The most effective anti-illness strategy is the most basic: Reduce your exposure. Stay mindful of contaminated environments, and try to minimize the contamination we spread to others and wash your hands.
Eating for Wellness
Even if we do our best to avoid contamination, viruses still manage to creep into our lives. Luckily, we each have an innate defense force designed to protect us. But our immune system is only as strong as the materials we use to construct it. And our primary building blocks come from food. Stay away from refined carbohydrates, sugars, and processed foods.
We tend to think of exercise as a way to keep fit, but regular workouts can also help strengthen our body’s disease-fighting powers. Walk, run, swim, bike, lift weights, just keep moving!
Rest and Sleep
When we’re busy, it’s hard to take time for rest. But if we fail to make sleep a priority, it can cause us to lose productivity in the long run. Lack of sleep can lead to higher levels of stress hormones and inflammation.
Seven to nine hours of sleep each night for an adult is a key for good health.
Think Good Thoughts
Improving our psyche is proven to have the ability to enhance immune system strength and response.
Strong Minds, Strong Bodies!
