The world is upside down these days with the corona virus floating around everywhere. It’s been with us for many months now and I, for one, can’t wait for everything to get back to normal. Seems that won’t happen until we get a vaccine on the market. Who knows how long that will take?
Different countries have taken different approaches to fight the pandemic. Most countries began with strict lock-downs with my birth country, Sweden, being the outlier, having very few restrictions. Increasingly, it seems doing it the Swedish way is the most reasonable approach given the second waves of the virus surging in countries that locked down. Sweden is not experiencing any second waves, but the virus is still there, just to a much lesser degree. Whatever the approach, the virus is here to stay and you should take every precaution to stay safe, not to mention survive the virus without any complications. Obviously, washing your hands often and wearing masks when social distancing isn’t possible is crucial, but there’s more.
With the pandemic taking over our lives, most people have realized how vulnerable they are to random health threats. Well, some are A LOT more vulnerable than others; namely, those with a weak immune system.
SIGNS YOU HAVE A WEAK IMMUNE SYSTEM:
- You’re frequently under a lot of stress, be it from work or personal problems.
- Getting lots of colds and/or never quite getting rid of your cold.
- Stomach issues, including frequent constipation, gas or diarrhea.
- You’re often tired despite sleeping enough.
- Your wounds take forever to heal.
- Having lots of infections every year.
