Covid-19 has brought the world to a halt and standstill. The usual hustle and bustle of cities and towns is eerily quiet, and the country is in quarantine to prevent the spread of the virus.
This situation has brought our health to our attention. Your body is naturally designed to heal itself and you can naturally strengthen your body’s defences. Here are 5 tips that you can do to boost your immune system today.
Avoid the news
Right now, the news is constantly reporting on the number of deaths and the negative impact it’s had on everything which leaves you in a state of fear and anxiety. That weakens your immune system, an impact you don’t want at this time. Whilst it’s great to stay informed, limit the times you check up on the news and the ‘dose’ of negativity.
Though we are under lockdown, you can still exercise once a day. There’s so much evidence linking regular physical activity with good circulation of your cells which influences your immune system. Something as simple as a walk-in nature has a ripple effect on our bodies and mental health.
Drinking plenty of fluids helps flush your system of toxins and prevents a build-up of it in your body. It also helps circulate oxygen to your cells, rejuvenating your body and allowing it to function at a higher level.
Eat the right nutrition
You become what you eat. Look after your body and it will look after you. Foods such as citrus, spinach and broccoli are packed with natural antioxidants that helps your immune system fight infections.
Sleeping helps our bodies restore itself. A lack of sleep can impact our immune system and we are more susceptible to the common cold and viruses. Have a structure in place to ensure you get the right amount of sleep which allows your body rest.
These are very simple but often overlooked. Sometimes when just one of these elements are out of balance, we can feel it in our external world. These are 5 things that you can do right now to naturally boost your immune system at this crucial time.
