Not feeling well?
This week I was not feeling well on Monday. I had a cough, runny nose and sore head. So I left and headed home. On the way I stopped at the Doctor’s office and made an appointment for the next day. All in all there was nothing seriously wrong with me. The Doctor advised me that it was viral and rest was the best cure. So what was I to do?
Normally, when a little under the weather, I battle on and push through…. But is that the best option? Do I perform at a good level in this state? Do I do myself justice for my recovery if I push on? This time I took some time to rest and it was good to do so. I found that even on Thursday I was not feeling the best. However the rest was good on the body, mind and soul.
Being able to rest was very good on the recovery. I am glad that I scaled back my schedule for the week and rested. I know too often I feel that I have to push on…. But you know what, over the last week I have discovered there is very little that falls apart when I am not a work. Bottom line is I can take the unexpected time off and rest.
- What do you do when you are sick?
- Do you feel that you need to push on?
- Or do you take time to rest?
