5 Drinks To Fight The Dreadful Fever
When you’re fighting off a fierce fever you might be tempted to indulge in some of your favorite drinks such as coffee, soda or even some form of alcohol. Any of those choices are very, very bad ideas. To cure your fever faster and make the symptoms you’re suffering from less severe, you need to ingest the things that will make you feel better, not worse. For that reason, you need to take a look at these five kinds of drinks that have the ability to fight off the fever.

    2. Tea

      There have been a number of benefits shown for drinking tea instead of coffee by both science and personal experience. One of the less discussed benefits of the drink is how hot or cold tea can successfully treat a fever. The combination of some hydration with just the right amount of caffeine means that you’ll get a nice jolt. Even better is that tea is extremely easy to make. All you have to do is boil a tea bag that you might even already have in your home in hot water for a few minutes. While every kind of tea has some vitamins that will help you deal with your fever, linden flower tea is especially effective against a fever.

      3. Fruit Juice

        Fruit juice is by no means an effective way to lose weight, but it should be a help when you’re suffering from a fever, since it has so many of the nutrients that are essential for good health. Orange juice, in particular, stirs the digestive system and is likely to make you urinate, which causes you to naturally remove toxins from your body. Orange juice doesn’t even need a recipe! You should just make sure that it is as natural and freshly squeezed as possible if you want it to make a positive impact.

        4. Apple Cider Vinegar

          Apple Cider Vinegar has a number of benefits. That it can successfully fight a bad fever is just one of its advantages. To fight the fever you can do something as simple as sipping on some Apple Cider Vinegar once an hour or something as unique as taking a bath made up of hot water and one cup of Apple Cider Vinegar! Either way, you’ll probably feel better afterwards. Here are some recipes.

          5. Water

            As much as other liquids can do to help you fight the fever, nothing is ultimately more effective than plain old H2O. During a fever, water is drained from your cells due to your temperature. You might also be sweating a lot, throwing up or experiencing diarrhea. Any of those symptoms will deplete the water in your body even further and cause you to feel continually more awful. So replenish that water regularly and often to avoid the dehydration that will make the current symptoms from your fever even worse as well as possibly adding new ones. It would benefit you to also drink other liquids on this list for your fever, but, as usual, water should be your number one priority. By keeping that key fact in mind as well as the rest of the points in this article, you’re likely to get better in no time!

            How to Flow Your Way to a More Productive Life

            How to Flow Your Way to a More Productive Life

            Ebb and flow. Contraction and expansion. Highs and lows. It’s all about the cycles of life.

            The entire course of our life follows this up and down pattern of more and then less. Our days flow this way, each following a pattern of more energy, then less energy, more creativity and periods of greater focus bookended by moments of low energy when we cringe at the thought of one more meeting, one more call, one more sentence.

            The key is in understanding how to use the cycles of ebb and flow to our advantage. The ability to harness these fluctuations, understand how they affect our productivity and mood and then apply that knowledge as a tool to improve our lives is a valuable strategy that few individuals or corporations have mastered.

            Here are a few simple steps to start using this strategy today:

            Advertising

            Review Your Past Flow

            Take just a few minutes to look back at how your days and weeks have been unfolding. What time of the day are you the most focused? Do you prefer to be more social at certain times of the day? Do you have difficulty concentrating after lunch or are you energized? Are there days when you can’t seem to sit still at your desk and others when you could work on the same project for hours?

            Do you see a pattern starting to emerge? Eventually you will discover a sort of map or schedule that charts your individual productivity levels during a given day or week.  That’s the first step. You’ll use this information to plan your days going forward.

            Schedule According to Your Flow Pattern

            Look at the types of things you do each day…each week. What can you move around so that it’s a better fit for you? Can you suggest to your team that you schedule meetings for late morning if you can’t stand to be social first thing? Can you schedule detailed project work or highly creative tasks, like writing or designing when you are best able to focus? How about making sales calls or client meetings on days when you are the most social and leaving billing or reports until another time when you are able to close your door and do repetitive tasks.

            Keep in mind that everyone is different and some things are out of our control. Do what you can. You might be surprised at just how flexible clients and managers can be when they understand that improving your productivity will result in better outcomes for them.

            Account for Big Picture Fluctuations

            Look at the bigger picture. Consider what happens during different months or times during the year. Think about what is going on in the other parts of your life. When is the best time for you to take on a new project, role or responsibility? Take into account other commitments that zap your energy. Do you have a sick parent, a spouse who travels all the time or young children who demand all of your available time and energy?

            We all know people who ignore all of this advice and yet seem to prosper and achieve wonderful success anyway, but they are usually the exception, not the rule. For most of us, this habitual tendency to force our bodies and our brains into patterns of working that undermine our productivity result in achieving less than desired results and adding more stress to our already overburdened lives.

            Why not follow the ebb and flow of your life instead of fighting against it?
