It’s winter time. The days are shorter, the temperature is cooler and our environment is generally a little damper and less desirable. It’s also the time of year that many of us express health in less than optimal ways. Whether it’s a bout with the flu or a case of the common cold, not many people would argue the fact that they’d be better off without it!
Consider this: we are constantly surrounded by germs. Year-round, germs are everywhere. They’re on door handles, supermarket trolleys, office equipment and even floating through the air! So if we’re always surrounded by these potentially harmful pathogens, why is that we typically only fall victim to them in the winter months?
Fundamentally it is because our immune system is compromised!
