A couple of solutions...

As mentioned previously, tire liners can work, but only really protect the tread, not the sides of the tube. If you cycle in an area with thorns...the sides can get punctured as well...

Slime—this stuff works. IIRC, it's a gel-like polymer compound that you pour into the tubes and then ride the bike for a bit to spread around. It then coats the interior of the tube and will form a seal around punctures. Works pretty well.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
