Exercising is a way of life for many people and a vital part of their routine. If working out is something you enjoy, it can quickly come to a halt when you catch a cold or fall victim to the flu. In some instances, working out can improve the immune system and is good when you’re feeling sick. But sometimes being ill means activity needs to be kept to a minimum and exercising can make symptoms worse.

  3. 3. LOOKATYOUR SYMPTOMS If your symptoms are happening from the neck up, you may be clear to work out. Exercise can actually be helpful when experiencing these kinds of signs and clear them up. When you’re experiencing symptoms from the shoulders down, reconsider your workout. Any shortness of breath, abdominal pain or vomiting can be made worse by exercising.   
  4. 4. AVOIDINTENSE WORKOUTSWorking out while your sick can be potentially helpful and make you feel better, but it’s important to take it slow. Keep the exercises moderate and mild to make sure not to overexert yourself. Overdoing it can lead to feeling even worse and too much for the immune system to handle.
  5. 5. DON’TSPREAD YOURILLNESS When you’re sick, it’s very easy to spread your germs. Even when you’re mindful of washing your hands and disinfecting things you touch, you can still get people sick. That’s why it’s important to stay at home or outdoors while working out when you’re sick.   
  6. 6. TAKEITSLOWAFTERWARDSOnce you’re starting to feel better and your symptoms have cleared up, it’s easy to get a little too eager to jump back into things. However, when you’ve recovered for an illness, it’s important to take it slow when you start working out again. As you begin to get back into a routine, slowly reintroduce more activity.
