On Saturday, there was this overall feeling of 'I'm coming down with something but I can't put my hand on it feeling'. Now, that I'm in bed, and can say it's a cold/possible flu, all the warning signs were there from the beginning! Anyway, besides eating soup and getting lots of rest, I decided to log on and write about why I kind of like sick days.
First, they (for the most part) become no spend days. Not that I try and find something to buy everyday, but I do tend to spend money when I'm out and about. Being home with little to no energy means I am making use of the food and objects I have at home. And if money is spent, it's all for the sake of getting better!
Second, I have an excuse (mainly for myself) for lying around and not doing anything. Most days I'm pushing myself to get this and that done, but today, it's all about resting and getting better. Tomorrow is another day to get it all accomplished.
Third, I get to catch up on all my reading. There are always a few books that I'm working on, and even with setting aside some reading time each day, it's never enough. So, I can dedicate hours and hours to finishing all those books that I've been dying to know how they end.
Even though you might be lying on your bed or couch, feeling miserable, try and find something good out of it all. Maybe you get to finally watch the full season of that show you've been dying to catch up on. Or you get the sleep you've been missing out on the past few weeks! Today is the day!
What do you enjoy doing on sick days?
