With the assistance of Instacart and Doordash, you can have the essential sick-day items delivered directly to your door. Simply tell them in the instructions where to leave it so that you don’t have to meet up with them and expose them to the illness. 
 

Stockpile Necessities Near Your Bed

Getting out of bed when you are sick is a difficult task. Before you get cozy for the day, stockpile everything you might need on your bedside table; this should include medicine, tissues, water, thermometer, phone charger, etc. The fewer times you have to get out of bed, the better. 
 

Distract Yourself

Taking a sick day can be a gift and a curse. When you are sitting around with nothing to do other than feel sorry for yourself, you will focus on every ache and pain. Instead, keep yourself busy and distracted. Choose tasks that don’t require too much work or mental strain, such as knitting, listening to a podcast, or even coloring. The time will pass by much quicker when you are keeping yourself occupied. 

Next time you have a sick day at home by yourself, make the most of delivery apps, stockpile necessities near your bed, and keep yourself busy. With these tips in mind, you will surely make the most of your recovery time. Do you have any other words of wisdom? Feel free to share them in the comments below.
