Everyone gets "under the weather" at some point. Here's what's important to remember.
We should all strive to have a strong immune system supported by the kind of lifestyle that makes us almost impenetrable to any bug, virus or bacteria that comes along. Healthy people do tend to get sick less often and when they do get sick, they tend to recover faster and have fewer, less severe symptoms.
The Covid-19 pandemic is a great example. We've seen abundant evidence that some people were exposed to the virus and never even got sick! Some people barely had symptoms and some people did get sick but recovered very quickly.
Personally, my goal is always to be the person who can come into contact with any virus or germ that comes along and not even notice becuase my immune system takes care of it under the surface.
While I think everyone should strive to have a rock solid immune system so that they don't have to live in fear of germs, the reality is that almost everyone get's worn down or "under the weather" occasionally. Here are some valuable things to remember the next time you get sick:
Your body will come out on the other side stronger and healthier. Your immune system learns from getting exposed to germs and it's good to practice battling off invaders with the occasional cold or flu. The old saying is true: "If it doesn't kill you, it makes you stronger".
Take this as a time of self-reflection. If you're finding yourself getting sick, ask yourself if you've been taking care of yourself well enough? Maybe you got sick and there was nothing you could have done to prevent it, but I seriously doubt it. Has your diet been incredible? Have you been taking all the necessary supplements? Have you been pushing yourself too hard? How's your quality of sleep? Are you "burning the candle at both ends"? Are you managing stress well enough? Did that sugary birthday weekend destroy your immune system and now you're sick a week later?
Some researchers and microbiologists believe that new viruses can act like software updates for our bodies. A virus is like a little packet of genetic material, and it's possible that when your body comes into contact with this new genetic material, it's like upgrading your body's software so that you are better able to handle the environment around you.
In conclusion, you should give yourself every advantage in maintaining a strong and resilient immune system so that you will get sick less often and bounce back faster. When that occasional time of getting worn down and feeling sick does come along, give yourself some grace and learn from it.
