As we continue to wage war against the spread of Coronavirus, precautions like maintaining at least one-meter distance from others when we find ourselves outside, practicing social distancing, self-isolating when we think we might have symptoms and washing our hands remain super crucial and essential.
It, however, doesn’t end with the above, because most of us have had to deviate from what typically is our norm and we have had to stay indoors, there is the need to examine ways in which the immune system can be strengthened, of course, we need to examine ways we can entertain ourselves to help put boredom at bay. Here are 4 helpful tips on how you can boost your immune system.
- Watch what you eat- simply because we spend most of our time indoors, it is easy for us to binge eat especially unhealthy foods and research has shown that when your gut is healthy, it tends to stave off illnesses faster. Eat healthily!
- Find ways to stay active/ exercise- it is very easy to fall into a pattern of waking up, eating, and sleeping as we find fewer things to entertain us daily, however, studies have shown that working out helps our body detect foreign bodies easily because antibodies and white blood cells circulate better when you engage in exercises.
- Sleep well- it won’t come as a shock that even as we are indoors, people do not have great sleep patterns. Sleep in itself helps the body boost its immune system and inadequate sleep would only heap stress on your body.
- 4. Stay hydrated- not only is this one important healthy skin regimen but hydrating also helps your body fight off toxins as it helps your body fortify its immune system.
To stay entertained, you can select DIY projects to engage yourself daily on YouTube, binge on your favorite programs, organize family photographs, host a video conference with your friends to catch up on jolly gists or even join a social media challenge!
