At least it works for me like that.
I pulled my hamstring exercising yesterday. This morning I woke up feeling like I was fighting a cold my daughter just got over. By the end of the day I felt so weak I could barely drive home.
Luckily my sweet husband served dinner and took care of Hannah while I lay on the couch. Finally I got up to take a nice hot bath and two Ibuprofen (I don't know how to spell that word, but Hannah insists it's M-O-I-I-I).
I really feel so much better. I'm even contemplating working out, but I know Matt will have my head for that!
So, the next time you feel yucky - take a hot bath.
It just WORKS!
