It’s the middle of winter and the height of cold and flu season, which means you’ve probably got immune health on your mind. Luckily, there are plenty of simple lifestyle changes you can make that can help boost your immune function and even strengthen it over time.
6 Lifestyle Tips To Strengthen Your Immune System
Get 7-8 Hours Of Sleep
At the top of the list, as usual, is getting enough quality sleep. Studies show that people who don’t get enough sleep are more likely to get sick and can take longer to recover when they do get sick. Add this to the long list of reasons why it's important to get 7-8 hours of shut-eye every night.
The link between regular exercise and improved immune function is undeniable. Moderate exercise not only helps your immune system find and deal with pathogens in the short term, it also helps to slow the changes that happen to the immune system with age. Moving your body at least 30 minutes a day is all it takes to enjoy the benefits.
Spend Time In Nature
In addition to reducing anxiety, improving sleep, and helping you get the vitamin D your body needs, spending some time each day out in nature has been shown to boost your body’s immune function.
Manage Chronic Stress
While moments of stress are a perfectly natural, and even healthy, part of life, chronic stress has been shown to dampen immune function. That’s why it’s so important to give yourself time every day to destress. Whether that’s through meditation, yoga, or an evening routine with a mug of Golden Superfood Bliss, do something that brings you peace every day. *
Prioritize Nutrient-Dense Foods
Our diet is how every system in our body gets the nutrients needed to function properly, and the immune system is no exception. Make sure you’re eating a varied diet full of wholesome, nutrient-dense foods to give your entire body the fuel it needs.
