This is something we all need to remember in our everyday lives… Stress and negativity will lower your immune system and you become vulnerable to coughs, colds, flu, infections etc. When your immune system is compromised it takes longer for infections to heal. Those with Lymphedema must be especially wary of this, as their Lymphatics are compromised too.. This can lead to cellulitis which we all know can be a major problem. What helps you deal with stress?? Some suggestions are exercise, meditation, yoga, mindfulness, swimming, fun hobbies, talking with friends, healthy diet and last but not least sleep and rest… How do you deal with stress??? Please add your suggestions to the comments… Have a great weekend… And remember if you have no control over it do not stress about it!!!
