The following breathing exercise boosts the immune system and helps you to relax:-
This simple yet powerful exercise stimulates and cleanses the body’s lymphatic glands. According to Tony Robbins, the top lymphatic doctors in the world have not found anything to increase the immune system better than flooding oxygen through the body with deep diaphragmatic breathing.
 Breathing in through your mouth expands your chest, yet when you inhale through your nose your abdomen extends causing the diaphragm to pull air to the bottom of your lungs which carries a healthy dose of oxygen into your bloodstream and brain which will also help you to become relaxed. Anthony Robbins teaches inhaling on a ratio of 1 holding for 4 and exhaling for 2. The ratio is the guide.
So if you slowly inhale for example to the count of 4
hold your breath for the count of 16
then exhale very slowly through your mouth to the count of 8.
Repeat this exercise 10 times.
Simply find a number that you are comfortable with and build the ratio gradually.
If you do this exercise three times a day you and your immune system will benefit immensely.
