1. Relax!
    A low / moderate level of stress can be good, as it helps you prepare for a challenge that you have to face. But if the stress is chronic and prolonged, it lowers your immunity.
  2. Get a pet!
    It is no coincidence that the dog is man’s best friend. Pet owners (with fur) have lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol and a healthier heart. Children with pets have better immunity and have a lower risk of developing allergies.
  3. Make time for friends!
    Having family and friends has a beneficial effect on your health. If you don’t have friends, volunteer or join a club!
  4. Look at the full side of the glass!
    When you have positive thoughts, your defense system works better. Try to focus on the good things in your life.
  5. Laugh as much as you can!
    Studies show that people who laugh (even when watching funny videos) have a much better immunity.
  6. Eat as diverse as possible!
    Colored fruits and vegetables contain a lot of antioxidants (which fight against pathogens and microbes) – choose as many colors as possible on your plate!
  7. Get moving!
    Exercise is a simple way to improve your immune system. It also reduces stress and the risk of developing osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease and certain types of cancer. You can choose anything: swimming, cycling, walking, etc.
  8. Get enough sleep!
    Without proper rest, your body will not be strong enough to fight the disease. An adult should sleep 7-9 hours a night (no more, no less).
  9. Give up alcohol!
    Too much alcohol can lower your immune system. What is the maximum dose? One glass / day for women and 2 glasses / day for men.
  10. Quit smoking!
    It is known that smokers have a weaker immune system due to nicotine.
  11. Wash your hands with soap for at least 20 seconds.
  12. When you have a cold or the flu, eat bone broth!
