    being well rested helps.

    eating fruits and drinking more water, less stress (stress results in immunocompromization due to cortisol release), and eat healthily. taking some vitamins/minerals may help. drink some green tea for the anti-oxidants.

    The time probably depends on your schedule but 16 hours awake, 8 hours asleep is generally accepted. I take a stress-oriented vitamin/mineral complex daily, but extra zinc can help at the onset of a cold.

    One thing about most illness is that you can minimise your chance of getting one by making sure that things are clean and disinfected.

    Make it a point to wash your hands regularly too as the act of washing physically removes some of the germs which cause flu/cold. I use Dettol handwash!

    The most potent is pine bark extract pills, from Nature Farm... also known as pycnogenol.
