Half of the world population is quarantining themselves at home, and this might be the best time to boost your immune system without any distractions from the outside environment.
Wellness experts at longevity have identified three key ways to boost your immune system during this quarantine period.
Detox to remove harmful toxins and boost self-healing.
The primary purpose of detoxification is to remove potentially detrimental and dangerous waste from the body and protect organs and systems so that they perform their vital functions in its full potential.
Longevity’s top recommendation for detoxing at home are drinking plenty of water, adding spices such as ginger, cinnamon, turmeric, parsley, black pepper, and cilantro to our diet, and reducing the intake of harmful food and drinks.
Sleep well to fight infections
When we are sleeping, our body produces necessary proteins that improve immune response to help combat infection. Thus having balanced sleeping patterns will help to regenerate holistic health and well-being.
To improve sleeping quality, longevity suggests limiting screen time before going to bed, improving the sleeping environment such as adjusting lighting and temperature, and exercising regularly.
De-Stress to improve health and well-being
Stress can cause detrimental issues to the immune system, which may make us susceptible to infections. Thus managing stresses of everyday life is vital for maintaining a functioning immune system.
To reduce stress levels, wellness experts from longevity recommend mediation and soothing music, writing a journal, and laughing more as laughing releases endorphins, which promotes a healthy immune system.
Boosting our immune system during this time will help us increase our productivity and efficiency when we return back to our normal life.
