick.  I’ve been pretending like I wasn’t, but, finally, this morning, I gave in and canceled all my plans for the day, lied down on the sofa, and spent the entire day sipping hot tea with honey, knocking back meds, and blowing my nose.

I thought I was taking such good care of myself—and maybe I was—but I could have been better.  I just read this and realized I was skipping quite a few of the preventative steps, especially the exercising.  I eat well enough, but it really is so important, for me, anyway, to get outside and get some exercise.  At the very least, I could have taken a 30-minute walk each night this week, but I opted to stay indoors instead.

How do you beat a cold?  How do you try to stay healthy?  Please share your helpful hints or articles with me.  It’s never too late to start over.
