Getting sick? No thanks, not even during cold/flu season

I get sick maybe 1-2 times a year with the common cold that lasts 1-3 days. If I’ve gotten the flu, maybe it lasted 3-5 days, and then I would continue as if nothing happened (although the first two days have strong symptoms).

How do I do it?

Easy:

  • Daily natural vitamins and supplements (take your pick, I take 8)
  • Try to sleep as much as possible (minimum 6.5 hours every night)
  • Have one day a week when you sleep 9 hours and recharge your full battery
  • Exercise 3-4 times a week (I do up to 5, depending on my work load)
  • Healthy diet (avoid as much as possible fats, sugars, fried food and excess dairy products) Consume lots of fruits and vegetables
  • My apartment is always clean, there is almost never any dust or dirt accumulated
  • I wash my hands constantly

If I get sick:

  • Rest as much as you can
  • Soups and very light meals
  • Teas and infusions (add ginger, lemon, honey, aloe)
  • Multivitamins every 6-10 hours
  • Take medication only to relieve strong symptoms
  • Sleep as much as possible

It could be genetics, ok. I accept it.
Maybe my immune system is performing at peak capacity.

But the truth is that I have been doing the same all these years, and it does not fail. I get sick and my body recovers over the weekend. Ah, that’s another thing, I get sick on Friday, on Monday I go back to work.

As long as it continues to work, I will continue to do it, and I will continue to say that I don’t get sick because my body is healthy and ready to face external agents.
