So many reasons to keep exercising.
exercise is biggest I need to work on. Keep motivating me!! Thank you
Or you could just go work in an elementary school,
You know kids; they're constantly coming down with something. When I was student-teaching, I was continually exposed to every bacterium, virus, and other bug the kiddies brought into the classroom with them. I have always been very healthy, but I pretty much stayed sick (sniffly/sneezy/congested/throat-sore/achy
/sleep-deprived) for the entire 18 weeks. It felt as though I was exposed to virtually every pathogen on the planet, and I now feel immune to them all because after that, as well as my first (miserable) year in my own classroom, I have NEVER again been sick! Not even so much as a cold.
Thanks for the tips!
Thank you! It’s hard for me to manage stress and to get enough sleep.
All great advice, but for those dealing with a poor immune system like I did for 30 years, take elderberry capsules every day....they have made all the difference in the world to me. I take 1250 mg of elderberry sambucus and it has been a miracle as far as I am concerned. i used to get bad, bad, bad cold sores/fever blisters, but now what i get is a TINY tender spot on my lip and it soon goes away. It is very rare for me to ever catch a cold or be sick in any way when I used to get everything that came along.
Thanks for the tips ;-)
Clue to a good immune system! Thanks.
