#260 Getting the flu over the holidays

Getting the flu is never a fun experience. And it only gets worse as you get older. Remember the 24-hour flu you use to get when you were a kid? You stayed home from school for the day, watched cartoons, drank some chicken soup and slept a little here and there. Then, poof, it was gone. Fast forward about thirty-or-so years and that flu is hanging on. Prepare yourself for three weeks of a runny nose, cough and a head cold that will make you feel like you’ve got teeny tiny bugs rummaging through the internal matter of your brain. Not good. I agree. It especially sucks when you have no choice but to go to work and push through until you collapse. However, when it’s the holidays and you’ve taken the week off work anyway, you are free to lay in pajamas on the couch, watch old romantic comedies and eat chicken soup to your hearts content. Sure, it’s the holidays and you’re on lockdown. But when it’s minus fifteen degrees outside, are you really going anywhere anyway? You now have an excuse to stop rushing around to get things done, and have the time to take care of your body, mind and soul. And THAT CHANGES EVERYTHING!
