How To Boost Your Immunity This Winter

Heya,

How are you doing ? How is your family doing ? What about your friends and colleagues ? If everyone is doing fine, it means that people around you have very good immune system :). If not, then perhaps all of them should read this post. I always want to make everyone read my banter, lolz ๐Ÿ˜›

The weather here in Bangalore is such that everyone around me has taken at least one sick leave in the last 15 days. In North India, winters are ready to bloom.

Let’s see what how we can prevent ourselves from cold , flu or any other allergies.

Water

Haanji :). Perhaps I could live without air but not without water(read exaggeration ๐Ÿ˜› ). Water carries WBC through the body. WBC are responsible to fight against diseases and keep you healthy. When you feel you are about to fall sick, increase your water ย intake. Make sure that you drink clean water. Avoid drinking water at restaurants especially during this weather. Order a mineral water bottle instead of drinking normal water.

Sleep

All of us need 7-8 hours of sleep. Lack of sleep causes fatigue, weight gain and decrease in immunity. Make sure you get your dose of good sleep.

Healthy Diet

Junk food not only contains empty calories minus the nutrition, they hamper your system(Read body). The few important nutrients to strengthen immunity are Vitamins( A, C, D, E) , Zinc, Omega-3 fatty acids and protein.How to you get them ? Nuts, Fruits, Eggs, White Meat, Veggies, Seeds etc .ย 

Out of the above nutrients, Vitamin C is the most important nutrient to prevent/fight cold. All citrus fruits like orange, kiwis, berries are rich in Vitamin C. Antioxidants like brown rice are also good source of Vitamin C.

You can absorb Vitamin D from sun. If you have cold/cough, spend 15-20 minutes in the sun, you would feel better ๐Ÿ™‚

Exercise

Even if you are fit, 20-30 minutes of quick workout 3-4 times a week suffices to boost immunity. If you complain that there are only 24 hours a day and you probably want to increase the number ๐Ÿ˜› , try HIIT. HIIT is a quick fat buring workout, read here and here.

Probiotics

Our digestion and immunity is straight away related to the health of your gut. You can increase the probiotics in your diet if you have fallen sick or you feel you soon can.
