    Simple

    Eating healthily, drinking lots of water and getting a good sleep will all support your immune system. As will keeping calm and relaxing.
    'In a series of remarkable studies over 20 years at Carnegie Mellon University, volunteers were exposed to the cold virus (using nose drops) and then quarantined for observation. The researchers found that people who reported less stress in their lives were less likely to develop cold symptoms' (full article in the NY Times link)
    So yes, we can say 'Thank you for the music'!
