We are in the midst of the Northern Hemisphere’s Flu season. Office absences rates are sky-rocketing, and productivity is flat-lining as embattled professionals try and juggle work, life and flu, usually unsuccessfully. In the perfect world, when we contract flu or even a cold, we’d simply shut up shop, put our feet up, pump ourselves full of flu remedies and watch HBO box sets all day. Even though deep rest and relaxation is the fastest way back to health, this is a luxury that most executives and self-employed can ill afford, with most of us being required to power through the illness – shivers and all – and remain at full productivity. It’s the reality.
