How to Be a Sexy Sickie

Lauryn Evarts, fitness blogger, health blogger, and diet blogger talks skinny tips and tricks for weight loss.

Annnnndddddd Pilates didn’t end up happening today.

Way, way too sick.

I’ve been a real nightime sniffling, sneezing, coughing, aching, stuffy-headed, fevered bitch.

But thanks to my babe + some TLC I’m feeling like I’m headed ( slowly ) towards recovery.

So. Since everyone & their dog, dad, sister, cousin, mom, friend, neighbor is currently sick, here’s some tips on how to get well ASAP…

How to Be a Sexy Sickie

1.} Tea (duh): chug it like it’s diamond water. I like Throat Coat, green tea, & Sleepytime Extra tea.

2.} Wash your freaking hands: isn’t it swell when someone comes to the gym/work/your house, sick? Oh & then they sneeze on their hand & extend it for a shake. Like, no thanks, I’d prefer not to grasp your sick-o, germ-infused, wet hand. Wash your hands peeps! Kill those germy little bitches ( love this all natural soap! ).

3.} Use a Neti Pot: haven’t heard of it? It’s absolutely, positively amazing. This little pot provides relief for any cold or allergy symptoms.

4.} Pillows: plump those babies up so the head is elevated. This alleviates pressure from the sinuses.

5.} Shower. Please. Just shower: don’t be lazy. Force your sick-ass out of bed. I swear, you will feel soooo much better. The hot water helps soothe any cold &/or sore throat. And the heat drains any gross mucus.

6.} Don’t reach for chemicals: I’m not a big pill popper. You know the type: “oh I have a headache so I’m going to take three Advil.” I like to try natural approaches before I shove pills down my throat. If you need some meds, try Cold-EEZE.

8.} Water: hydration is key. Water allows your bod to rid sickie toxins.

9.} Make your man do everything: being sick is a great time to make your significant other do everything. Kidding! Kind of.

10.} Relax: this is so F’ing hard for me. I’m always on the go, so laying in bed is as about as interesting as watching a fly on the wall. I’ve been reading a bunch of sexy autobiographies so the time’s flying by. US Weekly is a real lifesaver too. Sleep as much as you can. Getting some shut eye heals the body better than anything. ZZZzzz.

If you’re not sick, I’m jealous.

On that note, I’m off to bed.

I’m big on sleep. This doesn’t mean I’ll sleep-in till noon & waste the day away, but it’s definitely a priority to get those eight hours [ at least ] in. Sleep allows sore muscle to recover, heals the body, & provides energy. When you’re walking around like a dead zombie, you’re bound to reach for sugar-filled crap, sodas, and/or greasy foods to sustain the day. Also, lack of sleep slows the metabolism down [ eww!!- click here for more info ]. Studies show that if you snooze for five hours a night & decide to change it up to eight, you’ll drop some major lb’s. So go grab some Sleepytime Tea & hit the sack. ZZZZzzzzzzz.
