Offer Arghya to the rising sun and fast without salt
Worship Method: After taking bath before sunrise, fill pure water in a copper vessel. Along with that put red sandalwood, red flowers, rice and some wheat grains in the pot. Om Ghrini Suryaya Namah: Chant the mantra and offer the water of this pot to the rising sun. After this, salute Lord Bhaskar. Chant Gayatri Mantra and if possible recite Aditya Hriday Stotra as well. Apart from this, one can also chant the 12 names of Lord Surya.
Fasting method: Sit in front of the sun and take a pledge to fast without salt for the whole day. If possible, drink water from a copper vessel throughout the day.
