Boost your immunity in three quick steps

As the year 2021 ended, multiple dictionaries are sharing the word of the year 2021. Here are a few words that have won – NFT, vax, and perseverance. I cannot choose a “word of the year”, but if I had to elect a term of the year 2021, it would be (*drum-rolls*)

“Health is Wealth.”

Yes, it might sound clichéd, but it’s the ultimate truth.  For some time now, most of us have spent time, effort and money, not on clothes, food, jewellery, but on our health.

Think about it. Right from joining online yoga or Zumba classes to signing up for nutrition support, we have been conscious of our health more than ever. Health is indeed wealth na?

Like every person, I wish to keep my family safe too.  A crucial factor that determines health is a robust immune system that protects us from diseases and infections. That’s when I started doing my research on ways to boost immunity for everyone in my family.

Mostly, we have all been on the right track, and that was a relief. I, however, found vitamins and minerals along with a nutritious diet and an active lifestyle to be a lifesaver. There are many ways that can help the human body remain strong. Let’s check out 3 active ways to boost your immunity.

Top 3 ways of boosting your immunity:

1. Start with hygiene:

Hygiene is something we have grown up learning and of course, you look at your family as role models. I remember my grandmother often cleaning her hands even when not eating something. Her simple logic was that our hands touch everything around us unknowingly. That’s why we should keep them clean.

Not just our hands, but even bathing, keeping our nails clean, sneezing or coughing in our elbow instead of our palms, ensuring that our home or work environment is clean – all of it adds to basic hygiene. It’s important to keep ourselves conscious of hygiene to be strong and build immunity for fighting against infections.[1]

2. Create a steady diet that has taste & is rich in vitamins:

As someone who is constantly on the move – whether going to work or planning a photoshoot for my lifestyle blog or planning a trip – food has been something that has always been important. After all, you cannot do any of these activities without proper fuel in your body, am I right?

Until recently, I hadn’t paid attention if what I was eating was a balanced diet. But, now I know that a balanced diet contains fresh fruits and vegetables, proteins, carbohydrates, milk and healthy fats and sugars.[2]

To ensure that my parents and I are eating a complete and balanced nutritional diet, we consulted our physician. . She helped us with personalized diet plans for each of us depending upon age, weight and eating habits.

In addition, she also prescribed Limcee chewable tablets 500 mg to ensure that we got the required amount of vitamin C in our body. Vitamin C, she explained, is an antioxidant that can help us from damage caused by pollution and helps the immune system to function properly.[3]

3. Walk, run, exercise, and maintain a healthy weight:

Maintaining a healthy weight is also important to boost immunity and fight against infection.[4] Like, I go jogging early in the morning and practice Zumba in the evening. Both of these activities help me stay active and energetic. And they have the added advantage of helping me keep a check on my weight.

These are a few ways to boost immunity. Which ones do you follow?
