Have you ever noticed that there is more prevalence of getting sick when you’re taking time off as opposed to when you’re in your routine and somewhat stressed out?
While research on this topic is inconclusive, some researchers believe that the stress response in the body generates higher immune system functioning, which increases white blood cell count and circulatory response, as well as secretion of hormones like adrenaline. Because your body is on red alert, your defenses are more vigilant and your body is more likely to fight off viruses and bacteria.
But all this comes at a cost. Bodies can withstand only so much stress before they break down. While vacations are a chance to recharge your batteries, slight changes in routine can make stressed out bodies more susceptible to illness.
