watch a funny movie, rest, relax.
Take honey - about one tsp 3x a day for the cough.
Drink green tea with lemon and honey - at least six glasses / day.
Green mucus suggest thick stale drainage, possible bacteria. Humming helps move the mucus. If persists, ask doctor about using Hydro Pulse Nasal/Sinus irrigator to remove stale phlegm and restore good cilia movement
