5 frugal ways to strengthen your immune system.
Modern lifestyle frequently includes busy moments, so we spend one part of our day working and the other part is all about rushing to complete housework, take care about kids and then all over again. Being occupied with all this sometimes distracts our attention from healthy habits and that’s when our immunity suffers the most. Besides, many women think that immunity boosting requires expensive supplements and food, but there are lot of natural and affordable strengtheners -you just need to grab them:
Keep calm and carry on
This is the rule you should adopt as your daily habit in order to enrich your immunity with enough power. Inadequate or insufficient sleep is one of the main causers of illnesses, since it greatly lowers immunity, so it’s important to provide yourself at least 8 hours of quality sleep daily. If you have trouble to fall asleep, soothing pre-bed bath and calm bedroom are good solutions. Regardless if you’re a mom with crowded schedule or busy girl, try to diminish stress by affording yourself occasional relaxation with your favourite book, meditate, or go for a walk. Combination of good sleep and relaxation don’t cost anything, and you’re doing great thing for your immunity.
Healthy but affordable nutrition
Healthy food is not always expensive, but it’s an excellent booster of your immunity. You can buy spinach very cheaply almost everywhere, and it contains large amounts of C vitamin and antioxidants crucial for boosting immunity’s protective ability. Nettle is famous for its numerous healing purposes -it’s excellent for blood, soothes inflammations, improves immunity and it’s also cheap. Even when you’re busy, you can replace fast food with salad enriched with flax or hemp seeds, which are both full of beneficial minerals, fiber and essential omega-3 and omega- 6 fatty acids. In case you discover gluten allergy symptoms, you should enrich your diet with gluten-free food.
Put some moves on
Devote some time during the week to exercising, since it speeds up circulation and, as such, leads to stronger immunity. Simple home exercises for arms and legs, short morning jogging or swimming are very simple and costless physical activities that can contribute to better flow of immunity cells and keep your body healthy. If you’re having some difficulties to begin with your workout, you can consider wearing leg weights
while you walk to your office. You’ll be surprised with the feel after removing the weights – it’s so liberating (almost like flying).
Just black, please.
Sugar, especially the white one, apart from body figure also negatively affects your white blood cells, which are the core immunity warriors. Although it’s sometimes hard to resist, especially early in the morning with recognizable aroma of the first cup of coffee or when you see that yummy cake in the pastry store, it’s important to stay away from bad sugars. Nevertheless, don’t be disappointed, you can always grab a fruit salad when it comes to sugar crisis.
Embrace the sun
You’re surrounded with it almost every day, it costs nothing and it’s good for your immunity. Short daily exposure to natural sunlight is valuable source of vitamin D, which is crucial for proper immune system functioning. So, provide yourself with 15 minutes of walk on sunny day, and don’t be afraid for your immunity!
Even though women’s world is sometimes super-busy, health should be always a priority, and plenty of cheap, easy and natural solutions can enable it, it’s only up to you to try it.
