The Perfect Sick Day

Waking up to find you are sick is the most unpleasant feeling, especially when you know you have so much to do.  For these specific sick days only, I will encourage the “I don’t want to anything today” behavior and will also give you tips on how to have the perfect sick day.

  • Wake up early (so you have time to take mini naps throughout the day).
  • Have a huge cup of tea with honey.
  • Create your throne on the couch with pillows and blankets galore.

  • Make sure people are aware of your unwell nature through social networking to receive sympathy calls, texts and the occasional gifts.
  • Watch Marry Poppins ( It is my tradition to watch this movie every time I am home sick and it immediately makes me feel better).
  • Take a nap.
  • Wake up and have more tea with honey.
  • Watch your favorite Johnny Depp movie.
  • Take another nap.
  • Wake up and have more tea with honey.
  • Listen to your favorite artist’s album (but don’t sing along, don’t want to hurt our throats).
  • Begin to read a book.
  • Fall asleep in the middle and take another nap.
  • Wake up and have more tea with honey.
  • Finish the book.
  • Make yourself soup.

  • Watch Forrest Gump.
  • Have one more cup of tea with honey.
  • Take a shower.
  • Go to sleep.

See how productive this sick day actually is?  I came up with 20 things to do in one day without requiring much movement of the body.  Try this and you will actually enjoy yourself and be grateful that you “had to” give up your busy life for a day.  Happy Sick Day!
