During the cold season and at any other time viruses can spread from person to person. Infection may enter through an individual's body through the eyes, nose or mouth. In order to minimise the spread of infection, it is advisable to keep away from individuals with a cold virus and it is vital to wash hands consistently during the day and to abstain from touching the face area after touching surfaces.
When your immune system is compromised and you are feeling run down, you are twice as likely to pick up infections. In general, eating well, resting, and exercising on a regular basis is fundamental for everyone and especially to the older adult.
Physical activity has been found to support the microscopic organisms in the gut, which can enable the immune system to work more productively. Attempting a blend of cardiovascular exercise such as strolling, running, cycling, yoga and Pilates etc. for 30 minutes, five days per week will be beneficial. For a similar effect three episodes of 10 minutes exercise per day would also be advantageous.
