Sunday morning, 6am

What do you do when you’ve woken up (for the second time) at 7:30am coughing from congestion? Try to go back to sleep? Sure, that will fail though. 

I decided instead to take a bath, swallow some apple cider vinegar, make tea, use my neti pot, and listen to a Gabrielle Bernstein lecture. All in all, it was an ace plan. Now I need to go find a new humidifier because mine pretty much doesn’t work anymore.

Also: I’ve cut dairy out of my diet for now, switched to almond butter (apparently peanuts are awful for congestion), and I’m drinking all of the lemon/honey/hot water I can get my hands on. 

Any more suggestions for combating winter congestion?
