Go to Bed

Put down the laptop, log out of Spark, and go get your 8 hours. 8 hours of sleep helps to maintain healthy weight, as well as stress levels, hormone levels and general well being.

Rest When You're Sick

I was so sick on Tuesday night that I couldn't keep anything down. I lay down. Most of today I lay down as well. Sometimes, the best thing to do when you are sick is to lay down until you get to feeling better. I was able to do a little bit of exercise tonight.
