What is your ritual when you get sick?

I have been deathly sick with god knows what for the past few days and I have tried everything from ginger ale to the neti pot and I was curious what other people do when they get sick...

Lots of rest, a hot shower and some old fashioned homemade soup does it.

I'm currently sick. I slept for 14 hours last night with a humidifier on. I've taken a bunch of medicine and tried hot showers. It all helps to an extent but...ugh.

I love to lay on my couch and watch something on Netflix, Friends, or Harry Potter with a giant glass of Sunny D. Always makes me feel better. Probably because that was my routine as a child.

I sleep a lot when I'm sick. It seems to be the best way to heal up fast.

Try binaural beats/isochronic tones on youtube? They have many different types like for allergies, colds, back pain, headache, etc. I will do that, think positive, take a shower/bath, make tea,eat soup, and sleep. I rarely ever get sick.

I usually crawl into bed & like to be left alone. Or if I'm super sick, I sleep on the bathroom floor so I can get to the can faster.

My appetite consists of Ramen noodles, and I don't go to the doctor because I'm ignorant

Forgot to also check other, but hot ginger tea and vegetable broth (obv, not together...that'd be gross).
