Under the Weather

I've been fighting a cold all week, and have spent much of my time strategically surrounded by Kleenex, tea, cough drops, Sudafed, and every remote control I own. I've allowed myself to take a few sick days, even though there's no official process for that since I work from home. While it doesn't feel good to feel bad, I admit I have enjoyed the time of rest.

Being sick is a giant pain, an inconvenience, a headache--both literally and figuratively--but it can also signal that it 's time to take a breath and let yourself rest. I'm trying not to worry about the deadlines that are approaching and all the work that is standing undone. I suspect that trying to juggle all these concerns in the first place is part of what led me toward my current illness, and while the temptation is there to just push through it, my instinct is telling me it will only make matters worse.

Whether you're feeling at the top of your game, or a little under the weather yourself, don't forget to take time to think about your health, and most importantly, how your lifestyle impacts your health.
