June 30, 2023 2:22 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

We all want to stay healthy and avoid getting sick during flu season or throughout the year, don’t we? I don’t know a single person who fantasizes being surrounded by used tissues while watching the highlights of the reunion they’re missing play out on instagram, “What?! Jenny finally got bangs?!”

Well, one essential aspect of maintaining our health is by strengthening our immune systems. A robust immune system not only helps in warding off common illnesses but also contributes to overall well-being. Think of your immune system as your inner superhero, protecting you while looking great in a cape.

In this blog post, we’ll discuss a few practical tips on how to boost your immune system and avoid getting sick now and throughout the year.

Eat Right to Stay Healthy – Eating a balanced diet of fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains helps keep your body strong and energized. I mean sure, a candy bar tastes great but so can an apple covered in caramel…minus the caramel;)

It’s also vital to ensure you’re drinking enough water – staying hydrated is essential to keeping your body functioning at its best. If you’re looking for an extra boost, you may want to add immune-boosting supplements like zinc or vitamin C, which can also help! Be sure to talk to your doctor before starting any new supplement routine.

Get Enough Sleep – Lack of sleep can significantly impact our bodies’ ability to fight infections and illnesses. Aim for at least seven hours of sleep a night — anything less than that can weaken your immune system and leave you vulnerable to catching more colds. Experts suggest cutting screen time at night, including TV and social media scrolling. As comforting as the Gilmore girls or your favorite character’s chattering can be as you drift off to sleep, that blue light emitted from screens can interfere with our natural sleep cycle and make it harder for us to get the rest we need.

Exercise Regularly – Exercise does more than give us something fun to do — it helps keep our bodies strong and healthy by releasing endorphins which make us feel good physically and mentally. Try to find ways to get moving every day. It can be as simple as a walk around the neighborhood, stopping for the occasional gossip, or a more challenging hike in nature.There are a lot of ways to get moving, even right at home. There are a plethora of fun exercise programs for every type of person online these days. You could be learning how to salsa your way through cooking dinner in no time!

Keeping yourself healthy doesn’t have to be complicated, in fact, it can even be really fun and satisfying, mentally and physically. Doing these simple things can help strengthen your immune system so that your body will be ready when those pesky germs come calling.
