I've been fighting a cold, mostly sinuses this past week. I've mostly felt it in the mornings and then feel fine later in the day. This weekend it wanted to hang out with me all day, and be my friend, but I'm determined that this cold and I are not going to be friends.
I had a bad sinus headache yesterday and I should have stayed home from church to rest, but I didn't, though I left early in the afternoon.
I've been fighting it by taking Echinacea with Vitamin C, which I am continuing to do and I am diffusing peppermint oils as well, to open up my sinuses.
That is working because I've been using the Neti pot and my sinuses are not clogged up, for which I am thankful.
I also am resting, other than taking Rachel to work, drinking hot tea and lots of other fluids. I'm eating well, and staying away from sugar. I'm also adding probiotics to my daily routine, since such a huge part of our immune system is dependent on our healthy gut flora.
I'm thankful that I can take the time I need to rest, which is important when your body is fighting something.
I'm also going to be enjoying these beautiful roses. I purchased this plant at Terrain on Saturday while I was out shopping with my daughters. More on that upcoming.
