Your Compass MONTHLY
FROM THE DESK OF Ty Wilson
Well, it is hard to believe what has rapidly changed in our world in a matter of weeks. The stock market was on fire and lost 30% of its value. Yet, as of this writing, about half of what it lost has been regained. We still do not have cure for COVID-19, so the question remains: Are we safely returning back to our “new normal”with COVID-19? Will we be wearing masks everywhere? Will this end the all-American handshake? More questions than answers. I understand the need to get our economy going again; however, you have to wonder what the motivations are behind it. There are several theories, such as the states cannot afford the massive unemployment payments with little to no income coming in from various sources like DUIs, traffic tickets, sales tax, and so forth. Is this a smart decision? Only time will tell. I encourage you to always think for yourself and make the best decision for you and your family both medically and financially.

Understandably, people have since picked up new habits to avoid contracting the illness, like washing hands more thoroughly, wearing masks outdoors, and avoiding big crowds. Those are all good precautions, but according to The New York Times, there might be another strategy you can employ year-round to boost your immune system: regular exercise. If that surprises you, you’re not alone! Back in the 1980s, misleading research conducted on marathon participants spread the myth that a tough workout suppresses your immune system, making you more susceptible to illness. However, in recent years, new studies on both mice and humans debunked that theory. In 2014, scientists at Umeå University in Sweden found that elite endurance athletes — the people you’d think would be sick all the time if hard workouts really did reduce immunity — actually took fewer sick days than athletes who exercised less. And in 2005, a study on mice showed that jogging for 30 minutes a day over several weeks made them more likely to survive rodent flu. What’s even more interesting is that according to The New York WHY YOUR WORKOUT ROUTINE MIGHT PROTECT YOU FROM INFECTION CAN EXERCISE STAVE OFF SICKNESS?
