Mental health and immunity are closely linked. Mental health issues like stress, anxiety, and depression can weaken the immune system. Stress can suppress immunity.
The COVID-19 pandemic, social isolation and unhealthy lifestyle choices contribute to weaken the immune system. Taking care of both mental and physical well-being is essential for maintaining a strong immunity.
