Boosting Your Immunity
During these unusual times it’s especially important to build a strong immune system. Below I’ve listed a variety of options to help you maintain optimal wellness throughout your mind and body.
Be sure to sleep at least 7-9 hours a night. Sleep encourages your body to fight infection along with reducing inflammation.
Eat plenty of fresh, organic and varied fruits, vegetables and healthy proteins. Load up on vitamin rich foods such as citrus fruits, berries, carrots, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, beets, garlic, ginger, onion, turmeric, squash, spinach and almonds.
Cut down on sugar, processed foods, fried food and alcohol.
Drink plenty of non-sugary liquids such as water, green and herbal teas. I recommend drinking mineral water for better hydration and even adding fruits and vegetables to your water for extra nutrients. Examples are cucumber, lemon, orange and berries.
Allow time, each day for self care. Stress can really deplete your immune system so having practices in place to release this stress can be so beneficial. Meditation, yoga, a warm bath, hot tea, a walk in nature, time spent with loved ones can all help to calm your nervous system while boosting your immunity!
