Welcome to cold season, my friends. While I wish I could say I have avoided getting sick, I have unfortunately caught a cold, not once, but twice. (Talk about bad timing.) Who even knew that was possible?! Regardless, I've had to take several actions in order to try to quicken my cold as much as I can and since so many people are dealing with colds right now, I thought I would share some of my tips for getting rid of those annoying symptoms!
Stock up on kleenex.
Buying quality tissues like the lotionized kind can really make a huge difference when you're blowing your nose every five seconds. Not to mention, if your school is notorious for running out of tissues like mine, having a travel pack with you at all times is a great idea.
Get lots of sleep.
I cannot stress this one enough. Coming from someone who has always needed lots of sleep, getting in your rest really is the main thing that will get you feeling better the fastest. It is so crucial to get as much sleep as possible, even if that means sneaking in a 30 minute nap after school.
Stay really hydrated.
To ditch your cold as soon as possible, make sure to drink lots of fluids. Even though drinking water or juice may seem like the last thing you want to do when you're under the weather, it is super important to clear toxins in your body and clear out your system.
Consume tons of Vitamin C.
My love for citrusy things really comes in handy when I'm sick ;) Drinking as much orange juice as possible, as well as adding lots of oranges to your diet, can really help boost your immune system and get you back to feeling normal again.
Now I'm interested to hear: any tips you live by to get rid of the common cold?
