Lifestyle changes to boost your immune system

Today is our last post in this series, and we are talking about a few other ways to boost your immune health.

๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผโ€๐Ÿณ Eat a healthy diet. A healthy diet is the basis of most health improvements. Try to increase colourful fruits and veggies and reduce sugar, processed foods and alcohol.

๐Ÿ˜ด Get enough sleep. Sleep allows your body to repair and rejuvenate. Try to aim for at least 7 hours a night.

๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿฟโ€โ™€๏ธExercise. Regular exercise has been shown to boost the immune system by helping the curculation of immune cells around the body. It also helps to strengthen organs like the lungs and reduce inflammation.

๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™€๏ธ Reduce stress. Chronic stress weakens the body including the immune system making you more susceptible to illness. Try to incorporate stress relieving techniques like mindfulness, meditation, yoga and acupuncture into your life.
