Posts Tagged ‘Hot toddy’

   So it’s happened.  I have a cold.  And not just any old cold, a really bad cold.  It could even be described as a “man-cold” … although maybe that’s exaggerating just a tad.

Whatever, it is a seriously kick-ass cold.

Ha ha!  I hear you cry.  Doesn’t she listen to her own advice?  Take her own medicine?  Yes I do, and I did and still, I have a really prolific and productive cold.

So, I can only assume that this cold is meant to be and the best thing I can do is to help myself do it as well as I possibly can.  And that’s what I’ve been doing.  I’ve been dosing myself with hot toddies (Kim’s Secret Hot Toddy Recipe) and homeopathic remedies, drinking gallons of lovely cold water and resting.

And just today I have started to feel really quite excited because I know, when I’ve finished doing this cold, I’m going to feel great.  Because I do trust my body, that it is behaving intelligently and is getting rid of stuff I don’t need as expeditiously as possible.

So, if you too have a cold, do it as well as you can and take heart – you will feel better than you did before you had it when it has run its course.
