- Listen to your body. Certainly this isn't everyone but for me, if I'm not doing well, I've got to remember to take the hint.
- Immediately get warm. Turn on the heater, put on a jacket or extra layers even if you're not cold. Early moves in this can save hours of misery.
- Don’t trust a mild cold - too often I’ve had something that looked very temporary that turned into a bunch of unpleasant symptoms on day 2. Take time off, lay down, and watch movies. Turn up the heat and wrap yourself in blankets. Take no chances. Speaking from a moment where I didn’t do that, it really didn’t end well.
- Real drugs. If you have any medication to knock you out, make sure you drink a lot of water. As always, whatever you take, make sure you take half first.
