Today I have achieved 50 press-ups in 1 go. I am well pleased indeed. Prior to the challenge, I struggled to do 20. Since using Wim Hof's breathing method prior to doing the set of press-ups, I have gradually increased the number in a set. As with everything, it takes time to build the numbers up.
The Forgotten Immune System
Our immune system is there to help and protect us, not harm us. Unless we do nothing to prevent it from working in our best interest, it will continue to be our lifelong friend and healthy companion.
We are all born with an immune system that is in place to help us fight pathogens, ie bacteria, viruses, fungi. Therefore it is our responsibility to look after this natural first line of defence.
We can do this by making sure that we
• Eat the right food
• Have enough rest
• Sleep well
• Limit/avoid toxic substances (physical & sub-conscious) in our environment
• Exercise appropriately
Our immune system can be our friend or foe. We keep it as our friend by doing the things that keep us healthy. Those healthy things keep our immune system strong, and doing unhealthy things weakens our immune system.
Doing the right things helps our immune system stay strong.
Doing the wrong things weakens it.
Be kind to your immune system and it will be kind to you.
