Among the best foods that you should eat are green vegetables like broccoli, peas, spinach and green beans as they are all wonderfully high in healthy vitamins and fibre. You can also benefit from a hearty daily protein intake from the likes of red meat, poultry and fish, or beans and pulses if you aren’t fond of meat. Protein is the multi-purpose construction material in your body and is used to make almost anything, including your white blood cells, the first line of defence against bacteria.
Shaking hands with people is one of the key physical displays of rapport, but too much of it can lead to germs spreading rapidly about the office space. You can also invest in some antibacterial gel, for regularly disinfecting your hands if contact is inevitable in your line of work. It is, however, important to remember that isolation does not lead to inoculation. Avoiding physical contact altogether may seem like your safest bet for outrunning the threat of infection, but your natural immunity is created by exposing yourself to the threat.
When you aren't soothing your body with nutritious food and drinks, you should be looking at how to relax your mind. Don’t overwork yourself, make lots of social plans with friends and family, and take the time you need to relax. All of these things can help ensure that you have the body to tackle illness, and a mind to match.
You can also take action emotionally personally, have you ever heard of the phrase ‘self fulfilling prophecy’? It means when you believe in something so much that it happens because your brains starts willing itself to see the results of its prediction. If you are the kind of person who says to themselves ‘oh no I am going to get ill’, stop now! Go into the Winter months with total optimism and you might find you come out the other side feeling even better!
