Outside the window is the very time of the year when we are massively sick with colds. But can they be avoided? It turns out yes! And it’s not only about strengthening immunity, but also about developing the right everyday habits. It is our actions that lead to the fact that we often get sick. Read in the magazine “Furilia”:
15 daily habits that contribute to the development of colds
Forewarned is forearmed. Right?
1. You eat at your desk
Your keyboard, mouse and desk are full of germs. Why would you eat in such a dirty place?
2. You do not do yoga
Among other things, yoga classes improve breathing and reduce stress levels, and this, in turn, has a positive effect on the body’s resistance to colds.
3. You do not change clothes at home
If a sick person sneezes or coughs near you, his/her pathogenic microbes settle on your clothes. Arriving home you definitely need to change clothes.
4. You wash your hands incorrectly
Of course, you know that you need to wash your hands, but often we do it too quickly. Wash your hands well, rub them thoroughly for 20 seconds and rinse off the foam under moderately hot water.
5. You train too much
While physical activity has a positive effect on the state of health, its excess, on the contrary, can provoke a disease. The constant release of stress hormones during exercise only increases the risk of catching a cold.
6. You use the wrong soap
Antibacterial soap also kills good bacteria, making you vulnerable to germs. A cold is caused by viruses, not bacteria, so use ordinary soap and warm water.
7. You eat a lot of sweets
A large amount of sugar is unhealthy in itself. It has a negative effect on intestinal bacteria, thereby inhibiting immunity.
8. You are talking too close to the person
Avoid too close contact with people. In general, it is much more beneficial for health to keep a distance while communicating with people.
9. Do you drink alcohol
If you think that a glass of another alcoholic drink will help you fall asleep, then you are mistaken. Alcohol adversely affects sound sleep, and constant lack of sleep undermines your immunity and health.
10. Are you stressed at work
Chronic stress makes you vulnerable to colds. If you feel burnout, know that health problems are just around the corner.
11. You are fixated on cleaning
Being clean is not always at your fingertips and does not protect against disease. If, for example, you constantly wash your hands, then you break the skin barrier that protects you from pathogens.
12. You do not clean dirty objects
Microbes accumulate on the keyboard, mouse, telephone, switches and door handles. These items must be cleaned regularly.
13. You do not use a humidifier
Dry air blocks the channels of your nose, which is why it is important to keep a moisturizer on hand.
14. You rarely go to the sun
If you avoid being in the sun, an insufficient amount of vitamin D is produced in the body, without which there is no strong immunity. Take sunbaths or nutritional supplements containing this vitamin.
15. Do you smoke or are in the company of smokers
Smoking poisons the body with toxins that weaken the immune system. Even if you are just next to those who smoke, your health is no less harmful.
