Mindfulness by Miles  

What do you associate the cold season with? 


Hot cocoa or coffee? 


Miles Everson, CEO of MBO Partners, says while the cold season is where lots of fun activities and gatherings take place, it can also be associated with colds, coughs, and chills. 

He states during these times, almost everyone he knows is complaining about either having a fever, a pounding head cold, or a flu… and with the incoming transition to a new season, he’s certain people’s immune systems will have to readjust to the weather once again. 

Taking Care of Your Body’s Internal Defense System 

Do you know someone who likes feeling sluggish or depleted at the end of each day? 

No one, right? 

However, if you don’t take care of your well-being and your immune system gets weak, Everson says you’ll not only feel sluggish but also unable to do your best at work. 

What’s worse? 

You’ll feel frustrated because you can’t show up for the people you love and care about.

It’s no secret that having a healthy immune system is vital as it helps fight off illnesses and boosts your overall health. So, how can you ensure your immune system is working at its optimal level?

The answer to the question above is not simply to take vitamins and other food supplements. Boosting your immune system entails a whole lot of other things too, such as exercise, sleep, nutritious diet, etc. 

Below are Everson’s top 5 tips to enhance his immunity. He hopes by adopting these tips, you’ll also feel better and stronger, and have more energy to get your to-do list done. 

  1. Get moving. 

Exercise is fundamental to immunity building because the human body is designed to move regularly each day. 

So, even when it’s cold and it feels good to sleep in especially during weekends, encourage yourself to get up and get moving! 

Find ways to get your muscles to work. Whether that be a brisk walk with your dog or a fitness class like indoor cycling or yoga, make sure to stay physically active no matter the weather. Your body will thank you for that. 

  1. Check your gut. 

Did you know poor gut health is a fundamental reason your immunity is off? 

Having healthy gut bacteria helps your immune system know the difference between healthy and unhealthy cells. If your gut health is not in good condition, it won’t be able to do its job. 

So, for those of you who want to maintain a healthy gut, eat food rich in probiotics. These include yogurt, sauerkraut, leafy greens, and oats. 

  1. Get your Zzz

Everson cannot emphasize this enough. He says as you grow older, you have to get good, quality sleep

He states he understands getting enough sleep is easier said than done for some. Take for example his son, who currently has 2 daughters under the age of 2, plus a new puppy. Since his son loves spending time with his children and taking care of their new pet, sleep isn’t always on top of his priority list. 

However, as a father himself, Everson always reminds his son to try as hard as he can to get enough sleep. 

You should take that piece of advice too, whether you’re a parent, a student, or a busy professional! 

Everson recommends you get 8 hours of sleep as this will allow your body to recuperate and be in a better state to fight off diseases. In fact, research has found that sleep not only helps your brain consolidate learning and memory recognition but also strengthens your immune memory. 

This means the work of your immune system during deep sleep reinforces it to remember how to recognize and fight off dangerous antigens. 

  1. Check your stress levels. 

Stress is one of the top reasons for low immunity, and it’s not surprising why. With countless tasks, pressure at work, or strain in relationships, you may sometimes feel overwhelmed and eventually get stressed out. 

The problem with this is stress creates inflamed cells and slows your body’s response to foreign invaders, leaving you susceptible to various diseases. Everson combats this by doing yoga or journaling. 

If silence and stillness don’t work for you, you can try what Everson’s daughter does instead—having a midday dance party to boost her serotonin levels. 

The key here is to do whatever makes you relax. Your immune system will thank you later on for doing that. 

  1. Eat “superfoods.” 

You’re probably familiar with the statement, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” 

You can actually eat your way to a healthier immune system! Some “superfoods” you should start incorporating into your diet include:

  • Citrus fruits
  • Spinach
  • Broccoli
  • Garlic
  • Green tea
  • Turmeric
  • Ginger

According to Everson, he personally likes living in Austin, Texas because it gives him access to multiple “juice lands” where he can add any of the items listed above into a smoothie or juice shot. 

He encourages you to get your smoothie game on too as the weather begins to warm up soon. He says this will help you to not only prepare for the summer season but also boost your immunity. 

There you have it—Everson’s top 5 tips to keep his immune system on top of its game despite seasonal transitions! 

We hope you’ll adopt at least one, if not all, of these tips into your everyday life to get your immunity back up to par. 

If you’ve successfully incorporated these into your schedule, let us know by leaving a comment or giving other suggestions on how you’re working to strengthen your immune system. Together, let’s build our way to better immunity!

High-performance businesses are run by people who think and act differently. 

In other words, these are people who are high-performing individuals

Companies and individuals of this kind have found ways to escape the grind of commoditization and competition by focusing on the RIGHT goals. 

High-performing businesses and individuals are also “return driven” businesses and “career driven” individuals. They conscientiously develop unique capabilities and resources that allow them to deliver offerings in ways no other firm or individual can. 

Every Friday, we’ll publish tips and insights from MBO Partners and The I Institute’s “The Business Builder Daily” newsletter. 

These will help you gain knowledge on the things that Miles Everson, the CEO of MBO Partners, often talks about regarding the future of the workforce.
