Question: Winter is a tough time for me. It seems like whenever anyone around me is sick, I get it. What can I do?
When you’re exposed to colds and flus, your immune system requires a certain amount of energy to fight off the illness. If you don’t let yourself slow down and properly rest during these winter months, you could be depleting your necessary reserve of that energy and therefore weakening your resistance to illness. The fact is there is less energy to go around during the colder winter months and some people hover closer to their threshold than others. Thus, it might be necessary for you to consider how you spend your energy and conserve more of it.
