MY SICK DAY ESSENTIALS


HELLO Y'ALL, SO IT'S THAT TIME AGAIN--- NO, I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT PERIODS HAHAHA BUT IT'S GETTING COLDER AND IT SEEMS LIKE EVERYONE GETS SICK. WELL NOT FOR ME AT LEAST WHEN I FEEL LIKE A COLD IS COMING OR IF I AM SICK THESE ARE WHAT I TURN TO. AFTER A DAY OF REST AND TAKING THESE THINGS, I'M BETTER. EVER SINCE I COULD REMEMBER I'VE ALWAYS BEEN THE ONE TO BE SICK BUT ONCE I BECOME AWARE OF MORE THINGS AND AFTER GOING TO THE ER THINGS HAD TO CHANGE. LIKE FIRST HOW EASY I WAS LETTING AS SIMPLE AS A COLD/FLU GET TO ME BUT THEN I WAS LIKE, NO COLD/FLU YOU ARE NOT GOING TO BEAT ME! I LOVE TAKING NATURAL REMEDIES! GOD GAVE US SO MUCH AND I WANT TO USE THE GIFTS HE GIVES US TO HEAL OUR BODIES, NATURALLY. GROWING UP MY MOM WOULD GIVE US AT THE TIME WEIRD NATURAL REMEDIES BUT HEY THEY ALWAYS WORKED SOME WERE SO NASTY THAT WHEN I WOULD GET SICK I'D BE LIKE WHYYYYYY-------BUT OTHERS GOOD OH SO GOOD.
GRANTED SOMETIMES SOME CASES YOU NEED A DOCTOR ASAP BUT SOMETIMES YOU DON'T.
 I HAVE ASTHMA AND I'M ON THE PROCESS OF REVERSING MY ASTHMA-----LIKE CURING MYSELF WITH GOD'S HELP OF COURSE BECAUSE WHEN IT COMES TIME OF A COLD I SOUND LIKE I'VE BEEN SMOKING FOR YEARS AND YEARS. I DON'T SMOKE GROSS EWWW. CAN I JUST SAY THAT I DIDN'T CHOOSE TO HAVE ASTHMA. I JUST GOT IT FROM A WILD FIRE BACK IN MIDDLE SCHOOL BUT AS I'VE GOTTEN OLDER AND MORE TIME TO READ AND BE MORE AWARE OF MY SURROUNDINGS, I KNOW NOW THAT I CAN GET RID OF ASTHMA. I CHOOSE TO MAKE THE EXCUSE OF I HAVE ASTHMA. IT SUCKS HAVING IT BECAUSE IT'S SO HARD TO BREATHE AT TIMES ESPECIALLY GOING UP HILLS AND IT HURTS BECAUSE I LOVE GOING HIKING BUT I STILL GO BECAUSE I'VE BEEN TOLD IT HELP YOURS LUNGS GET STRONGER. IT MIGHT SEEM LIKE I DON'T LIKE TO HIKE BECAUSE I LOVE TO EAT AND BE COZY BUT I'M AN ADVENTUROUS PERSON. ONE DAY I'LL RUN UP HILLS WITHOUT MY LUNGS HURTING OR WITHOUT NEEDING AN INHALER (WHICH I STOP TAKING FOR ABOUT FOUR YEARS NOW,SO MANY CHEMICALS).
I KNOW IT'S A LITTLE OFF TOPIC BUT IF YOU HAVE A GUY OR GAL WHO MAKES SURE YOU GET BETTER. FOR EXAMPLE, GO OUT OF THERE WAY OUT OF THEIR BUSY SCHEDULE TO BRING YOU SOUP ETC, BE EVER SO GRATEFUL! THAT ENCOURAGES YOU THAT YOU WILL GET BETTER INSTEAD OF MAKING FUN OF YOU. I HAD AN EX THAT MADE FUN OF ME BECAUSE I NEEDED TO TAKE A COUPLE BREAKS GOING UP A HILL BECAUSE I WAS IN PAIN FROM NOT BEING ABLE TO BREATHE AND TOOK OFF AND LEFT ME ALONE. TO BE HONEST, IT WAS LIKE A STAB IN THE HEART AND I CRIED GOING DOWN HILL JERK YUP. 

