Slowly Consuming An Entire Package Of Halls Cough Drops (Photo credit: Raymond Bryson)

I want you to try this sensory exercise.  Try and remember a time when you were sick.  How did you feel?  Start from you head and move through your body describing how each part of your body feels.

Try and remember that stuffy nose that you can’t breathe out of.  Or how one nostril is clogged and the other open just enough to let the air in. Food doesn’t taste good anymore and the taste of menthol cough drops linger on the tip of your tongue.  Your body aches.  Where does it ache?

If you can’t remember try another feeling – hunger.  What does hungry feel like?  Wait to eat until hunger hits and write about it.  Then write about the relief that eating gives you.
