Do something! Just not too little or too much!

I talked about how exercise effects our immune system. Did you know that several studies have shown that when elite runners or rowers were exercising at their peak, around competition time, there was an “impressive increase” in respiratory infections? On the flip side, other studies have shown that frequent brisk walking can reduce the number of sick days by over half within 3-4 months. The ‘too-little exerciser” or the “extreme exerciser” can both be at a higher risk for infections.  Moderate exercising, even a brisk walk, can make a profound positive impact on your health. Any physical activity can help. Don’t wait, it’s as simple as that!!