LET'S MOVE ON IT SUCKS THAT THESE DAYS MOST MEDICINES DON'T HEAL YOU INSTEAD EITHER MAKE THINGS WORSE OR COVERS UP FOR A WHILE AND YOUR SICK AGAIN. ALSO SUCKS THAT MOST DOCTORS NOT ALL, BUT MOST CARE ABOUT MONEY SO THEY GIVE YOU A DRUG THAT DOESN'T REALLY HEAL. HAVEN'T YOU NOTICED THAT THE MEDICINES ON TV ETC SYMTOMS ARE SO LONG AND SAY IF YOUR BLEEDING ETC GO TO ER LIKE DANG I JUST WANT TO GET RID OF A COLD. 
 LIKE THE MOVIE PATCH ADAMS 
" THE PURPOSE OF A DOCTOR OR ANY HUMAN, IN GENERAL, SHOULD NOT BE TO SIMPLY DELAY THE DEATH OF THE PATIENT, BUT TO INCREASE THE PERSON'S QUALITY OF LIFE." -PATCH ADAMS
YEARS AGO A DOCTOR GAVE ME SOME MEDICINE THAT WAS SUPPOSE TO HELP ME TAKE SOMETHING I HAD AWAY INSTEAD, I ALMOST WENT BLIND. NOTE THERE IS SOME GOOD MEDICINE OUT THERE; SO I'M NOT BASHING EVERYTHING BUT AS SIMPLE AS A COLD I PREFER NATURALLY. 
I'M IN NO WAY A DOCTOR IF YOU DO HAVE A SERIOUS PROBLEM DON'T WAIT TO TALK TO A DOCTOR. I'M JUST HERE TO LET YOU KNOW WHAT I HAVE DONE. WE BEGIN TO HEAL WHEN WE ARE AWARE OF HOW WE ARE TAKING CARE OF OURSELVES AND I'M HERE TO ENCOURAGE YOU THAT YOU CAN HEAL FROM ANYTHING IF YOU FOCUS ON THE POSITIVE INSTEAD OF DWELLING ON I'M SICK OR DAMAGED. WITH LOVE, THERE IS ALWAYS A CURE! 


A FEW THINGS BEFORE I SHARE MY ESSENTIALS........
FOCUS ON YOU AND HOW YOUR TAKING CARE OF YOURSELF! 
FIRST IF YOU ARE A BUSY BEE TAKE IT EASY TIME TO TIME. STOP RUSHING
HONESTLY, ABOUT TWO WEEKS AGO I WAS WORKING MY BUTT OFF THAT MY ASTHMA KICKED IN BAD AND MY BODY WAS VERY WEAK BECAUSE I WAS OVER WORKING MYSELF AND STRESSING MYSELF----- I RESTED FOR TWO DAYS DOING NOTHING. IT DIDN'T LITERALLY KILL ME BUT THE THOUGHT OF NOT BEING PRODUCTIVE WAS HURTING ME LOL YUP THATS' HOW MUCH MY BODY NEEDED TO RECOVER AND I DIDN'T EVEN HAVE A COLD/FLU EITHER. THE BODY AND MIND NEEDS SOME REST TOO. TIME TO FOCUS AND RECHARGE. I FINALLY WAS EXCITED TO DO MORE WITH THIS BLOG AND SHARE MY IDEAS. IF YOU ARE LIKE ME LIKE NOPE GOT TO GET IT DONE, LET ME TELL YOU, YOUR HEALTH IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN WHATEVER YOU ARE DOING TRUST ME WITHOUT GOOD HEALTH NOTHING GETS DONE. SO RELAX. IF YOUR SICK GET SOME SLEEP SERIOUSLY THOUGH SLEEP IS GOOD. HAVE YOU EVER HAD YOUR PHONE LAYING OUT IN THE SUN AND IT GETS SO HOT IT SHUTS DOWN WELL I HAVE (I WAS TANNING LOL) WELL YOUR BODY IS LIKE KINDA THE SAME THING. GIVE YOUR BODY SOME REST.
SECOND EXERCISE IS VERY GOOD; YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE AT THE GYM FOR HOURS BUT A LITTLE A DAY EVEN JUST WALKING AROUND IS GOOD. IT WILL ALSO HELP WITH STRESS AND FROM YOU GETTING SICK.
OK NOW FOR MY SICK DAY ESSENTIALS


1) CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP: IF YOU CAN MAKE IT HOMEMADE THE BETTER BECAUSE THE ONES IN THE CANS HAVE SO MUCH SALT, YOU DON'T WANT TO LOOK SICK AND BLOATED DO YOU? NOPE. YOUR PROBABLY LIKE GIRL I'M SICK, WHAT THE? MAKE SOUP.....ARE YOU CRAZY, NOT REALLY LOL BUT YA I DID IT  FIRST JUST TO NOT GET ANYONE ELSE SICK BUT IF YOUR WEAK HAVE SOMEONE MAKE IT FOR YOU OR BRING YOU CHINESE WONTON SOUP OR PHO----GOOD FOR THE SOUL LOL.  I WILL PUT MY RECIPE BELOW.  YOU CAN EVEN MAKE IT OUT OF TURKEY SINCE THANKSGIVING WAS YESTERDAY SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO WAIT FOR THE CHICKEN TO COOK.




