After two years of a pandemic, it’s only natural to want to make 2022 a time to avoid getting sick and maintain a healthier you. Unfortunately, there are no shortcuts to strengthening your immune system, so it’s important to start those New Year’s Resolutions with the right mindset and ensure you find ways to stay healthy this year:
Establishing a Healthier You This New Year
Exercise Your Way to a Healthy Immunity
Exercise is one of the great ways to avoid getting sick and stay healthy throughout each of the seasons in the year. A regular exercise routine – even with something as simple as walking – can help reduce inflammation, stave off chronic diseases and increase circulation and white-blood-cell production. Each of these outcomes are sure-fire ways to help you avoid getting sick and promote healthy immune defence support.
Healthy Immunity with H2O
Did you know that the human body is made up of 75% water? Keeping well hydrated is an important way to stay healthy and make sure that your New Year’s Resolutions don’t go off the deep end. By drinking plenty of water with good foods, you help flush out toxins, improve circulation, and boost your immune system. It is one of the best and simplest ways to avoid getting sick and support your immune health.
Good Foods for a Good Immune System
An immune system fuelled by good foods is an excellent way to stay healthy and achieve a healthier you throughout the year. A simple trick to managing a healthy diet is to add colour to every meal! Fruit and vegetables are good foods that are key to building immune defences and maintaining healthy immunity. So, make one of your New Year’s Resolutions to regularly eat nutritious, delicious, foods!
Staying Healthy with Sleep
Sleep is extremely important when trying to avoid getting sick and manage immune health support. Studies have shown that adults who manage to sleep for at least eight hours a night have a healthy immune system that is able to avoid getting sick throughout the year. By reaching deep sleep, your body is able to produce a protein called cytokines which helps fight infection and illness by regulating the immune system. So, start your healthier new year, look after your immune system and become a healthier you by counting sheep.
Be a Healthier You with Hygiene
In these Covid times, hand washing has become a special skill set for most of us for staying healthy. This is one of the great ways to avoid getting sick throughout the year, as washing away germs and bacteria before they get into your body is a prime defence against foreign particles. Other easy ways to stay healthy and practise good hygiene are to shower daily, wash hands before eating or prepping food, cover your mouth and nose when sneezing or coughing and carrying wipes to clean shared surfaces. Stick to your healthier New Year’s Resolution by staying healthy and carrying out these simple practices to avoid getting sick.
