There is no science for sweating out your sickness. At least I haven’t taken the time out to do any research on it. Shoot- Google it. There may be studies showing what is better- sweating it out or resting. Either way, I am not one to rest and to sit around enabling my mind to focus on my sickness. That small, temporary boost of serotonin from being active is all I need to get me a few extra hours of feeling great.
This post comes to you because, well.. I don’t feel great today. A small tickle in my throat started in the middle of the night between Monday and Tuesday and I blew it off as nothing. I ran 3 miles yesterday in the middle of the day and being in the sun really did boost my overall sense of well-being, but then towards the end of the day my immune system started to crash, and a before-bedtime-pharmacy-run prevailed. Man, that nighttime alka-seltzer plus stuff really made me sleep like crap. And yes, I am not blaming my sickness, I am blaming the medicine. Ironic.
I am one stubborn person, and no matter what illness I may be facing I just cannot sit still. I would like to know what you all do to get you through your toughest days. Please- comment or write me a personal message. I’d love to hear what works for you.
And- to anyone disappointed in the fact that it is only Wednesday- maybe this video will give you some inspiration to rise and shine and to keep moving.
