1o Things You Need In The House The Next Time You’re Sick??
That’s random, right?
Well I wish I could say it was random for me, however I’m over here (currently on the couch) sicker than a dog. I have been doing my best to prevent this cold and flu that has so viciously been going around and finally… I guess it was my time.
Let me just say, if you haven’t gotten this lovely illness this year.. consider yourself lucky. This is BRUTAL. On top of that, you all know I’m pregnant. So add that to the mix.. I’m sure you can imagine how pleasant I am to be around these days. Ha!
While sitting here moping and feeling sorry for myself, I’ve come up with a list that everyone needs to go off of before they come down with a cold/and or flu.
KLEENEX image: amazon.com
This is a given, right? Nothing is worse than running out of Kleenex and having to use paper towels to blow your nose. Ugh, your poor nostrils. It feels as if you’re using sandpaper after awhile.
Avoid that and get your pack HERE.
BREATHE RIGHT STRIPSimage: amazon.com
If you’re anything like me when your sick.. you don’t sleep. Usually it’s because I feel like I can’t breathe out of my nose and so I’m forced to breathe out of my mouth the whole night. In return, I always end up with a sore throat. These strips are LIFESAVERS. Trust me. Order them ASAP.
Get them HERE.
Whether I’m suffering from the stomach flu or just a terrible headache, small sips of Gatorade always makes me feel better. Most people would argue this because of all the sugars found in 1 bottle, however I dilute it with water anyways. If you’re against Gatorade, try Pedialyte.
Order some HERE.
Purchase them HERE.
When you’re stuck on the couch, nothing is better than curling up with the coziest blanket you own. This one has fantastic reviews and is insanely affordable.
Check it out HERE.
SOUP image: amazon.com
I think you all can agree with me.. homemade soup would be WAY better when you can barely keep anything down. However when you’re sick on the couch, do you really have energy to whip up some fresh Chicken Noodle Soup? Pick up these and stock them in your pantry. You’ll thank me later.
Find them HERE.
Oh this balm is like Heaven! I use it on my lips when they are chapped, dry and cracked. A natural ointment that heals anything dry on your body. Once you try it, you’ll never use anything else.
Get it HERE.
Keep your feet warm and invest in some cozy socks. Just like with the blanket, you’ll want to make sure you’re most comfortable while you’re trying to shake this illness.
Find some good ones HERE.
SALTINES image: amazon.com
ALWAYS.. I repeat.. ALWAYS have Saltines in your pantry. They are a must when your nauseous and/or vomiting. Even if you aren’t sick, who doesn’t like to snack on these things?
Pick up a big pack HERE.
