The key to never getting sick

There are plenty of secrets, but the secret to good health is not one of them; it’s more common sense. Everyone knows the basics of how to stay healthy by avoiding contact with bacteria and viruses at school or work, but these twelve steps will change your life into a better living human being.

Get plenty of vitamin D. Many people don’t seem to be taking their vitamins. Deficiencies in vitamin D can lead to many symptoms, including poor bone growth, cardiovascular problems, and a weak immune system which leaves you susceptible to sickness.

Eat vegetables―the green leafy kind. These vegetables are rich in other vitamins that help you keep a good balanced diet and support a healthy immune system.

Stay active. Make sure you are not just being lazy on a day to day basis. A great idea is to exercise occasionally; you don’t have to do a full workout, but just going for a walk three times a week can keep your figure looking great and trim.

Go to sleep! This is one of the most important steps for staying healthy and having a strong immune system. You should be getting at least eight hours of sleep per night; this gives you a greater resistance to viruses. People who sleep less are much more likely to get sick and even stressed during the day because of their drowsy bodies and tired muscles.

People below 21 should not drink alcohol. Alcohol intake damages your body’s dendritic cells; over time, this can increase your exposure to bacterial and viral infections.

Don’t overwork yourself. Everyone need a break once in a while. Sometimes you need to calm down and relax; if you try to do everything at once, you’ll stress yourself out, and a high stress level can actually cause physical illness.

Add color to you everyday meals. Eat a variety of foods, including fruits and veggies. Cooking with all these can help with you vitamin C.

Drinking green tea is really good for your health.

Vaccinate. You should get a flu vaccine every six months and other vaccines as necessary.

Practice good hygiene. This will help limit your exposure to germs and viruses. Shower daily, wash your hands before eating or making food, and cover your mouth and nose with a tissue, instead of your arm, when you’re coughing or sneezing.

Keep your daily items personal. Don’t let other people use your toothbrush, towels, utensils, drinking glasses, et cetera.

Remember to repay your body. Your body never stops working to keep you alive and well. The least you can do is fill it with healthy foods, take it easy when it needs a rest and keep it clean.
