World's Best Advice for your Common Cold!

176. What factors cause us to get colds? part 2

continued from What factors cause us to get colds?  Part 1

OK, after cold temperature and personal closeness, other big factors in getting colds (all preventable) have to do with our personal immune systems tending to be weaker at this time….

…and I REALLY want to know who’s crazy idea was it to schedule 4 major holidays in a row, just when we are already hectic getting the school year started… can we change that please??…

Well, if we can’t change the calendar then at least you really need to be aware of your personal health levels (which you have more control over than the international holiday schedules)

TIREDNESS… my personal theory is that this season is naturally conducive to hibernation, so follow the example of other mammals.

And instead of going crazy over handwashing (sure wash them often, but not obsessively) but pay more attention to these other factors.

And some other factors contributing to our tiredness can be…

  • Emotional stress, feeling overwhelmed with too many tasks to do, high expectations of amount of work and other activity we need do (earning money, taking care of famiy, volunteering to help in school, charities, friends, social relationships… all o which can leads to not taking good enough care of ourselves
  • Eating poorly
  • Lack of sleep
  • Lack of exercise

All of which cause our personal  immune system defenses are at a low ebb, (can you feel it now??) but most of those factors, you CAN take care of.

As for me, I’m feeling very glad now to get back into a normal routine, to put on hot bowls of pumpkin soup, green teas, sleep in a lot, get my normal exercise routine going again, (ballroom dance anyone??) and continue onward in my personal crusade to alleviate the world of common colds!

Onwards and upward Cold Crusaders!
