Sleeping for 8-9 hours daily allows our body to rest our organs. Providing proper rest to yourself can boost your mood, health and immunity.

  • Take steps to avoid infection, such as washing your hands frequently and cooking meats thoroughly.

De-stress yourself by meditating, exercising or listening to music. Stress causes our body to have unbalanced blood pressure levels, adversely affecting our immunity.
