Boost your immune system on a busy day at work, you can focus on some immediate, actionable steps:

1. Hydrate: Start your day with a large glass of water and drink water throughout the day. Staying hydrated is crucial for immune function.

2. Healthy Snack: Bring a snack rich in vitamins and antioxidants, such as an apple, a handful of berries, or carrot sticks with hummus.

3. Hand Hygiene: Take a moment to wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water, especially after touching communal surfaces.

4. Short Walk or Stretch: Take a 5-10 minute break to walk around or do some stretching exercises to get your blood flowing and reduce stress.

5. Breathe Deeply: Practice deep breathing exercises to reduce stress and improve oxygen flow. Inhale deeply through your nose, hold for a few seconds, and exhale slowly through your mouth.

6. Sanitize Workspace: Wipe down your desk, keyboard, mouse, and phone with disinfectant wipes to minimize germ exposure.

7. Healthy Lunch: Choose a nutritious lunch with plenty of vegetables, lean protein, and whole grains. Avoid heavy, greasy foods that can make you feel sluggish.

8. Positive Interaction: Have a quick, positive chat with a co-worker to boost your mood and reduce stress.

9. Supplement: If you have them on hand, take a vitamin B, vitamin C, or zinc supplement after consulting with a healthcare professional.

10. Fresh Air: Step outside for a few minutes to get some fresh air and sunlight, if possible. This can invigorate you and provide a quick mental break.

Implementing these quick fixes can help give your immune system a temporary boost and improve your overall well-being during a busy workday.

"If we think of the immune system as a machine, then we are far from even knowing all of its parts." -Bruce Beutler-
