5 Immunity Boosting Activities To Do During Self Isolation
Experts are recommending you self isolate and practice social distancing if you are able.
And every day more and more of our neighbours are choosing to stay in…
Work from home…
And only go out if they have to.
We want to encourage you to use this time to better your health.
1. Get outside.
Go for a walk in the morning and after lunch. Go for a bike ride. Sit outside and enjoy a sunset.
It sounds contradictory but if you are “social distancing”, it doesn’t mean you have to lock yourself inside.
Spending time outdoors can boost your health and immune system, so get out there! Just keep your distance from too many people.
2. Wash your hands and clean your house.
Protecting your hands from germs should be a top priority right now.
Tidying up your house can also have positive effects on your mental health which directly impacts your immune system.
3. Maintain balance.
Just because you’re staying home, doesn’t mean you should stop following your regular routine. Keep some structure to your day to stay sane.
Get up early in the morning.
Eat healthy meals at the normal times of the day.
Go for walks.
Don’t stay up too late.
4. Look after your gut
Poor gut health can make you more prone to stress and can weaken your immunity.
80% of your immune system is located in your gut, so make sure you look after it during this time.
Do a gut cleanse while you self isolate.
Probiotics are great too but before you take them it’s smart to rid your gut of harmful bacteria and cells that are weakening your immune system.
It's much more effective to kill the bugs that are hostile to your gut microbiome and entire body than to try and drown them out with good bacteria (probiotics).
You don’t have to be a victim to bad bacteria, viruses or pathogens anymore.
Taking care of your gut microbiome will transform the way you think about your gut, your immunity, everything.
It’s time to get these invaders OUT of your body.
5. Stay positive
Most of all we want you to stay positive.
Like we said, stress is an immunity killer.
Take this time to meditate, reconnect with friends (via phone, email or video chats) and maybe even discover a new hobby.
Keep laughing, being silly and know that we are going to get through this!
Help neighbours who need it and reach out to loved ones if you are feeling low.
Our team has you in our thoughts and prayers.
The future's still bright and you are amazing.