2) DETOX BATH: MAYBE YOUR NOT ONE TO BE LAYING IN A BATH FOR 45 MINS BUT HONESTLY IF YOU WANT AND NEED TO GET BETTER FASTER BECAUSE YOUR A MOM AND OR BOSS, THIS IS ONE TO DO AND EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT SICK BUT STRESSED THIS IS THE BATH FOR YOU. I HAVE A VIDEO ON MY YOUTUBE ON HOW TO DO A DETOX BATH IT'S SO EASY AND SUPER CHEAP LESS THAN $10. THE DETOX BATH WELL TAKES AWAY THE TOXINS IN YOUR BODY, IT RELAXES YOU AND YOU SWEAT LIKE CRAZY BUT WHEN YOU HAVE A COLD/FLU YOU NEED TO SWEAT. I FIND THAT WHEN I HAVE A COLD AND I SWEAT I'M GETTING BETTER. AFTER YOU WILL SLEEP LIKE A BABY SAY GOODBYE TO NYQUIL.


3) WATER & TEA: REMEMBER HOW YOUR DOCTOR ALWAYS SAID DRINK LOTS OF WATER/LIQUIDS WHEN YOU WERE SICK. WELL, YUP IN ORDER TO FLUSH OUT THE TOXINS IN YOUR BODY YOU HAVE TO DRINK LOTS OF WATER. IF YOUR LIKE ME NEED A LITTLE FLAVOR IN YOUR WATER DO A DETOX WATER. IT HAS SO MUCH VITAMINS PUT LEMON OR BLUEBERRIES.YOU NEED THOSE VITAMINS. I LIKE WATER WITHOUT THOSE TOO FYI HEHEHE.
TEA IS SOOO GOOD. I LOVE TEA LIKE WHEN I HAVE MY OWN PLACE I'M HAVING A WHOLE SECTION OF DIFFERENT TEAS. ON A DAILY, I DRINK TWO CUPS OF GREEN TEA. SO IF YOU HAVE THAT ONE, DRINK UP! AVOID COFFEE I KNOW YOU CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT IT, BUT YOU DON'T NEED TO BE AWAKE.. YOU NEED REST. I LOVE THESE TEAS WHEN I'M SICK BECAUSE IT HAS LEMON/GREEN TEA/HONEY, THE BEST FOR WHEN YOUR SICK. I DON'T HAVE ANYMORE BUT THIS TEA IS SO GOOD TOO (STASH). IF YOU HAVE ASTHMA-LIKE MYSELF I KNOW HOW HARD IT IS WHEN YOU HAVE A COLD; IT'S LIKE GIVE ME A OXYGEN MASK ASAP OR A CPR FROM A HOTTIE HAHAHA BUT THOSE TWO AREN'T AROUND LOL AT LEAST FOR MYSELF. SO THIS TEA DOES WONDERS BUT NOTE IT IS VERY PUNCHY AKA NOT A GOOD TASTE, I HOLD MY NOSE. THE TASTE AND SMELL IS VERY STRONG, BUT IT HELPS SO MUCH. SO DRINK LOTS OF LIQUIDS MAYBE EVEN A LITTLE TEQUILA HEHEHE JUST A SHOT THOUGH WITH LOTS OF LIMON LOL. BETTER THAN NYQUIL IN MY OPINION.


