A Good Night’s Sleep – Getting a good 6 hours or more of sleep each day can reduce your risk of catching a cold by a factor of 4.

A Bit of Hugging – While the contact created by hugs can increase the chance of infection, studies have shown those who hug frequently experience less severe symptoms should they contract something because hugs reduce stress levels in the body, improving your disease-fighting capability.

A Diet Filled with Fruit & Veggies – Those on low-carb, high-protein diets are more likely to develop moderate to severe COVID infections compared to those who eat more fruit, vegetables and whole grains.
