Livewell Assited Living

Age affects our bodies in many ways, including weakening our immune systems. 

While it’s important to maintain a healthy lifestyle and keep your immune system strong when you are young, it becomes even more important as you age. In fact, respiratory infections, including pneumonia and influenza, are the leading causes of death for people over the age of 65, so, as a senior, keeping your immune system strong is absolutely essential. Check out our latest blog to learn about the immune boosting tips that our in home care experts in Durham have already gone over. Keep reading to learn more:

#3. Reduce stress in your life. 

Stress can affect your health negatively in so many ways, and it can even suppress your immune system. Take steps to reduce stress in your life. Take a yoga class, learn a new hobby or simply take a few minutes to just sit and relax — all of these things can help you reduce stress.

#4. Make exercise a priority. 

Exercise will not only keep you strong and reduce your risk of falling, it will also minimize your stress! Even a small amount of moderate exercise, like going for a short walk, can make a huge difference in your health and strengthen your immune system.

#5. Look on the bright side.

A positive attitude can go a long way, and it can even boost the feel-good hormones in the brain, called endorphins. Even if you aren’t feeling overly positive or chipper, smile! When you smile, it actually tricks your body into thinking that you are happy!
