Ever since I was a kid, I kept getting constantly attacked by cold. It would be quite rare to find me cold-free. And, most of the time, I would find it hard to breathe. But over the years, my colds have become less recurrent, and I’ve quite mastered the art of managing this irksome disease- through experience.
And a lot of people would agree with me when I say colds can be a real pain when you have something really important coming up. But don’t worry, I’ve got some tips for you that might come in handy.
Steaming is one of the best ways to make you feel better when you have a bad head- cold. Put in all your favourite herbs in a vessel of water and boil it. Cover yourself, and the vessel with a blanket, so that the steam doesn’t go out, and inhale. Most of your cold will be expelled in the form of sweat. And, steaming is also good for the skin! Just take care not to do it too often.
Apply some cold balm and just relax yourself. You don’t necessarily have to sleep, just lie down and relax.
Drink lots of water and hot tea. This always helps me. Taking a hot shower is also good. Try not to exert yourself doing anything unnecessary. You’ll need all the strength you can get!

Sometimes I feel like I would be totally lost in the ocean of routine life if I don’t spend some alone time with my books every now and then- and it’s true! Books are life- savers. If you haven’t read- then you haven’t lived. I started reading when I was about nine… and my first book was Enid Blyton’s. From Famous Five and Secret Seven, I gradually moved to Nancy Drew, Harry Potter and Shakespeare, among others. Agatha Christie came next, I think… then I moved on to Classics. The Hound Of The Baskervilles never ceases to thrill me, even though it has been long since that I first read it. The Wind In The Willows, by Kenneth Grahame, is one of my all time favourites. I love Greek mythology, and am a great fan of Indian short stories. Not just Indian- basically all good short stories. And over the past 7-8 years since I became a bookworm, I’ve come to realize that- I love reading because I chose to start with the right books. A Good Base, they say, is absolutely essential. And in this case, I totally agree. When you pick the right books to start your journey, then there’s no stopping you. I’ve probably read hundreds of novels by now, and I’m rather proud to say that I chose the right ones. Once you achieve that, no matter what genre, you will feel quite comfortable with the book you’re holding.
