the fine art of couchbedding: a sick day survival guide

Between Fred Baby’s doubly doozy of bronchitis and the flu (overachiever) and my round-the-clock dozing as I attempt to fight off both, lately we’ve been #teamcouchbedding. But while being sick sucks, your sick day doesn’t have to. Really! Here’s how to survive a sick day in style. 

Above sick day essentials:

a bell to notify the help to replenish your hot toddy / glam pajamas because you’re sick, not an animal / a sleep mask because now more than ever your beauty sleep is of utmost importance / a pretty place to stash your drugs / a pillow with your motto, in sickness & in health / slippers to keep your toes toasty / a cheery blanket that doesn’t make you want to kill yourself / a chic tray for your soup & saltine diet and to use as your makeshift desk because let’s face it, this blog doesn’t write itself!

More sick day essentials:

I also LOVE these cozy faux fur throws.


We’ve been living off of homemade veggie chilitortilla soup, and salmon with veggies (plus variations on this ginger chicken soup & this Tuscan kale soup).

But when you’re too sick to cook or shop, embrace the wonder that is Instacart and Google Express (who can grocery shop for you & get your OTC drugs same day). TaskRabbit can probably pick up your prescription drugs and there’s always GrubHub for restaurant delivery without every having to talk to anyone. Bliss.
