Are you sick of being sick? Well, aren’t we all? As soon as the cold weather sets in, so do the colds in your bodies. However, there still is hope: enhancing our immune system in order to win every battle against viruses. But how do we do that? There is certainly a great effort needed, and the results are slightly delayed, but it will all be worth it in the end. Here are a few suggestions to boost your immune system:
A healthy diet means a healthy body. We say that because if we eat vegetables, fruits, seeds, wholegrain and whole wheat products, use pressed oils and so on, our body will have received its necessary natural intake of vitamins, nutrients and antioxidants. Since food is actually the best medicine you will ever receive, you will feel better and your immune system will as well.
Melatonin does more than make us sleepy. It also has an important role in our immune system, thus we can deduce that even one sleepless night can have major impact on our immunity. Sleep at least 7 hours daily in order to help your body heal, because it only has the opportunity to do this while you sleep peacefully.
Exercise is one of the main factors that improve our immune system. Exercising regularly has a positive effect on our entire body; be careful though, don’t push your boundaries all of the sudden because this might actually decrease your immune system. Instead of doing this, push your limits by a minute or so every day.
Stress management is something you should master if you want to be healthy. Long periods of stressful activities can harm our entire body, so make sure you either exercise (but do something you actually like), practice yoga, meditation or have weekly massages in order to keep yourself on track.
