Tips To Stay Healthy This Winter

5 simple ways to strengthen your immune system

Elite Daily says:


1

Find Time To Relax.

 

 

You know all that stress work is causing you? It’s not doing your immune system any favors.  The brain and body are constantly communicating with each other. So if stress is wearing you down emotionally, it’s likely to weaken your immune system as well.

 

2

Wash Your Hands

 

 

When people with colds cough into their hands and then touch a doorknob, their germs transfer to that doorknob. Then you touch that same doorknob and you’re infected with whatever they had.  To keep that from happening, wash your hands frequently.

 

3

Eat Good Food

 

 

Immune-boosting foods aren’t always the tastiest but eating the right stuff is worth it if you want to avoid getting sick.  Make sure you’re eating your fruits and veggies as well as whole grains and fish.  You can get crazy and add probiotics, green tea, garlic and ginger to the mix.

 

4

Hang Out With Your Friends

 

 

According to research, feeling lonely wreaks havoc on our immune systems.  The cold weather may make you want to hole up with Netflix and a bottle of wine night after night but it’s a lot better for your health if you make an effort to see your friends and family during the colder months, even if it’s just for a weekly drink or coffee date.

 

5

Get Enough Sleep

 

 

Sleep is important for weight maintenance, concentration and happiness. Getting enough of it can also prevent you from getting sick.  Not only does lack of sleep break down your immune system, but not getting enough of it while in recovery will turn that three-day cold into a three-week one.
