Avoid stress during the pandemic

If you want to optimize the efficiency of your immune system, you need to relax.

Meditation, pitou walks, tai chi, yoga, qi gong, deep breathing are all solutions that are accessible and work in the short term. Read between the lines: you can relax now. Come on... 10 deep breaths. Now. You can read the document again later.

You've done well. Here are 2 important reasons to manage your stress level well.

First: it has been shown that there is a direct link between the degree of stress and the negative impact on the production of white blood cells and interferons. These two components play a vital role in immune defense. Basically, the more anxious you are, the less effective your immune system will be.

Secondly, in times of intense stress, cortisol and adrenaline are secreted in very large quantities. This is the FIGHT-FLIGHT response of your sympathetic nervous system. When this response is triggered, digestive and immune system functions take a back seat! As a result, viruses easily take hold of you because no one is there to fight them.

What we're going through is stressful and scary. Not only because we are in a pandemic, but also because many of our lifestyle habits have changed rapidly.

Take time for yourself and keep your immune system healthy.
