Could it be a wake up call?

Colds are so prevalent this time of year. I wonder if they aren't a sort of wake up call of sorts. By that I mean that we need to look at our diet and see if we are getting foods in it that have zinc and Vitamin C in them. Why because those strengthen the immune system. Onions, and citrus fruits for vitamin C. And, here is a list of foods with zinc in them: Pumpkin seeds, oysters, cashews, mushrooms, wheat, lentils, chickpeas, wild rice, sunflower seeds, beef, maple syrup, mung beans, pecans, crab, peanuts, walnuts, barley, cocoa bean, bratwurst, almonds, cheese and masa. And we need to be sure we are washing our hands after we use the restroom and airing out the house once in awhile. I know that I let the house get closed up and I am into keeping it warm and I don't air out. The old germs seem to linger. What are your thoughts on this one?

healthy dietary habit is necessary, I think exercise is much more important.

It is but if you don't have foods in your diet that have protein and so forth you won't have the energy to exercise.

Why wouldn't it be? Something that opens you to see something that needs to be done.

I think it is so easy to catch colds if you stay in a lot and then go out..the body is not very resistant to colds then. I have not had a cold in years generally dont get them. But I have had some nasty sorts of coughs over the last few years.

I just aired out my house this past week after it being closed up all summer with the only air being from the air conditioning. It was so nice to have a house that smelled fresh once again.
