The Schnubbs guide to staying healthy

One of my flat mates is sick this week. This is strange because he’s normally very healthy. But I guess everyone stumbles from time to time. I’m happy to say that I’ve never been sick for more than a day in all my tiger years.

The reason I’m such a healthy little tiger is because I follow the great advice my mumma Schnubbs gave me as a little cub. Here’s my tips for staying healthy:

  1. As soon as you feel a germ hit (eg a cold or flu) immediately stop and rest
  2. Drink plenty of water
  3. Take some cold & flu tablets (eg Codral or Sudafed)
  4. Get to sleep as early as you can that night
  5. Eat lots of soups, especially those with vegetables
  6. Use Aloe Vera tissues – they are much kinder on your nose
  7. Take it easy – read some light fiction or a magazine (eg I read Stunt Man Monthly)
  8. Have a hot shower when you get up and before you go to bed (the steam helps clear out the sinuses)
  9. Wear new clean clothes each day (don’t be wearing the same germ infested shirt from yesterday)
  10. Don’t feel guilty about having to relax – this is a big one (most high achievers try to work while they are sick and just end up prolonging the symptoms)
  11. Think positive – focus on things that make you happy. Laughing at a comedy sometimes helps (other times it can just give you a bad cough!)

Here’s a few pictures of me and Wesley helping look after my flat mate:
