If Possible, Work On Your Own
Colds aren’t exactly attractive. For that reason, one of the biggest distractions when you're sick is worrying about how you sound or look. Did Lisa just see your nose run? Did Bob hear you cough weirdly?
Plus, you may be worried about spreading the cold to other co-workers. You don’t want to be that person.
If possible, work on your own, where you can let your body recover without worrying.
