Today we are facing a unprecedented threat in our lifetime with the Corona Virus pandemic. I hope that you and your family are safe and healthy.
We have been encouraged to take preventative measures in order to have avoid contact with the virus. An important part of those measures is to keep a healthy immune system.
Here are 5 Habits that people with a Healthy Immune system do on a regular basis.
Which ones are you doing well? Which ones do you need to improve on?
1. Healthy eating
A well-balanced diet is so important. It is your first line of defense. It is not always easy to get all the healthy food we should. Supplements can also fill the gap when you are not able to get everything from the foods we are eating. However, not all supplements are the same! Shaklee products are guaranteed to be safe (no harmful ingredients) and they have been scientifically proven to work.
2. Exercise daily:
Walking at least 30 minutes a day improves your immune system and helps you manage your weight!
3. Get seven to nine hours of sleep!
In addition to our diet and walking or other exercise, simple stretching exercises such as yoga or progressive relaxation can help you sleep better.
4. Maintain a healthy weight
When on a low-calorie diet, it is difficult to get the balanced nutrition you need. Many diets are not “safe” or offset your metabolism thus causing what is referred to as the “yo-yo” effect (you gain the weight back.) Here is a safe, delicious and effective way to lose weight: Slim Up Be Healthy
5. Manage your stress and anxiety. Keeping a positive mental attitude is not easy, but there are some things you can do to keep from being depressed and/or anxious. For more tips and to help you develop a healthy plan of action, check out our course on Stress Management for Daily Living.
