sicky’s sidekicks

Somewhere around 2 or 3 AM the night before a job interview, I awoke with a very scratchy throat & swollen glands. I immediately reached for a cup of Celestial Seasonings Echinacea Complete Care Wellness tea…aka “Magic Tea.” I swear that this stuff will either prevent a cold, or greatly reduce the duration/severity if you begin drinking it as soon as you feel that tickle, sniffle, or ache start. My other go-to remedy is an endless cup of hot water with a lemon slice. After several cups of the aforementioned tea yesterday, I spent the evening recuperating in front of the gas fireplace with my lemon water & a great book. I slept extremely well & already feel much better this morning.

If you, like almost everyone I know, has picked up this bug, I highly recommend trying all of the above. You’ll be back to 100% in no time.
