How you treat your body affects how healthy you are. Lack of rest, exercise, and sleep compromise immune function and increase your susceptibility to ailments. Light to moderate exercises strengthens your body and keeps the illnesses away. Adequate sleep and rest is equally important. One must try and get at least eight hours of sleep (to rejuvenate ourselves). To keep one’s stress levels under check, incorporate relaxing techniques like meditation, tai chi or pranayama into your daily routine. Remember that each gram of wrong food that goes into your system substitutes for one gram of immune enhancing nutrient that you would otherwise take. Immunity building is a process and not a fixed state. It needs to be worked upon consistently. This information is for any person who does not want to fall sick. You have to work at your immune system just like you work on your career, sports, family, and relationships. Those who apply themselves early to a disciplined lifestyle generally acquire a better immune system than those who don’t.
