The past few months have been a reminder of the importance of staying well. The #Corona Virus has changed our lives forever and reminded us that our health is our wealth. With several restrictions lifted, it's still important to be mindful of ways to boost our #immune system. Here are a few simple tips:
WASH YOUR HANDS
Remember to wash your hands regularly, throughout the day, with soap to remove #germs. Germs can travel into the body through the eyes, nose, and mouth and make us very sick. Therefore, try not to touch your face.
While multitasking may appear to be a way to accomplish several tasks, it can cause more stress. Take time to prioritize your daily responsibilities and don't take on more than you can handle. Don't be afraid to say no. This will empower you to feel more at ease and allow you to have time for yourself.
"The body's immune system is like any other system of the body. Each of them has a vital function for the human host." - Dr. Anthony Fauci
MAINTAIN YOUR WEIGHT
If you haven't already done so, start buying your favorite fruits and vegetables. I also would encourage you to join a fitness program like ours which is mainly focused on #WeightLoss and maintaining it over there. So what are you waiting for? Get fit, meet new friends, and soak up some Vitamins.
GET SOME Z's
Without sufficient sleep, your body makes fewer cytokines, a type of protein that targets infection and #inflammation, effectively creating an immune response. #Cytokines are both produced and released during sleep causing a double whammy if you skimp on shut-eye.
WRAP IT UP
I hope you find these tips helpful. As a bonus, keep in mind this Marianne Williamson quote:
"Every act of kindness on your part is a boost to your own immune system"
