The covid pandemic has been an unmanageable disaster that seems to be getting out of control with each passing day. It is important to ensure you boost up your immunity as this seems the only way to manage this disease at the moment. There is no specific treatment or cure and the best of researchers and scientists are yet working on an effective vaccine. Listed below are some of the measures you can take to ensure a boost to the immunity.
Concentrate on your Diet:
The food you consume makes a big difference to the overall health and immunity of an individual. You need to ensure you include a nutritious diet so that your body is not deprived of the essential mineral, vitamins and other nutrients. A diet that is rich in proteins but low in carbs can be considered as a healthy diet. To build the required resilience in your body you need to include specific foods like broccoli, spinach, bell pepper, mushrooms and more. You can consult a nutritionist to get a clear idea if you are not too sure.
Stay Well Hydrated:
Drink enough and more of water every day to ensure you are well hydrated. Dehydration is the cause of multiple problems. Make sure you stay away from all those sodas and sugary drinks. Concentrate on plain and simple water. This helps in flushing out the harmful toxins from your body. You can include citrus fruits and also coconut water to ensure hydration and beat the hot summer months.
Get quality Sleep:
Compromising on sleep is one sure way to get into trouble. Not many are aware that your body needs 8 to 10 hours of quality sleep so that it can do the ‘repair’ job. The functions of the different parts of the body get impaired when your body is not rested properly.
As know, these are difficult times and staying locked indoors has a negative impact not only on your physical health but also on your mental health. Anxiety is common these days but following the listed tips can help you distress and manage yourself in a better manner.
Avoid Alcohol, smoking and other addictive substances:
Any addiction, be it drinking or smoking has a direct impact on your mental and physical health. Smoking can bring down the capacity of your lungs and make you prone to respiratory illnesses. There is no harm in consuming one or maximum two drinks in a day so that you are relaxed and not causing any harm to your health.
There is a possibility of too much cortisol being released in your system with all the stress surrounding you. This is a stress hormone that can make your body susceptible to different infections. This can keep you calm and relaxed and helps you deal with unnecessary stress.
Following the tips listed above can help you deal with this corona virus in a better manner and can increase the factor of ‘safety’.
