Medical experts agree there are things you can do to make sure your immune system is at peak performance during the coming flu & cold season. (Not to mention, the always presents threat of another bout of COVID.)
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 Little Sunshine – Spending some time in the sun stimulates the production of vitamin D, which in turn, increases your protection against the flu and respiratory illness.
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.
