Tips to Boost Your Immunity to avoid getting sick

A strong immune system helps in keeping you healthy by fighting off bacteria and viruses. With the World Health Organization’s declaration of the Novel Coronavirus Acute Respiratory Disease (COVID 19 / 2019-nCoV ARD) as “a public health emergency of international concern,“ it makes us think twice if it’s still safe to travel. For me, as long as you practice good hygiene, always stay fit and healthy and boost your immune system, you should push through with your travel plans. Just avoid huge crowd and enclosed spaces, always wash your hands, wear a mask, and always practice the minimum health protocols.

With so much going on, it's important to take care of ourselves and not be stressed out. Here are some simple yet useful ways on how to do just that.

5 Tips on how to Boost Your Immunity

As a traveler, it is important to have a good immune system to combat common sicknesses. Here are some of my tried and tested ways on how to boost your immune system.

Tips to Boost Your Immunity to avoid getting sick

1. Stay Fit! Exercise Regularly.

Exercise produces endorphin; endorphin makes you happy. I know it’s difficult to drag ourselves to the gym and workout, but it doesn’t have to be a boring activity. Grab a buddy that you can workout with, even if it’s just a quick run or walk around the park.

You can also do some simple exercises at home. With the advancements of technology, there are mobile applications as well that would teach you how to work out at the comfort of your own home even without the use of any gym equipment. Keep motivated to stay fit and healthy all the time.

DID YOU KNOW? One hour of physical exercise each day could add two hours to your life. It could just be a walk around the neighborhood, grocery shopping or taking a walk during your lunch break at work.

2. Eat Well and Healthy.

Nothing is better to get you through the day than eating right. Start your day with an energy-packed breakfast to keep you on your feet for all the work and errands you'd be doing the whole day. Steer away from any junk food as these provide temporary tummy fillers with no nutritional benefits. Eat fruits, veggies and drink a lot of water. These food are better for you to boost your immune system!

DID YOU KNOW? To maintain a healthy diet, it's recommended that you eat 5-9 servings of fruits and vegetables each day.

3. Get Enough Sleep.

Just as exercise and nutrition are essential for optimal health, so is sleep. Sufficient sleep is essential for good health. But with how fast-paced the city life can be, sleep is definitely a luxury most people could not afford. Before you decide on having a lot on your plate, make sure to wisely manage your time to provide yourself an ample amount of slumber. Always remember that the quality of your sleep directly affects the quality of your life and total well-being, this includes your emotional balance, productivity, mental sharpness, physical vitality, and even your weight. So, be sure to have sufficient sleep everyday.

DID YOU KNOW? Most healthy adults need between seven and a half to nine hours of sleep per night to function at their best.

4. Have a Positive Outlook in Life.

Positive thinking… It may sound simple, but often, not easy. Positive thinking is always very beneficial for your health. It is good for your body, mind, and overall well-being. Never be cynical and dwell on thoughts that could make you unproductive. Get rid of negative thoughts. Smile more often, appreciate life’s best gifts and surround yourself only with positive vibes!

DID YOU KNOW? Individuals who had higher levels of optimism had a 73% lower risk of heart failure compared with those who were pessimistic.

5. Protect yourself! Take Vitamins.

Food provides a lot of vitamins and minerals, but they may not be enough. Taking the necessary steps to boost your immune system is very important - one of the most important is taking vitamin supplements. Roaming the busy streets, staying up late and the stress brought about by work could cause your immune system to weaken. So, taking the right amount of multivitamins, especially vitamin C wouldn’t hurt to help prevent the common colds or the dreaded flu.

Vitamin C plays an integral part to our overall health. I've been taking multivitamins and vitamin C to boost my immune system and help me to be protected from getting sick. It has been my defense against common ailments such as colds, flu and fatigue.

DID YOU KNOW? The supplement of vitamin C intake helps in lowering the body’s blood pressure.

As the saying goes... "Prevention is better than cure." But I've always believe that "Protection is far better than cure." Always stay healthy and boost your immune system to avoid getting sick.

Go ahead, book a flight, stay healthy and enjoy! Happy travels!
