Don't 'Worry Yourself Sick' This Winter
Date:12/11/2008

g that time can make the difference between shaking it off or actually getting sick. If you have the chance to take a break, do so; if possible take a preemptive sick day to rest (or get extra sleep if you can't take off work), drink lots of fluids and eat well.

3. No crash diets. Winter is not a good time to start a restrictive diet. "Dieting is not only a bad way to lose weight, it's also a source of major changes in stress hormone levels," says Dr. Wheeler. "The best thing you can do is maintain a basically healthy diet and go easy on holiday excesses and alcohol. Make sure to take a multi-vitamin and try a black elderberry supplement, such as Sambucol, which is the original elderberry product that has been clinically studied and is rich in antioxidants, which are thought to be beneficial in supporting immune system functions."

4. Think Positively. "If you wake up in a bad mood, your stress hormone levels will be elevated before your feet even hit the floor - making you more vulnerable to the germs you're exposed to all day long," says Dr. Wheeler. She suggests taking a moment when you wake up to think of one or two good things you have to look forward to (instead of all the hassles you may have to deal with).

5. Get Plenty of Exercise. According to Dr. Wheeler, research shows that regular exercisers tend to have a much lower incidence of colds and flu than people who don't exercise. Exercise helps keep stress hormone levels in check, which can help strengthen immunity. "Don't let your busy schedule keep you from getting in a good walk or gym workout - you'll stay stronger and more relaxed if you continue (or begin) a routine of regular moderate exercise," says Dr. Wheeler.
