2020 will probably go down as a year to forget. Can’t you just see the scowls on all the uber-rich people’s faces in 10 years when the waiter comes out with his finest vintage Chauvignon Blanc cerca 2020? “2020 - that was a bad year” someone genius will chirp nasally and all heads will bob up and down in unison at this bit of commonly accepted wisdom...
One good thing that will definitely come out of all of this chaos is that we will all place higher priority on doing whatever we can to keep our natural immunity as high as possible.
If it hasn’t been beaten into our psyche enough, we are all pretty aware of the need to keep the economy running by purchasing obscene amounts of hand sanitizer and spreading it all over our hand, homes, and workspaces.
But we also need to stick to the basics. Check out our 3 Immunity Boosting Not-So-Secret Secrets to make sure you’re ready for whatever comes your way!
Water, Water Everywhere and Not A Drop To Drink..
Yep, you guessed it. Our single biggest tip is to make sure you are drinking lots of water.
Our skin needs lots of water because it is our largest organ in the fight to protect our immune system. This is important in both the summer and winter months, when forced air heating systems work their skin-drying magic.
Get Your Balancing Act Down
Another basic necessity we need to make sure we perform is the old tried and true “Balanced Diet”. Most of us simply do not get enough veggies. But if we want optimum health and a strong immune system, we need to make it a habit to include green leafy and calciferous vegetables in our weekly diet in creative ways.
The third secret?
Sleep It Off
You may not realize it, but your immune system is maximized when you get more sleep.
Sleep is absolutely vital to making sure our bodies are charged enough to resist illness. You should do everything in your power to ensure at least 7-8 hours of restful sleep per night.
Doing all of these things in addition to the “New Rules” regarding face mask usage should definitely help our bodies prepare our immune system for the battles it is designed to face.
