Feeling good at 8,600 feet above sea level

I am visiting my hometown for the first time in six months. My city Bogota is located in the middle of the Andes Mountains range at 2,650 meters above sea level (A little more than 8,600 feet).

Having lived in South Florida for more than thirteen years, I am not longer accustomed to the high altitude , and the relatively cold temperatures of the city. The temperature ranges from 10 to 18 Degrees Celsius (50 to 65 Farenheit) .

In the past I would almost invariably catch a cold within a couple of days of being here, and I would also get bronchitis attacks . But not this time , I have been here for a week already and I am feeling very good. No signs of bronchitis or a cold, I can breathe very well and I am even going for my daily walks in the morning. I am really feeling good .

I firmly believe this is due to an stronger immune system and improved overall health. All of this thanks to the changes I made in my diet and eating habits along with more physical activity, and a more responsible approach to a balanced life .

The following link describes what prompted me to make those adjustments: Compelling reasons to make positive changes

I know I still have a long way to go, but this is the best I have felt in a long time!

What kind of positive changes have you made recently?
