As much as people want to work very hard to earn their keep on a daily basis, there are times when the body simply cannot function properly once the presence of an illness makes itself known. No matter how careful people are when it comes to managing their health, the fact remains that the human body will always have limitations. And when people get sick, it directly affects their performance at work and could spell trouble if it is not addressed at the soonest possible time. But what if you still want to work even when you are sick?
Short of a serious and life-threatening illness, there are some maladies that are reason enough for you to call in sick for the day, but not so debilitating to the point that you can’t do anything productive. In fact, you can still do some work done—even if it’s just a little bit—when you’re experiencing a mild cold, fever, headache, or any unpleasant physical sensations that you can tolerate or handle with moderate effort. Of course, it’s important for you to prioritize your health, but there are ways to find a reasonable compromise.
