I have known this about myself for a long time: Being creative keeps my mind stimulated and happy.
Doing nothing (i.e. watching TV) is literally mind-numbing, so I get bored and have to look for something new to do.
Thus explaining my active tshirt design making, photography, small business ventures/ideas, and extra-curricular activities. It all boosts my well-being, keeps me happy, and of a positive mind!
That said, I’ve had a horrific cough for about 10 days. Yes, no doctor visit. Figured I’d be over it sooner.
Last night I had a thought: It has been about 6 weeks since I had a coffee!
So I googled ‘can coffee help cure a cold‘. Yes I wanted a particular answer, so I had to dig deep. Found it:
“Coffee, believe it or not, is good for your sore throat, but only if you have a common cold. Don’t make it too strong, that’s just gross. Studies done suggest that coffee has two great benefits: tons of antioxidants and throat soothing qualities.”
I had a large Mocha coffee. My throat feels better … for now … and I am feeling boosted. Positively. :)
