How do I avoid becoming sick… and what do I do when I do get sick?

how to prevent a full blown coldIt's the season of colds. Why? Because the weather is changing and unless you change with it, you are screwed.

In evolutionary terms the two capacities/behaviors that almost guarantees survival are awareness and changeability.

Yesterday I violated both.

I have had this cold lurk inside for for six weeks now, and when I woke up yesterday and had signs of sore throat, I opted to drink my tea, instead of spraying my throat with my throat remedy.

By early afternoon I was chilled. Then I opted to finish my Duolingo exercise, instead of going to bed and get well.

Seven hour later I was already sick. Sneezing, blowing my nose, headache.

Oy, not good.

So I went to bed and did what I should have done at 2 pm: cover my head, put the heating pad in the bed with me, and do nothing but intend to get well.

One of my motivators was "looking good"...

After all I blast my friends that don't do what they are supposed to do... lol.

By 1 am I was symptom free, but I still slept with the heating pad on.

I muscle tested myself at my regular wakup time, and the muscle test said OK to get up.

But an hour later I had chills again, and a scratchy feeling in my windpipe... oy... not good.

So I went back to bed, heating pad, cover head, wait until the symptoms go away: coincides with even my hands becoming warm.

Then I remembered the Hydrogen Peroxide trick: spray it in the ear, and let it bubble for a few minutes, spray it in the other ear...

What does that do?

Well, I am not sure. It surely kills bacteria in the ears. But I think it does more... The popping sound is like a trumpet calling the white blood cells to battle. And battle they came.

It's 11 am. I will probably repeat this whole sequence of things: bed, and Hydrogen Peroxide regimen a few more times today.

I am staying aware. The time I lose today is maybe 3, maybe 4 hours. Getting sick means losing days. Simple accounting... Right?

Want to know what that special product I started to use is? Comment and I'll email you with the answer and a link.
