Catching cold isn’t pleasant, and because it is ‘just’ a cold there is lots of pressure to carry on as usual even though actually you feel pretty ill. Here are the ADHD Coach’s top 5 tips for beating your cold so you can continue on your brilliant ADHD journey.

1. Emergen-C
Besides having a really catchy title, this product is incredible. It is packed full of Vitamin C, antioxidants and electrolytes. It comes is sachets that you mix with water and you can literally feel all the goodness as you drink it.

2. Echinacea Tea

This tea works miracles with whatever ailment you have, however it’s particularly good for colds. Besides its healing properties when you have a cold, it also cures your dehydration and warms you up

3. Nasal Irrigation

This might seem strange the first time you use it, but by rinsing your nose you clear away mucus, irritants, bacteria and viruses. It’s an old tradition in India and now a company called Neilmed has created a product that makes it really easy to do. I use the SinuRinse Nasal Wash Kit

4. Chicken soup
It’s not an old wives tale. Chicken soup has been scientifically proven to help you get over your cold. If you are really sick, you probably won’t feel like heading to the kitchen so make a big batch now and freeze it, just in case.

5. Sleep
Those old wives really knew what they were talking about! It’s not a myth – you do heal when you sleep. Never skim on sleep, but particularly when you have a cold. Get as much sleep as you need and you will notice how much speedier your recovery is.
