Back to school germs have got the best of me this week. Or maybe it was the filth and grime I breathed in while cleaning out three kids bedrooms and closets this weekend (we’ve only lived here a year, HOW do they accumulate so much dirt?). Whatever the cause, I have been suffering since Sunday. It’s only Wednesday, not that long, but too long when you’re me. Or when you are you. Ain’t nobody got time to be sick. Our plates our full, our lives continue whether we are sick or well, and we have to either keep up or check out.
Today I finally “called in” sick. It is hard to call in sick when you work from home. Earlier this week, I shuffled along in my sweats and slippers and worked with my head on my desk and used tissues littering the floor. Pretty. Today, though, I hit a new low and had to call in to check out and take a midday nap. I woke refreshed and marginally recovered and went back to work, shuffling back out to my desk in my slippers, kicking tissues out of the way.
There are probably many factors to my recovery upswing, including time, ibuprofen and acetaminophen, and sleep, but I am attributing my overall feeling-betterness to Yogi Tea. Not just any Yogi Tea, specifically Cold Season, Throat Coat, Echinacea Immune Support and Deep Breathe organic herbal teas. This collection of teas contains common and atypical ingredients from cinnamon, astragalaus, eucalyptus, yarrow flower, peppermint, mullein, cardamom seed, thyme leaf, wild cherry bark, slippery elm bark and tulsi leaf. A wild combination that work. I don’t promote many products, if any, but these Yogi Teas get my full endorsement.
My throat was sore and raw from lovely postnasal drip. Once cup of throat comfort tea and the effect was noticeably better. I rotate through the collection each day, enjoying a good, hot cup of tea with a purpose. My chest congested, Breathe Deep, to the rescue.
As day 4 of my malady comes to an end, I can breathe, I can hear, my body and head ache less and my cough is sporadic. My voice is still pretty haggard and my energy is low but, as stated earlier, I’m on the upswing.
Before you find yourself combatting back to school germs or the affects of wild dust bunnies, I highly recommend you stock up on Yogi Teas – Cold Season, Breathe Deep, Echinacea Immune Support and Throat Coat.
This concludes my old lady illness gripes and product promotional tour. [cough] [sneeze] I need a cup o’ Yogi Tea.
