Going through the muck

Sometimes, when you start to feel like you’re coming down with something, there are things you can do to ward it off.

  • Rest more.
  • Get to the ocean and breathe the salt air.
  • Drink healing teas (I like Traditional Medicinals line, especially Throat Coat and Gypsy Cold Care, but watch out for sensitivities to ingredients) with some honey.
  • A teaspoon of honey by itself here and there can be helpful, too.

But sometimes, despite your best efforts… you

Can’t go over it.
Can’t go under it.
Can’t go around it.
Gotta go through it. 

(From The “Going on a Lion Hunt” song)

In that case, break out the chicken soup. You can make your own, even if you are sick, pretty quickly and easily. Some chicken broth, leftover cooked chicken if you have it, pastina, carrots, a tablespoon or so of tomato paste, a clove of garlic (that you can leave whole and take out before you eat it).

You can do it.

And then get back on the couch.
