Find the things you like. Create a ritual. Like have Honey with Lemon and Ginger every morning or afternoon. Suck on a raw garlic every morning or make the kids do this on the way to school. Drink the onion juice with jaggery at night. Pick a few and possibly do 2 of these every day and another 2 the next day.
