5. Be kind to yourself
I tend to get angry the moment I get sick and try and figure out what I did to cause it. The truth is that I will never know. Was it because I stayed up too late or was it because I sat next to a sick person on the plane?
It just doesn’t matter why. What does matter is taking care of yourself right now in this moment. I’m not a doctor, but I can pretty much guarantee that beating yourself up will do nothing for you.
What have you been missing in your healthy life? Maybe you can read that book you’ve been wanting to, catch up on a tv marathon, or just soak in a long bath with some lavender and eucalyptus oils.
I’ve done all of those and managed not to beat myself up about not making new recipes this week. It’s been easier for me because I’ve been breaking into a coughing fit if I walk across the room. I’m going to try and remember not to beat myself up about things once I’m healthy again.
