Many people can agree that the most frustrating part of being sick is not being able to get a good night’s rest. Between the constant coughing and chest congestion, getting more than a few moments of shut-eye at one time feels impossible.

So, in the last part of this flu remedies guide, we offer you a few surefire ways to get the sleep you need to recover.

Elevate

One easy way to beat the nighttime congestion that causes sleeplessness is to elevate your head. Sleep with pillows propping your head up to open the upper airways.

Humidify

Dry air tends to make you feel the effects of nasal and chest congestion more strongly which keeps you up at night. You can use a warm mist humidifier to add moisture into the air. The added moisture makes breathing and sleeping much easier. Just remember to keep your body hydrated as well or the extra effort will be wasted.

Try nasal strips

Nasal strips placed on the fleshy part of your nose can really help to open your airways and get you sleeping soundly. You kick up the decongestant effects by first clearing your nasal passages with a saline nasal spray.
