Cough, Cough, Sneeze, Sneeze

The pollen here is off the charts.  You would think with all the rain and wind we have had it would be gone.  Nope it just keeps hanging around, multiplying daily it seems.

Every student I have had for the past few days at work has been sick and so have most of my colleagues.  It's all respiratory stuff, sinus and cough.  I think it is a combination of all the pollen and maybe a few bugs going around too.

The last couple of days  I have made classes extra gentle.  Lots of breath work and gentle stretches and meditation have been the norm.  No one has any energy.  Our medical staff is doing their stuff, I am recommending herbal teas, such as peppermint, ginger and Breathe Deep.  Also encouraging extra rest, plenty of fluids and lots of fruits and veggies and soups.

As one of the counselors told me today, we will get through this, we will all feel better soon.  I made him promise and told him I would hold him to it.

I hope your week has been good so far.  Stay healthy, be kind and spread some joy.
