Don’t you know that a healthy lifestyle affects our immune system that helps us beat the winter or summer months? Anyone can be a victim of flu and other illness during summer, so here’s some tips to bear in mind:
• Always wash our hands. This is simple. It’s the best way not to catch any germs. Better to have a hand sanitizer with you ready anytime.
• Getting a lot of sleep- eight hours of sleep will give you revitalize energy to keep you strong and healthy. According to experts, sleep deprivation weakens our immune system and makes it susceptible to a lot of illnesses.
• Eat the right balanced diet to ensure you put vitamins and minerals into your body. For maximum health benefits, choose raw foods rich in fibre. Some immune fighting foods include Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Zinc, some minerals from raw fruits and vegetables.
• Keep moving! A regular physical activity releases toxins from our body and strengthen our immune system. It plays a very important role in keeping us from sickness.
Healthy lifestyle doesn’t mean only taking foods that we like to eat. It’s a matter of choice.
