Sick Day Tea Remedy

As luck would have it, just as I was getting comfortable with my daily routine of work, school, gym and sleep, I got sick. Everyone at work and school is currently sick, so I suppose getting sick was inevitable. Still, it’s a pain to have to reschedule meetings, deadlines and Skype calls because of a non-stop dry cough and the chills.

Since the bug has been making its rounds, I’ve decided to share with you all a sick day tea recipe that a friend shared with me last November when I was sick last.

You will need:
3 cups of water
1 cinnamon stick
1/2 of a lemon, juiced
1/2 tbsp. of tumeric
1/4 tsp. of cloves
1 pinch of cayenne pepper
3 slices of fresh ginger
1 1/2 tsp. of honey

The directions:
Add all the ingredients except for the honey into a pot and bring the pot to a boil. Once the mixture is boiling, turn the heat down to simmer and let it sit for 10 minutes. Strain the mixture into a tea pot, add the honey to the liquid mixture, and drink it while it’s still hot.

If you’re sick, don’t forget to stay home (everyone will thank you for doing so!), keep hydrated, wash your hands regularly, and get plenty of rest. I know it’s tough, especially at the start of the year to slow down and take time off of your commitments, but your body will thank you for it. If you have any other sick day remedies to share with me, feel free to leave them in the comments section down below or tweet me @pandamoniumpink.

Keep smiling,
Kels
