You might think that boosting your immune system is all about taking vitamin pills and exercising. The truth is that protecting yourself from illness depends on your mind as much as your body. In fact, there’s a growing field of science called psycho neuro immunology that’s devoted to how your personality and mood affect your immune system. Recognizing the mind-body connection may help you to catch fewer colds and lower your risk for more serious illnesses. The next time you feel stressed – don’t just plow through – digging a deeper stress hole won’t do. Take the time to clear your mind and reset your thoughts. Keep in mind stress doesn’t change outcomes but less stress can change help you live a longer and healthier life.
