I've been battling a gnarly cold for about a week. Sore throat, cough, sneezing, nausea, all of it. I'm not really the type of person who relaxes or takes time off of work (although I really recommend you rest when sick). I need to muscle through a cold and be the same energetic person who wakes up Seattle when they don't have a cold.
My friend Colleen recommended a Starbucks Medicine Ball. While it's not necessarily on the "secret menu" it was a secret to me! How have I never heard about this magic before?! It got me through an entire morning show as if I wasn't sick at all. While it didn't cure my cold, it definitely helped me get through a few hours as if I wasn't sick at all. It's my new addiction and lifesaver! The magic potion is 1/2 steamed lemonade + 1/2 hot water +Jade Citris Mint green tea + Peach Tranquility herbal tea + honey. It's definitely sweet but it tastes great!
