We could all use a little extra support right now, so we’re devoting this post to our amazing immune systems and all they do for us. Yes, adapting to our new normal means practicing good hygiene and social distancing, but it also means doing things to keep ourselves and our loved ones healthy (and happy).
Here are a dozen easy things we can start doing daily to help strengthen our immune system, courtesy of our coaches:
Stay hydrated. Drinking plenty of water throughout the day helps your body naturally eliminate toxins, bacteria and other pathogens that can make us sick. Committing to eight (or more) glasses a day also keeps the mucous membrane in your nose moist, which means less irritation (and inflammation) when coughing, sneezing and even just regular old breathing.
Set some limits. Consider cutting back on or abstaining from alcohol, caffeine, fried foods and sweets, which all take a lot of energy to process but don’t give much back to your body in return.
Remember, we’re all in this together. Don’t hesitate to reach out to the coach team and your Yes Heath community through the app if you need some advice, encouragement, a virtual hug or a much-needed belly laugh. (We’re good like that.)
