If you’re fighting a cold, I recommend a few little tips to keep it from getting into your lungs and making things worse:

  • Figure out if nasal irrigation is something that you’d do, at least for emergencies like keeping a cold from taking up residence.
  • Try sleeping on your side, tilting your head so drainage is less likely to go down your throat.
  • Take deep, cleansing breaths to fill up to the top of your lungs, then force the air out.  Be prepared for shallow to deep coughs, and ride them out, helping force the gunk up out of your lungs.
