Coughing, sneezing, supporting, groaning. Everything seems infinitely more difficult when you have a cold. By doing the following things you immediately feel a little better.
1. Drink more water
Drinking water ensures that you stay hydrated and will help waste products drain faster from your body. Add some lemon or mint for the taste, if you are not such a water fan.
2. Drink apple cider vinegar
Add a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar to a glass of water and drink it. We can guarantee that it will not taste good, but it helps against the mucus that is inevitably accompanied by a cold.
Sleep not only helps you recover faster but is also good for you if you are not yet ill. A few hours of extra rest ensure that your body is better able to fight viruses.
4. Take a bath
The warm water not only feels good for your muscles, the steam of the warm water will also ensure that your nose gets faster.
5. Take a zinc tablet
No, zinc will not make sure that you do not get a cold, but research shows that your cold will last considerably less.
6. Do yoga for a moment
Try to meditate for a few minutes or to practice a quiet form of yoga. After all that lying down, stretching is a welcome change for your body. In addition, meditation ensures that you become more relaxed.
7. Turn on the humidifier
The extra moisture in the air will make it easier for you to breathe.
