Tips from the Team
Illness and Physical Activity
It’s that time of year again when it seems the easiest thing to catch is a cold. If your luck is like mine, an illness makes an unwanted visit at the most inconvenient time. This time for me was right when I had to move. The question is, should I rest my body or continue being active? Well, it depends. Of course listen to your doctor, but also listen to your body. You know you better than anyone else. If you have a fever, trouble breathing, or just feel down right exhausted, it’s probably better to rest and give your body the resources to repair itself. If you don’t feel short of breathe or have a fever, maybe continue to work out. The extra movement may even help loosen the congestion. Think if your cold is above the neck, work out. Below the neck, rest. Continue to eat healthy foods, stay hydrated, and you’ll have that sickness evicted in no time!
