“Is it Really THAT Obvious?” – I always have my ears open.
You just never know when you hear something that pulls you in.
It’s what happened to me when I was sitting next to a young man who was discussing the fact that his dad was quite sick with a cold, and what he said next stuck with me.
He said, “My dad is just getting better now and obviously my mom now has it and I’ll get it soon too.” Obviously? Really? To him those words were truth.
To me, they couldn’t be further from the truth.
Getting sick, or being sick has very little to do with being exposed to a virus, and in fact is tied directly to how well your immune system is working that day.
Every day you are exposed to viruses and bacteria that have the potential to cause you harm, and every second of every day, your immune system is working hard to fight and keep you healthy. When you cause your body to be weakened, through a lack of sleep, poor nutrition, high stress or interference to your brain-body connection, which controls your immune response, then yes…getting sick is possible.
But care for your body, look after your requirements for a healthy body, and know that you have the innate capacity to stay healthy, even when dad is down for the count.
