What’s a person to do when they’re inundated with constant talk of “pandemic” and “H1N1”? The media buzz is enough to frighten even the toughest of people.
“Get the H1N1 vaccine,” say some. Others argue that the cure may be worse than the virus itself.
Well, whether you do or don’t want to take your chances with the vaccine, why not get more active? Physical activity is proven to boost the immune system and reduce stress--which can weaken a person and leave them open to many forms of disease and illness. Couple exercise with meditation, and you’ve got a winning health combination.
Many people complain they don’t have enough time to exercise and meditate. There just don’t seem to be enough hours in the day. So why not combine the two by practicing martial arts? Most disciplines incorporate intense physical conditioning with some form of meditative practice. Studies have found that people who exercise and meditate are not only healthier, but they’re happier, have more energy, and find it easier to focus than those who don’t.
So no matter what you think about the vaccine or the upcoming flu season, why not take a natural and effective step towards becoming healthier, happier, and less stressed about what may or may not be a future “pandemic”.
