Rest: Allow your body time to recover by getting plenty of sleep and avoiding strenuous activities.

Eat nourishing foods: Focus on a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains to support your immune system.

Supplement wisely: Consider adding vitamin C, zinc, and echinacea to your regimen to help boost your immune system.

Use natural remedies: Utilize steam inhalation with essential oils like eucalyptus or peppermint to ease congestion, and honey and lemon for soothing sore throats.

Practice good hygiene: Wash your hands frequently, avoid touching your face, and cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing to prevent the spread of germs.Gentle exercise:
