Temperatures are dropping, the days are getting shorter, and we are all doing our best to stay healthy and avoid being stuck in bed with a box of tissues.
Here are a few tips that will help you ‘’EnerJize’’ your Fall & Winter seasons.
1. Stress management
One of the most important ‘’energy stealer’’, is stress. So take daily breaks to relax and learn to say NO more often!
We are moving ‘’creatures’’ and one of the many benefits of daily movement is a strong immune system.
3. Spend time in the outdoors
According to some studies, the main reason we catch a cold more often during the winter months, is because we spend more time indoors exposed to lots of people. So, get your dose of fresh air every day!
4. Keep a Healthy Gut
It’s well established that a healthy gut helps to keep the immune system functioning optimally. Including prebiotics & probiotics, can help to support and establish a healthy microbiome and build a more robust immune system. Natural sources include yogurt, fermented foods like Kefir & Sauerkraut and a supplement can also help.
5. Vitamin D & Zinc
While the majority of vitamins and minerals play significant roles in our immune system, Vitamin D & Zinc are especially essential. They work to support the immune system by aiding the development and functioning of infection-fighting white blood cells. Vitamin D is difficult to find through food. That’s why it is a good idea to supplement during Fall & Winter. Zinc is predominantly found in red meat and seafood, as well as in nuts, and seeds. You can also find it in some high quality multi-vitamins.
By addressing immunity holistically, you can support your immune system now and for the months (and years) to come.
To your Health,
