Firstly, start taking supplements - you want to make sure you are taking zinc and vitamin c, which have both been found to strengthen the immune system and help your fast track that cold virus so you feel better sooner.
Get plenty of rest. Though you may worry about getting things done, a day or two of rest will mean that you'll be feeling better and be more productive in the long run. Sleep, and relax, until you're feeling better.
