How to Take Care of Your Thoughts to Boost Immunity

It is easy right now to get caught up in the panic and fear of what is happening globally with the pandemic. 🦠

Those of you in the Manifestation Magic community will know how important it is to keep your energy positive and your vibrations high. However, it can be challenging to do when you’re scrambling, stocking up on groceries, and every news alert is another pandemic warning or update.

Okay. Just breathe. πŸ’†πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

I want to remind you today of the importance of keeping your immune system strong with the carefully directed energy of your thoughts.

I want to remind you that stress and fear-based emotions only serve to lower your immunity and make you more susceptible to illness. 😷

Your thoughts πŸ’­ affect your immune system. The mind-body connection is real. It is being studied by scientists πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸ”¬ all the time, and their results are becoming more and more tangible as research begins to reveal the link between your mind 🧠 and your emotional state and health.

What Is The Immune System?

Our immune system is made up of organs, tissues, cells and cell products that work together to protect us against viruses, unhealthy bacteria, fungi, and parasites and fight harmful substances such as pathogens that cause infection and disease .

The immune system consists of a complex network of billions of cells that travel through the blood. These cells defend our body against antigens such as bacteria, viruses, and cancerous cells. The main types of immune cells are white blood cells.

Simply put, when we are stressed for long periods of time, the way our immune system works naturally is suppressed, which means we become more susceptible to illness. Stress reduces the ability of our immune system to fight infection or disease.

When we are stressed, the immune system’s ability to fight antigens is reduced. That is why we are more susceptible to infections.

When stress is your default, high levels of the stress hormone cortisol circulate in the bloodstream for extended periods of time. This creates chaos in your body.

Cortisol can suppress the smooth running of your digestive system, create inflammatory conditions and lower your immunity in general.


How to manage your thoughts to strengthen immunity

Changing your thinking habits can greatly reduce your stress levels. Experiencing low vibrational emotions such as fear, anger, stress and worry only serves to disrupt your thoughts, your hormones and lower your immunity.

Creating and maintaining a healthy balance in your body’s systems depends on your healthy outlook on life.

This does not mean that you cannot feel an appropriate response to what is happening in the world. Things feel scary right now for most of us.

There is uncertainty about this pandemic and how it will play out. Fear is one of our oldest survival mechanisms. It helps us avoid danger now and in the future.

The problem is that feeling afraid or anxious doesn’t always help us live, sometimes it makes it worse.

If our well-being is not in immediate danger, we do not need to feed a thought cycle of fear or anxiety, because all it does is weaken us.

During this period of self-isolation and quarantine for much of the world, we do not need to be in a constant state of fear. We can rationalize certain things, such as the fact that if we are staying away from others and practicing good hygiene we are likely to stay well.

So instead of worrying endlessly about whether or not you might get sick, take a deep breath, stop and remember that you can control a lot of your own health.

Feeling anxious about the uncertainty of things will create negativity, but remembering to take care of your health, wash your hands 🀲🏽 and stay calm will lead you to positivity. Your mind will begin to move more naturally in the direction of positivity once you realize how much better it feels.

In other words, teach your body to relax rather than stress. When stress is the norm, the body forgets what it feels like to be relaxed and instead only remembers how to be stressed.

Positive emotions improve the immune system by increasing the immune cells that respond to invasion by foreign viruses or bacteria.
