Today I feel like I am really dragging! I feel like I have very little energy and am having a tough time focusing. I woke up this morning with a little bit of a sore throat, and a bunch of people at work have been sick. I hope that doesn’t mean that I’m getting sick! Work is getting to that crazy point in the year, so I really would prefer not to be down for the count in the next month or so.
I’m hoping to incorporate a few more fruits and veggies into my diet in the next couple days and get a little extra sleep in an attempt to ward off anything that might be trying to attach my immune system. Any other tips and tricks you might have to battle sickness and fatigue are welcome!
