What would you recommend doing to stay in shape when you are sick?
- Drink a lot of water and eat foods rich in antioxidants and vitamins such as leafy greens and citrus fruits
- Don’t exercise if your symptoms are severe, take it easy until you recover
- Move as much as possible. If you’re not seriously ill, do chores around the house or take a walk outside - staying in bed makes you more tired while being active speeds up recovery and relieves congestion
- Do mild-moderate intensity exercises like walking, stretching, yoga or hand weights
