Cure for the common cold

Colds in the UK cost us all so much money and business in the UK. They make you feel drained, unattractive and then increase stress when you do return to work.

So how do you cure colds and flues that effect us all?

Many say fill your self with vitamin C but often it is too late as this is for preventing rather than curing.

Another cure suggested is drinking lots of water to flush the virus out of you. Most people in the UK, and in fact the world do not have enough water in their diet, so the an increase us good, yet it seems hard when you spend the day in bed and don’t want to move.

There are always the normal potions and lotions available, with steaming with olbus oil as a high recommendation from me for clearing everything yucky out. Lemsip brings steaming, pain killers and decongestants together and I can not recommend this enough!

But there is still the constant question of how do stop colds from coming back? With the viruses constantly mutating, we can’t keep up with it. The cold is passed to the next person before they even show symptoms most of the time.

The only way to really stop a cold is how we managed to stop foot and mouth and other more deadly viruses spreading; isolating it. If everyone stayed indoors for for a couple of weeks.

However getting that to actually happen is impossible and will just leave way for other more deadly bugs in.

So for now, while the cold is sucking the life out of me, but I know that it is for the good.

Till then its lemsip time!

Sick Day

Today I am sick, and it sucks! I am not pulling a sickie, and in fact being a very naughty girl and doing a few bits and pieces of work when I should be resting!

There is a lot of controversy over sick days on whether we are taking too few, too many or faking it! I was shocked when googling “Sick day” to find the third option down was a piece on how to pull a sicky! I try as much as possible to not pull a sick day but recently I have been ill twice! While this might not seem like a big deal, it was seen as bad that over the course of 3 months that I had been ill off work for 3 days when I started this job.

Anyway, I should be good and rest so I am well enough for SFX tomorrow (and all the travelling I have to do to get there!)
