Star With Some Water
You may have heard it before, but here it is again. You must frequently wash your hands. Handwashing your hands with some warm water and soap for about 20 seconds is a good place to start. Washing your hands is the first defense in protecting yourself and fending off germs.
Before enjoying your next meal wash your hands. After using the bathroom or being in public where people spread germs. Using touch screens or doorknobs spread germs quickly. But above all else try not to touch your face when you’re out and about. Touching anything transmitting germs and touching your face exposes you to germs.
Watch What You Eat
The best way to improve your immune system begins in your stomach. A balanced diet full of fruits, vegetables, protein, and whole grain will keep the good bacteria in your gut. The microbiome is one of your body’s line of defense when exposed to germs, keep it healthy and you too can be healthy.
Stay hydrated and reduce added sugars that can throw off the balance of bad and good bacteria. It helps to increase your intake of Vitamins, whether in food source or supplement.
When you’re worried about a pandemic, it’s hard to get a good night’s rest. If your body isn’t getting a minimum of seven to eight hours of sleep then your immune system may be weaker. Sleep allows your body to rejuvenate and rest. Make sure you get enough of it.
If you cannot sleep, then you should check the environment in which you try to sleep. It should be cool, quiet, peaceful and dark. Make sure your routine does involve electronics an hour before you go to sleep so that your body can be ready.
