Fall has a second face: rain with companion of depression, books and movies for better mood, thick jersey and something else…  Cough, runny nose, sneeze, fever and chills…that means colds.

The cold is the worst fall feelings  ever! It’s dangerous, but easy to prevent. Cold is the some kind of muck (virus), which attacks immune system when is weak.

If you have: cough, a runny and blocked nose, inflammation of throat, headache and fever – that is too late and you should rest in home for a few days. I’m so sorry.

It means easy training  like active stretching or other movements without huge loads. If you break this border you’re going to bed with fatal condition. You should know, that just after workout you’re weak and expose for colds viruse infection. But during long period of training process immune system is stronger and immunity increases.

Keep adequate ratio between carbohydrates, proteins and fats is priority to healthy. Get a lots of fluids even if you don’t want it.

  4. GET REST AND AVOID STRESS. Sleep well, adequate for quantity of needed sleep. Rest in home if you feel uncomfortable. Don’t stress. Research shows that stress decreases functions of immune system.
