Feel Better Sooner

It’s probably safe to say that the last thing on your mind when you’re feeling under the weather is keeping up with your daily exercise routine. In some scenarios, however, light to moderate activity may help you feel better. Here are the exercises that qualify, plus the ones you may want to avoid the next time you get the sniffles.

  • Walking stimulates you to take deep breaths and can help open sinus passages.
  • Running is a natural decongestant.
  • One study found that people who simply listened to 50 minutes of dance music had less cortisol and more cold-fighting antibodies.
  • Lifting weights can contribute to sinus pressure and headaches.
  • Stay away from the gym if you are experiencing cold or flu symptoms. Germs can spread easily on machines and in the locker room.
