You must often envy people around you who are too healthy to fall sick. While you are at exhausting the quota of your sick leaves, their pack is intact.
We may blame our genes but that’s not what immunity is all about. In fact, a major part of it depends on your lifestyle. So, here are 21 things these people do and which you must also adopt if you don’t want to envy them and instead be them.
THEY THINK POSITIVE: That’s like the foundation for a strong body. If you believe that you will fall sick merely by sitting around someone who is coughing, so you will. However, if you think better than this about your body’s immunity, it will stay that way. A research also proved that if you stayed positive, you were three to four times less likely to catch a cold.
THEY DRINK ENOUGH WATER: No, eight glasses a day isn’t the rule. Every person’s requirement is different. You can calculate it by deploying this simple method: For every 20 kilos of your weight, drink a litre of water. So, if you weigh 50 kilos, your water consumption should be 2.5 litres a day.
THEY DRINK HOT WATER: More than staying hydrated, healthy people also drink hot water which is very helpful in keeping the symptoms of flu at bay. When you drink hot water, it can reduce sinus symptoms and can clear your nasal passage.
THEY TAKE SUFFICIENT VITAMIN C: Vitamin C is very helpful in boosting your immunity level. Your daily requirement for the vitamin is 60 to 90 mg, which you can easily get through half a cup of chopped green bell pepper.
