Basic Steps on How to Boost the Immune System

Curious about how to make your body resistant to germs and diseases? Here are the Basic Steps on How to Boost the Immune System so you can live a longer, healthier life.

Step 1: Get moving

Get moving: Just 30 minutes a day of moderate exercise will do. You can even split it into three 10-minute bursts of activity.

Step 2: Laugh it off

Find something to laugh about every day – even force it if you have to. Real or fake, laughter strengthens your immune system by increasing good-for-you hormones and reducing stress ones; lowering your blood pressure; and slowing your resting heart rate.

Step 3: Look at the bright side

Train yourself to look at the bright side. Optimistic people were two and a half times less likely to develop cancer of any kind than their pessimistic peers, according to one study.

Step 4: Make time for friends

Make time for the friends you have and cultivate new ones. A study found that seniors with a lot of pals were 22 percent less likely than their less social counterparts to die during the decade when they participated in the study.

Step 5: Eat well

Eat a healthy diet: at least five servings of fruits and vegetables a day focusing on the antioxidant powerhouses; complex carbs, fatty fish, and a few cups of green tea at least two times a week; a daily handful of nuts; no more than one glass of alcohol per day; and a limited amount of meat and sweets.

Step 6: Sleep well

Get at least seven hours of sleep every night, more if you can.
