Sleep is important. Reading inspirational literature at bedtime can help you relax.
Sleep also plays an important role in boosting the immune system. Rest and sleep keep the immune system running at full force. For example, it is good to go to bed as early as possible (before 10pm) and not at midnight. This also promotes the production and release of melatonin, which, as already mentioned, also helps to boost the immune system as it is effective against inflammation and also protects against oxidative stress. It is best to establish a regular sleep rhythm, i.e. to always go to bed at the same time. The length of sleep should be 7-9 hours for adults. Sleep deprivation leads to a significant reduction in the killing capacity of NK-cells. To promote a good night’s sleep, it is important to spend the last hour or so before bedtime in a relaxing way. If possible, you should avoid watching TV or sitting in front of the computer. Instead, take a hot bath or read an inspiring book. How about the Bible, which is inspiring and improves your mood? Praying before bed also promotes a good night’s sleep.
It is important to implement all the lifestyle factors mentioned if you really want to boost your immune system. So, don’t just implement some of the points, but if possible all of them, as they also affect each other.
To make it easier for you to remember the individual factors, I will again give you the acronyms that will help you remember the individual points.
B (Bewegung) = Exercise
E (Ernährung) = Nutrition
S (Sonne) = Sun
T (Trinken) = Water
L (Luft) = Air
I (Innere Ausgeglichenheit) = Trust
F (Frei von Suchtmitteln) = Temperance
E (Erholung) = Rest
If you follow all this advice, you can be fairly sure that your immune system is so strong that you don’t need to be afraid of any infections. Even if an infection like a cold occurs, your body can overcome it very quickly. I wish all readers good luck, God’s blessings and good health.
