Top 6 Lifestyle Changes To Boost Your Immunity

You know what the old and wise say~ health is wealth! And rightly so! Your health is one of those things that can either make you or break you. Having strong immunity ensures that your visitations to the clinic are minimal and enables you to live your life to the fullest. 

Frankly, there is no one-month crash course that guarantees a robust immunity system. However, a few changes can lead to great results! 

Here's a list of six magical yet straightforward lifestyle changes that can boost your immunity!

Stay Hydrated At All Times

Did you know that kidneys ensure that all the toxins are out of your system? Furthermore, they are more likely to function efficiently when the body is hydrated. So, if you drink enough water, harmful toxins like Nitrogen will be eliminated faster. Moreover, with all the toxins out of your system, your immunity gets a kick start as well! 

It would be best if you don't stay dehydrated for an extended period as it can lead to significant health risks like kidney stones. 

Pro Tip: Drink at least 3-4 days of water first thing in the morning to get the best results! 

Sleep Well   

Sleep and immunity have a positive relationship, that is, the better the quality of sleep, the better immunity system. Whereas, if your sleep quality is low, your chances of getting sick are likely to increase. In Fact, a study with 164 healthy adults revealed that those who slept less than 6 hours at night were more likely to catch cold than those who slept 6 hours or more.

So, it's quite evident that healthy sleeping patterns can naturally boost one's immunity. Moreover, an adult should ideally sleep at least 7 hours every single day! 

Balanced Diet 

Eating healthy and by extension, developing healthy eating habits is so beneficial in the long run. Make sure you've got the right amount of proteins, vitamins, carbs and minerals. At the same time, instead of packaged snacks switch to fruits and vegetables! Pack some homemade hummus and carrot for your office evening break! 

20 Minutes Exercise Magic

Latest studies suggest that exercise can help to strengthen your immunity system. Also, you don't need to lift heavy weights or hit the gym every single day; a simple walk daily is a good starting point. You can try jogging, swimming or cycling as well. All you need to do is spend 150 minutes on some form of exercise every week as it will help your immune cells to regenerate. Consequently, mere 20 minutes every day can lead to significant changes. 

 You Need To Calm Down 

It's no news that stress and anxiety can have disastrous impacts on your immunity system. Prolonged stress can decrease the immunity levels, causing inflammation, body pain and even brittle bones. However, there are ways to deal with it, and the best one so far is to just stop whatever you are doing, sit down preferably cross-legged and slowly breath in and breathe out for 5-10 minutes. This breathing technique can easily take away the anxiety and negative thoughts. Furthermore, proper meditation and counselling sessions can also help you to bring down the stress levels substantially. 

 Lower Your Added Sugar Intake 

Chocolates, soft drinks, candies, desserts, and ice creams contain large amounts of added sugar. Added sugar is one of the significant factors that lead to obesity, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease. Moreover, all of these conditions lower your immunity. Hence by reducing your sugar intake, you can quickly decrease inflammation and protect your immune system.
