How to Naturally Strengthen your Immune System
Take Essential Vitamins Daily
Ensure that your body is getting all the essential nutrients it needs by taking a complete multi-vitamin every day. Your body needs proper essential vitamins and minerals every day to support your health and to keep you happy. Try honibe’s multivitamin + immune gummies for all the essential vitamins you need, plus immune boosting vitamins like echinacea, zinc and vitamin C!
Get Lots of Sleep
Getting enough sleep every night is crucial in supporting and maintaining your immune system. A minimum of 8 hours of sleep each night is necessary for your body to heal, repair, and to function at its very best. Making yourself a fun bedtime routine will help you relax, unwind, and give you something to look forward to at the end of a long day. Also, try honibe’s melatonin gummy for extra sleep support on nights when you need it most.
We all know that exercise is a key factor in supporting and maintaining your health, but what benefit does it have in supporting your immune system? Physical activity increases your blood flow to help flush out toxins and bad bacteria, which aids your body in the fight against disease. Not into exercising? Try 30 minutes of yoga or stretching every day to get your blood flowing!
A little vitamin D and fresh air are the cure for everything, right? Life can get hectic at times but giving yourself 15 minutes to get outside and go for a walk is a great way to reduce stress, clear your head and get some fresh air. Try downloading your favourite podcast or playlist to listen to on your walk or, call and catch up with a friend! Also try honibe’s delicious and nutritious Vitamin D3 gummies.
Eat Lots of Veggies
Vegetables are packed full of essential vitamins and nutrients like potassium, vitamin A, folate, fiber, vitamin C, magnesium and more! Eating veggies will help replenish your body, boost your immune system and sustain your health. However, for some people this is easier said than done. Eating healthy can be challenging, but there are tons of healthy alternatives that you can introduce into your diet to help you take on this challenge. Try replacing rice with grated cauliflower, or using lettuce leaves instead of taco shells. Using vegetables as your base instead of carbs is an easy way to start introducing more veg into your diet, as well as a fun way to get creative with the food you eat.
Drink Lots of Water
We’ve all heard it a thousand times before, “DRINK MORE WATER!”. But why? Water makes up more than half of your body weight and is involved in many important functions to keep your body working properly. The 3 main functions that water is involved with are: flushing waste from your body, regulating body temperature, and helping your brain function. All of these things are crucial to your well-being. Staying hydrated can help flush out toxins and waste from your body and boost your immune system to prevent against potential disease and illness. On average, drinking about 8-11 cups of water per day is a sure-fire way to sustain your health and to naturally boost your immune system!
Wash Your Hands
Getting in the habit of washing your hands regularly is a great way to eliminate the spread of germs and virus’. With that being said, we don’t always have access to a soap and a sink at any given point during our day. Keeping a bottle of hand-sanitizer on the go either in your pocket, purse or stashed in your car is great to have on the fly at times when you may need it most!
Manage Your Stress
Stress is an unfortunate and inevitable part of life, and too much of it can cause serious damage to your body as well as your well-being. High amounts of stress can be linked to several ailments such as headaches: upset stomach, lethargy, and frequent colds or infections. High stress levels can put pressure on your immune system and eventually weaken it over time. Learning to manage your stress is a crucial factor in maintaining a healthy immune system. Managing stress can be done in several different ways, often it involves focusing on what makes you happy and helps you to relax. In other words, making time for yourself every day to do what makes you happy is an excellent way to help manage and relieve your stress. This could be simple things like taking a bath, reading a book, watching your favourite show, or practicing piano – whatever it may be, make time for it every day!
