Sick days cheatsheet

Or how to help my tired cloudy mind Published on thought

I am not sure what is happening to me, but since about a year, I get sick much more severely than before. A common cold can lead to exhaustion, strong headaches and nausea.

As it is happening more and more often, here is a list of the things I personally do to help me feel better (in no particular order).

For the immune system

For a sore throat

For a congested nose

For nausea

To prevent sinusitis

I have a sensitive nose that easily transforms an inoffensive cold into full-fledged sinusitis. Here are ways to prevent it:


  1. Always make sure to store some porridge in the freezer!

  2. Essential oils: 1 drop lavender, 1 drop peppermint 2

  3. Preboil 3/4 cup water and let it cool down, mix in 1 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp baking soda. You can keep this solution for a week. 2

  4. Inhale through nose to a count of three, hold breath to a count of three, then exhale to a count of three
