Would you believe it? Simply playing a few games of Cornhole can ward off colds or the flu – even the swine flu. Well, that’s not a scientific claim for Cornhole, but follow us and you’ll see why Cornhole is good for your health – body, mind and soul, too, we think.

Lots and lots of research has shown that a healthy diet and natural sunshine boost our immune system so our bodies are able to fight of the flu, colds, and other germy invaders naturally. The healthy diet includes plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, grains, and steering clear of processed and fried foods. Sugar, especially, is accused of hindering our immune system. And by sugar, we mean processed, white, refined sugar found in colas, candy bars, etc. The natural sugar found in fruit is good for us.

And sunshine is good for us because that’s how our bodies manufacture Vitamin D. And it is Vitamin D that boosts our immune system and lets us fight off, or avoid, colds and flus, not to mention attack and kill other germs that cross our paths.

Yes, you can take artificially manufactured Vitamin D supplements, and we’re not here to say those are good or bad, but they’re certainly not as fun as playing Cornhole, now are they? Especially if you WIN the games of Cornhole.

Have you ever noticed that if you’re feeling a little blah physically or mentally that a few minutes in the sun can revive you? Probably you’ve even craved being outdoors sometimes. It feels good to step outside, close your eyes, tip your head back and let the sun’s warming rays bathe your face for a few moments. Just don’t stare at the sun… that tends to have serious negative effects on the eyes!

If your going to be out in the sun for a long time, whether or not you choose to use sunscreen is up to you. But for a few minutes of Vitamin producing basking in the golden sunshine, dont hinder that process by slathering on chemicals designed to block the rays.

So what do Cornhole and Vitamin D have to do with each other? Well, unless it’s a freezing, snowy, rainy day where outdoor Cornhole isn’t an option, playing Cornhole outside in the fresh air and sunshine helps your body build immunities while you have fun. Not only is your body making Vitamin D as you toss 3-pointers, but youre also getting some exercise and having fun with friends and family. All of these help keep your body and mind healthy. So, with some hearty games of outdoor Cornhole, you should find a lesser need for cold and flu medicine, not to mention doctor’s appointments where you have to sit for an hour in a room full of other sick people.

And you dont have to lose hours and pay from work. Well, unless you play hooky to play Cornhole, but thats up to you. Hmmm. Cornhole or the doctors office? Pass the cornbags, please! A Survival Guide Click Here!
