Positivity boosts immunity against Covid-19
Having positive mindset and being active are essential in surviving the Covid-19 pandemic. Positive thoughts and emotions energize all expressions of our genes through the immune system that could enhance our resistance to the virus.
Epigenetic or development of new characters shows how we react to a situation and can determine the expression of our genes. Positive thoughts activate nourishing compounds and hormones that promote health and well-being.
Stress, fear, and nutrition are vital environment factors that can adversely affect genetic expression and make us vulnerable to disease at this time of community quarantine, and we hope it will be lifted soon so we could move forward in our normal lives.
God created us and He could destroy His creation anytime if we persistently disobey His words. Constant prayers especially in churches as houses of worship (let them be opened), meditation, and doing what is just can nurture positivity and spare us from disasters. — PERCIVAL B. ALIPIT, Baguio City
