1. Take a hot shower at 7 o’clock
However, it is important to wake up at 7 am to have all day to heal, and the shower steam will help you eliminate all the mucus accumulated in your sinuses.
2. Take two teaspoons of elderberry syrup at 8 o’clock
Elderberry is ideal when you are sick because it will give your immune system the boost it needs to get your disease going.
3. Have a good breakfast at 9am
You may be used to starting your day with a cup of hot coffee and a bowl of cereal, but when you are sick, it is recommended to take eggs and tea.
In addition, if you add a little lemon and honey to your hot tea, it can soothe your throat even better than some prescription drugs.
4. Add chickpeas and pumpkin seeds to your lunch at 12:30
These are the two perfect additions to your lunch because they are incredibly rich in zinc, which is helpful in reducing inflammation and infection in your body.
In fact, eating zinc-rich foods before you get sick is the perfect way to reduce the symptoms of your cold. If these foods are not available to you, you can opt for some zinc lozenges.
5. Fill your water bottle at 14h
As your body tries to fight an infection, it becomes more prone to dehydration, so it’s even more important to drink enough water and fill your bottle with water whenever you need it.
6. Do a little exercise at 15h
You can simply go for a walk to get enough of your immune system to help you better protect your body.
7. Eat soup at 6:30 pm
When you’re sick, there’s nothing better than a bowl of hot soup to help you feel better because the soothing vapors help reduce inflammation.
8. Get rid of mucus at 9:00 pm
To make sure you have cleared all the mucus from your throat and nose before going to bed, make a coarse salt gargle or spray to clear your airways.
9. Go to sleep at 22:00
For some, it may seem a bit early, but your body needs to rest as much as possible to feel better the next morning.
However, if you have trouble falling asleep, raise your head to open your nasal passages and breathe easier.