4) VICKS TISSUES: CHRISTMAS IS NEAR, BUT NO ONE WANTS TO LOOK LIKE RUDOLPH THE RED NOSE REINDEER LOL I LOVE RUDOLPH BUT ONLY CUTE FOR A SHOW OR THE REINDEER ITSELF. HAPPENED TO ME ONCE AND AS MUCH MAKEUP I PUT ON IT WAS A WASTE BECAUSE I KEEP HAVING TO BLOW MY NOSE LOL. SO ONE TIME MY SISTER BOUGHT ME THESE AND I NEVER LOOKED BACK ON REGULAR TISSUES. IT HAS TO GO SOME WHERE LOL BUT DO IT WITH THESE TISSUES. I LOVE THE SMELL AND THEY ARE SOFT AND WHEN I DO USE THESE I GET BETTER FASTER. ALSO I DON'T LIKE VICKS BEING RUBBED ON MY CHEST OR FEET, I CAN'T STAND THE TEXTURE HITTING MY SHIRT AND SOCKS. ALSO THEY ONLY HAVE THESE AT CVS OR WALGREENS NEVER FOUND THEM AT TARGET OR RIDE AID.



5) HONEY & A GARLIC CLOVE: 
I LOVE SWEETS AND TAKING HONEY WHEN I'M SICK IS TASTY AND GOOD FOR THE THROAT AND SINCE I DON'T TAKE PILLS FROM THE DOCTORS OR A DRUG STORE I GET A SMALL GARLIC CLOVE----- YOU'RE PROBABLY LIKE GARLIC GROSS WELL IT'S NOT BAD I TAKE IT LIKE A PILL WASH IT DOWN WITH WATER BUT GET A LITTLE PIECE BECAUSE IT'S NOT A FUN FEELING WHEN IT'S HARD TO SWALLOW. YOU CAN'T TASTE IT AND YOU PROBABLY CAN'T SMELL IT EITHER HAVING A COLD. THESE HAVE SO MANY HEALTH BENEFITS. YOU CAN TAKE THE GARLIC CLOVE AND AFTER YOU HAVE WASHED IT DOWN WITH WATER GET A SPOONFUL OF HONEY AND EAT IT.  GARLIC CLOVE WITHOUT THE SKIN OF COURSE. MAKE SURE YOUR HONEY DOESN'T CONTAIN CORN SYRUP.


 I DIDN'T HAVE THESE PRODUCTS. 
TWO, I HAVE USED AND THE ANOTHER I WANT TO USE, BUT I STILL WANTED TO SHARE.
BUY LYSOL, ANTIBACTERIAL WIPES & HAND SANITIZER
 & DOTERRA/SPAROOM HUMIDIFIER.

SERIOUSLY THE BACTERIAL TRAVELS IN THE AIR SO USE LYSOL AND OR A HUMIFIER, TO KILL THOSE NASTY GERMS. I DON'T HAVE THE HUMIDIFIER BUT I WANT ONE SO BAD IT'S  NATURALLY MUCH BETTER THAN LYSOL BUT SINCE I DON'T HAVE IT I USE LYSOL AND SPRAY EVERYTHING LITERALLY EVERYTHING HAHAHA I DON'T PLAY GAMES WHEN IT COMES TO GERMS I'M A CLEAN PERSON. 
SO IF YOUR FEELING BETTER STILL TAKE WIPES AND HAND SANITIZER TO WORK. DON'T GET SICK AGAIN OR SOMEONE ELSE. WIPE DOWN WHERE YOU WORK THERE ARE GERMS EVERYWHERE AND WITH MOSTLY EVERYONE GETTING SICK BE THE ONE NOT TO GET SICK. #BOSS HAHAHA

ALSO, WASH YOUR HANDS LIKE AS MUCH AS YOU CAN! I TOLD YOU I DON'T PLAY HAHAHA I'M TRYING TO BE A BOSS AND MAKE MY DREAMS COME TRUE I DON'T HAVE TIME TO GET SICK, I'M LIVING LIFE.  SO AGAIN IT STARTS WITH YOU TAKING CARE OF YOU, SO REST AND I HOPE YOU GET BETTER. EVERYDAY I PRAY FOR THOSE WITH ILLNESSES FOR STRENGTH, GOOD HEALTH AND MOST IMPORTANTLY LOTS OF LOVE.  SO SOMETIMES WE DON'T CHOOSE TO GET SICK, BUT WE HAVE A CHOICE TO GET BETTER OR NOT.

DON'T FORGET LIP BALM AND BODY BUTTER SO YOUR SKIN AND LIPS LOOK GOOD TOO.
THESE ARE THE ONES I USE. I LOVE, LOVE THIS BODY BUTTER THE SMELL IS SO AMAZING AND THIS LIPS BALM IS NEW BUT I LIKE IT SO FAR.

FROM MY HEART TO YOURS

WISHING YOU LOTS OF LOVE & SWEETNESS
XOXO
