Keep your immunity strong, even when you’re busy!

No matter how much we try to minimize our exposure to bacteria and viruses, it’s far more difficult to stay healthy during stressful and hectic seasons, such as Fall. But how can you keep your immunity strong during those busy times? Let’s dive in.

  1. Sleep: there is strong evidence showing that sleep can enhance your immune system. Try to get at least 6-8 hours of sleep each night.image-two
  2. Check your diet: keep your immune system healthy by eating nutritious foods. Consume a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, lean meats, fish, eggs, nuts and seeds that are low in cholesterol and saturated fat.
  3. Get moving: especially in places where the winters are bitter cold, it can be hard to stay active and get the proper amount of exercise. But lack of exercise during these months can greatly contribute to the drop in our immune systems. Make time for your usual exercise routine, no matter how busy you are.
