Sick Day essentials

sick day essentials

I’m always really confused when I get sick. I mean, I live in California, the land of perpetual sunshine and 70 degree weather and especially since I don’t work in an office every day (aka germ infestation central), it’s odd that I would catch a bug. Well I woke up yesterday morning feeling like absolute crap; dry, scratchy throat, stuffed sinus’, watery eyes…sure, it could be the Santa Ana winds but regardless, I feel awful. Over the years I’ve developed these go-to’s for a good sick day, if that’s not a complete oxy-moron.

Decaf green tea

Sudafed PE Pressure + Pain

Cashmere sleep mask
