Bad Cold: Good Hack

I've had a Bad cold for the past 6 days and have been going through tissues like crazy. BUT I found a great hack on Pinterest.

I stationed myself in my personal "office" at home to keep the germs confined to one area as much as possible.

The room is entirely mine and houses my computer in front of two bright windows,  a large comfy sofa, a cozy upholstered chair near the window, my supply of essential oils, and my essential oil diffuser. 

To date, I've gone through 2 and half boxes of tissues, taken my temperature excessively, drank liters of herbal teas, applied Thieves Essential oil to my feet , chest, and diffuser and been combing Pinterest mindlessly and obsessively and eaten lots of homemade broths and soup. 

I made this soup in 10 minutes

 I was on Pinterest early this morning and found a good hack for when you have a bad cold

Here is The Hack I Learned From Pinterest

This is a cool hack for disposing dirty tissues when sick. It helps stop the spread of germs and is economical and planet conscious.

 Use an empty tissue box for your dirty tissues instead of a plastic bag or garbage can. No one including yourself will have to empty the germ-y garbage. When the empty tissue box is full of dirty tissues- just discard! AND if you grab a tissue- you know just where to dispose of it!!

What do you do when you have a cold? Do you stay in one room or do you go about business?
I like to confine myself and my germs; my husband doesn't.. It's a big problem..
What do you do ?/
