It’s not a must, but try to do all 5 steps for optimum health!
It’s cold, flu and everything else season…. in other words, no time to let down your guard. Follow these easy steps to boost your immunity.
#1 GET MORE SLEEP – Logging fewer than 7 hours of shut eye had may cause the body to release fewer infection busting proteins and histamines, making you 3 times more likely to come down with a cold according to Carnegie Mellon University study.
#2 SIP SOME TEA – Chamomile, that is. This soothing brew contains antioxidant flavonoids as well as hippurate, an antibacterial compound.
#3 START MOVING – A brisk 20 minute walk once a day boosts the number of white blood cells, which attack germs, produce antibodies and devour bacteria.
#4 SMILE ON – It’s a fact, optimists have fewer colds. Sunny thoughts apparently trigger a chemical cascade that wards off illness.
#5 STEP OUTSIDE – Soak up some rays, which generate vitamin D, for 10 minutes a day. People with low levels of vitamin D have a 36% greater chance of getting sick.
