At least once in your life you’ve had to call in sick to work. You’ve likely legitimately been sick when making that call. But what about those days when you want to stay home and you’re not sick. Maybe you just need a mental health day full of silence and “vegging out”. Maybe you can’t handle the way Sheila chews her food in the morning meeting (name has been changed to protect the innocent *wink*). November 30 has been deemed “Call in Well Day”. The day where you can call in sick but stay home well.
Okay, so you’re on board with me and calling in well on the 30th. What are you supposed to do with all of this free time at home? Here’s what I’d do:
1 // Play in the tub. Not because you’re three, but because you want to relax and no one is home but you. You can actually lay in the hottest water tolerable, soak in the oils and bubbles… in peace. In the dark.. maybe with some candles… maybe read a magazine. Alone. Can you tell my kids constantly walk in on me in the bathroom?! Nowhere is your own during communal hours. Slap on some Reviva Labs Collagen-Fibre Eye Pads, mask up with Borghese Fango, exfoliate with some LUSH Ocean Salt…. basically take your well day and bask in it.
2 // Jam. Not the food. Music. Your music. Not one of your songs, then one of your SO’s… then 1,000 of your kids. Yours. Sing as loud as you want for as long as you want to anything you want.
3 // Now the food. Eat what you want and you don’t have to share. For me, I love to eat buttered noodles and peanut butter cups from the fridge. Because well day isn’t really about “eating well”. As you sink into your food coma pop in a Ricola® Dual Action Honey Lemon drop for stamina and to help keep you from actually getting sick so that your next “call in sick day” can be a “well day” also 😉 . A blend of 10 herbs called Chrüterchraft is naturally effective in soothing relief for your throat as well as other ailments that may be impending.
Ricola® is hitting the road to help America wake up their mouths with their Revitalizing drops! I love how these drops make my throat feel during allergy season and the colder months… find me that car! Check out the site and see if Ricola® will be stopping by a city near you! #wakeupyourmouth
4 // Catch up. It’s so stressful to be behind on anything. Even the DVR. Catch up on shows while you do something that you enjoy. Decorate your planner, do some adult coloring… find your happy place.
5 // Try a new nail color. Work safe bah humbug. Do a LUSH Hot Hand Mask, toss the nudes and neutrals and give yourself a mani pedi of something bold and bright… go as vampy as you want… bring on the glitter. Rhinestones. Add on your favorite hand cream and voila.
Notice how I didn’t say clean anything? Because, no. Not on your well day.
FYI I think it goes without saying to use extreme discretion when calling in well. You know your employer the best and it’s obviously not worth losing your job over… but if you can call in well… do that. We all need a little break sometimes!
