sick day essentials

sick day essentials

Although this post is titled sick day essentials, it should really be "sick week". I seem to have caught the cold that is sweeping across the midwest and let me tell you....it is miserable. 

I wish I was exploring my new neighborhood in Chicago this week, but I haven't left the my building except to walk the short block to Walgreens. Whenever I'm feeling sick there are a few items that make me feel better:

Vicks VapoRub - The best product to clear any congestion.
Netflix  - Can you imagine if we had Netflix growing up? Staying home sick from school would have been so much more appealing! Send your TV show recommendations my way!
Ugg slippers - God's gift to women. 
Yogi tea - I love the Raspberry Passion flavor but would love to try their cold season teas. 
Orange Gatorade - A childhood staple. 

What are your go-to essentials when you're sick? I'm taking any and all recommendations!
