Things I like when I'm ill ...

Hey everyone :)

I'm ill ... I have a cough and sore throat and a headache ... so here are some of the things I like to use/do/eat/drink when I'm ill.

Cup a Soup
I love a good pot of homemade soup but if I'm really under the weather then cup a soups are amazing too!

Tropicana Orange Juice (with Bits)
I used to hate orange juice with bits but now I love it. Orange juice is full of vitamin C so helps to fight the infection of the cold.

Water is amazing and has so many benefits - one being that it can flush out toxins in the body. So I always drink lots of water when I get ill so I can hopefully 'flush' out the cold from my body.

I like things to numb or soothe my throat and so Soothers are a great choice - there are alternatives like Halls or Strepsil lozenges - but they all work the same to stop that tickle or sore jaggy throat.

When I'm ill I love my bed and lots of napping. So that is a big comfort for me.

There's nothing more better than snuggling up in bed with a cup of tea or soup and binge watching your favourite television programme while your ill. I can say that I have caught up with lots of my programmes while I've been ill and resting.

What do you do when your ill? Let me know in the comments below!
