Aren’t we in tough times right now? I really hope you’re keeping safe and healthy amidst this pandemic.
While this remains a threat looming above our heads, we’re slowly and safely transitioning back and forth into society. Back to our jobs, to our meetings, to our hangouts with friends, to our everyday activities before any of this happened. TRYING IS THE KEY WORD. Lord who knows!
While it’s exciting thinking about getting our lives back on track out there, I have a little reminder for you: whatever happens, do not EVER, EVER, EVER let your guard down! Please promise me this.
Repeat after me: your first line of defense against diseases is and will always be your immune system. Think of it as your body’s natural armor.
I can’t stress enough just how important exercising and eating the right nutrition is in our current situation.
This is the most natural way you can protect your body from viruses like Covid-19.
You know what else exercising gives you? Endorphins! Happy hormones because you deserve to feel joy even in these times of uncertainty.
As for your nutrition, I’ll list down some natural immune boosters you should add onto your plate:
- Citrus fruits like oranges and lemons
- Green leafy vegetables
- Nuts & seeds
- Beans & lentils
Remember your body’s armor? Well, a balanced nutrition can amplify your shield against infectious diseases.
Another way to boost your immunity naturally is to get sleep. I am dead serious! Your body needs to rest and recharge so give it ample time to do so. People who sleep fewer than five hours are more prone to infection compared to those who sleep more.
If you’re having trouble sleeping, avoid checking your phone as it might be disrupting your sleep cycle.
Don’t forget to stay hydrated as well. Dehydration will make you lose your focus and it might even bring down your mood.
Speaking of, these are stressful times. STRESS IS A DREAM BUSTER! It imbalances your entire immune system. So keep yourself in check. Do whatever it is that flushes away your anxieties–whether that be meditating, yoga, talking to a friend, or exercising.
Before you go back out there, I want you to put your boxing gloves on and come out fighting by preparing your body. Keep it strong! Keep it healthy! So that you can keep you and your loved ones safe.
Working out at home with my digital workout programs will complement your healthy foods.
