Prior to having kids a case of the snuffles warranted being tucked up in bed, with a hot soothing drink, a decent film, a large sized tissue box and someone to run around after you bringing restorative chicken soup, a magazine or the tub of menthol rub when you need it! Now you just have to suck it up! If you’re ill, its just tough you have little people to take care off now, no shirking your responsibilities in favour of a quick nap, especially my two they have sooo much energy!
So frankly it’s easier just to stay well in the first place, but with the bombardment of germs children insist on sharing (school is a breeding ground of coughs, colds and heaven knows what else!) that can be tricky. I know getting a decent nights sleep can help, along with a good diet with plenty of fruit and vegetables and lots of water to drink. But I do not have the best habits, I blog late into the night, burning myself out, but finding it the only way to keep on top of things and I eat far too much cake!
So I need something I can do easily that will just slot into my daily routine. Vitamin supplements look like the easiest option. I mean how hard is it to take a quick tablet. I can feel like I am doing something useful to perk me up then, as long as no one ever expects me to pronounce what I am taking! Pycnogenol, Selenium and Ubiquinol all sound quite a mouthful but if it means I have happy healthy cells then what the heck I am all for popping the supplements.
Whilst I am at it hubbie could do with some more life in him. His new job is quite full on, so he could do with a boost to his immune system. I wonder what I can encourage him to take. Although I have no plans for the B-Daddy product, after two children I have done my bit and do not want any help making more little darlings.
