Get Outside and Away From Social Media for an Immune Booster
Spending too much time on Facebook and other social media platforms can have a detrimental effect on your psychological health, according to a meta-analysispublished in 2020 in the journal Cureus. Reading others’ social media posts can give you the impression that everyone else’s life is better, more interesting and more exciting than your own. That can trigger feelings of sadness.
The fall is a great time to spend more time outside. The leaves are bright on the trees and satisfyingly crunchy under your feet. The (usually) moderate temperatures are a reprieve from the sweltering summer and a gift before the frigid winter. Spending time outside has tremendous health benefits, including boosting your immune system. In addition to improving mental health, sun exposure bolsters vitamin D levels, which help prevent infections.
