When the weather doesn't know what it wants to do, neither does my sinuses. Bustle says that there are some old wives' tales regarding treating a cold that are actually true!

  • Eating oranges as they are packed with vitamin C and zinc which can help boost your immune system in order to fend off a cold quicker and shorten the length of time that you're feeling sick.
  • Getting lots of rest can be tough because no one likes to slow down, but if you're feeling the affects of a cold, one of the best things that you can do is sleep. Your body can focus on fighting the germs and get you back up in running so much faster.
  • Regular exercise along with healthy diet can provide you with a stronger immune system overall, so instead of boosting your system in times of need, being active on a regular basis can help keep your system stronger all the time.

Your grandmother was right when she tried to tell you how to fight a cold with food and sleep. Next time, listen to her!
