Sick Day Survival Kit

So I’ve been dealing with a head cold this week and I’ve been miserable.  I’ll admit it, I’m kind of a bear when I get sick and nothing makes me crankier than having a cold.  Aches, pains, chills, fever, sneezing, running nose, watery eyes.  Ugh.  Needless to say it’s been a long week.  The minute I get sick I usually head to the drugstore to pick up a few essentials to get me through it:

First off, Ombra Spa Aromatic Foam Bath in Eucalyptus (it must be Eucalyptus).  I’m a bath lover at the best of times, but when I’m sick, nothing feels better than soaking my aching limbs in a hot bubble bath.  The eucalyptus in this really helps clear my sinuses too.

Secondly, Nyquil Cold & Flu.  I always take a dose of this about a 1/2 hour before I head to bed and it usually knocks me out cold.  Sleep is obviously super important in kicking the cold to the curb but I often either a) can’t breathe because I’m so stuffed up or b) can’t get my nose to stop running.  This helps!

Thirdly, good old Vaseline!  I usually rub my nose raw wiping it with Kleenex, so I keep a tub of this next to my bed and apply it on and around my nose regularly.  Helps avoid a dry and peeling nose.

Other essentials: thick and super soft tissues (any with lotion work really well), Sucrets cough drops (numb throat = bliss!),  and of course the basics: peppermint tea with honey, chicken soup and lots of liquids!

Lastly, soft cozy pi’s are a must!  Love these from Victoria Secret:

Wishing everyone a great weekend!
