Take Medicine | Whether you like to take over the counter medicine or are a herbal tea lady, take some sort of medicine to help you get back on your feet quickly. I personally strive off of extra vitamins, lots of water, and a good nights sleep!
Hydrate | Drink lots of water, a glass of juice here and there, and some Pedialyte! Pedialyte is my go-to when I’m sick because it helps re-hydrate you and make sure you have all the necessary vitamins in your system to fight your illness even when you’re not feeling well enough to eat!
Don’t Procrastinate | Get your stuff done during the day even though it might be a little difficult to get in the mood to do it. It’ll eliminate the stress and allow for extra rest.
Make Yourself Shower | Getting out of bed, showering, and being a little more active makes me feel way better than I do when I lay in bed all day, no matter how tired and sick I feel. It makes me feel like a normal person (and allows me to snapchat while laying in bed all day).
Cute Pajamas | When you’re sick and lounging around, why not pull on a cute pair of pajamas to cheer yourself up? I usually pick out my cute penguin pajama shorts (the girls have hair bows and the boys have bow ties!) and a comfy long sleeve t-shirt!
Whether you handle being sick the same way as I or not, don’t forget not to push yourself too much. Your professors will understand if you take a day or two off from classes to rest up!
