What Do You Do on Sick Days?

If you’re like me, you don’t enjoy being sick and having to take time off from work.  About once a year, I get a virus that ends up settling in my lungs, causing bronchitis, and I have to take a couple of days off.

I really hate having to reschedule appointments and shuffle projects around to others.  But despite these hassles, over the last few years I’ve learned to embrace, if not enjoy, these sick days.  Here are a few reasons why:

  1. I catch up on my reading – not just work-related magazines and journals, but personal interest stuff too.
  2. I catch up on the latest news from online sources.
  3. I catch up on blogs and sites I follow, and go more in-depth with them.
  4. I learn something new by researching a topic I’ve wanted to learn about but haven’t made time for yet.

These are just a few reasons why I don’t mind a sick day every now and then.  What about you?  What do you do on your sick days?
