Mononucleos recovery: This is a time to rest . Maintain good sleep and nutritional habits. Limit physical activity and especially caffeine. Use of these high caffeinated beverages on your body's physiology can be harmful. Use sleep and good nutrition to give yourself energy. Get proper sunshine exposure and maintain your hydration. Wish you well on your recovery.
