I didn't sleep well last night, due to congestion, a sore throat, and general yuckiness. At about 1:30am, I got up and headed to the kitchen to make myself a cup of tea with honey and to gargle some saltwater. The latter wasn't quite as enjoyable, but it really helped.
The steam from the tea helped clear me up, at least for a little while. The saltwater (a teaspoon of salt dissolved in a cup of warm water) was for my sore throat. I'd never tried it before, and I was surprised at how good it felt. It also didn't taste as nasty as I thought it would.
Now, I'm not against over-the-counter medication, so I also took some cough & cold stuff I found in the bathroom cabinet. =)
