How is it some people never are sick?

I haven’t called in sick for the last 22 years. Yes, I may have had an accidental cold and sneeze. But that’s about it. Do you know more of them, people who never seem to have their aches and pains, never are ill? How can they do it? I know it roughly and recognised quite a lot from a handy list.

  1. Don’t sit on a chair all the time, keep moving! Just exercise a bit for half an hour a day (even in Europe this is more than average), take the stairs instead of the elevator (even in the tube stations, it may be faster).
  2. Eat healthy building blocks: anti-oxidants, salvestroles (in broccoli)
  3. Stop thinking all the time, worrying is not good! Stress is neither. It undermines your immune system and exhausts the body.
  4. Sleep well. This is the recovery time you need. Not everybody may have to sleep for eight hours, but you need to have a quality sleep.
  5. Invest in your social network: it keeps you healthy and fit. Research has revealed that socially active people don’t have a cold so often. And making other people happy is contageous and causes a chain reaction.
  6. Wash your hands regularly, using soap. I’m sometimes amazed people don’t do this at obvious moments. Did you know that a filler at a fuel station carries even more bacteries than a toilet seat?
I do recognise some of them, and I was surprised to find a couple on them but to be honest: a positive attitude to life is worth a lot!

About joostboers

My passion? Being independent of other people's decisions. I'm horrified with what happens to pensions, or to see that people at relatively are put aside the economy because they simply are too old... at the age of 45+. Do you want to escape this threadmill too? Take action. You can do it.
