I love tiled floors. Yes, they’re beautiful. Yes, they’re also easy to clean. But I like them because they make a great place to snooze when you’re feeling sick. The cold feeling that chills your feet in the wintertime is unfortunate, but when you’re under the weather, it’s great to cuddle with!
So here’s “Doctor” Melia’s remedy for when you don’t feel the best.
- Stomachache? Take a Tums and lay on your stomach on the floor.
- Headache? Take a Tylenol and make sure your temple is touching the floor.
- Feeling dizzy? You should be on the floor anyway. Gravity is not your friend right now.
- Fever? This one’s obvious.
Lying out on my bathroom floor is also a great option after some time outside on a summer day. And Lord knows it’s been hot here in NC lately…
This is the same idea behind the ChiliPad. It does heat, but what most people like is the cooling feature. It can be just as lovely as catnaps on cold floors, but a million times more comfortable. It cools using circulating water, not electricity (or ceramic!). Aside from using it to sleep at night, it works wonders for when you don’t feel good.
