I couldn't tell you for sure, but all of these things are known to effect your immune system negatively. So many people with cancer or other diseases often seek therapy, meditation, regular massages, and other such things to help heal more quickly and to fight off secondary infections.

Relaxing is always good for you. Try to fit in some relaxation every day!!
