The Worst Advice Ever Given

Watch any cold, flu or pain killer commercial and you’ll get pretty much the same old story: “soldier on”! Ok, so I get it; there are times when you just have to do what has to be done, you haven’t a choice and you just have to get on with it. But “soldier on” may just be the worst piece of advice ever given.

If you’re flat on your back with a desire to get back to full strength as quickly as possible, then the last thing that you need to do is “soldier on”.

Rather: go to bed, go straight to bed, get some rest, rug up and have some down time. Let your body recover and focus on doing what it needs to do, not the ten thousand errands that can probably wait.

The best advise ever? “Rest up”!

At some point you’ll have to, why postpone the inevitable, might as well be now.
