5 ways to boost your immunity in the spring

These simple steps will to boost your immunity very quick in one week.

 

The spring – a beautiful, but treacherous time of year: awaken from sleep are not only the flowers and bugs, but colds, along with allergic reactions. In these harsh conditions immunity has to bravely fight for our health. But three months of winter without the sun, fruits and vegetables make it extremely weak and vulnerable, and this is reflected in the colossal burden on the body: we may feel fatigue, drowsiness, irritation and causeless sadness.

 

To somehow help your immune system, keep in mind the following recommendations:

 

  1. Regular walking

On the decrease in immunity seriously affect “solar starvation” and lack of oxygen, so it’s important to walk at least 30 minutes a day, despite the weather. Well, if the sun came out, immediately go out for a walk as well as for vitamin D. It is advisable to stay away from the roads and highways, the best idea is going to the park.

 

It is important to bring warm clothing, as the weather constantly change, and the sun can still easily be replaced by a cold wind and snow. This is the basic rule of the initial period of spring: dress warmly, don’t sit on cold place.

 

  1. Proper nutrition

 

Vitamin deficiency – the most common cause of a weak immune system. During the spring, we use less fresh vegetables, fruit, and if we eat them, we cannot always guarantee their quality and naturalness. Hence we have a lack of vitamins A, B6, B9, C, therefore in the spring we need to watch more closely as possible for our diet. It is advisable to get tested, identify what elements you are missing, and focus on them.

 

Firstly, never skip your breakfast. You have to wake up the body and provide it with all necessary vitamins. A great option – porridge with dried fruits, nuts and smoothies.

Second, check with your doctor, dietitian or yoga instructor which are the best vitamins for you.

 

Well, and, thirdly, do not forget about the good old spices: ginger, cinnamon, basil, coriander, which are perfectly disinfected and invigorate.

 

  1. Physical activity

 

Perhaps in a state of fatigue and apathy movement – the last thing that comes to mind. Increased heart rate during exercise increases the flow of oxygen and strengthens not only muscles but also the immune system. Do not exhaust yourself, but the morning exercises are enough.

 

  1. Peace of mind and good mood

 

A serious decline in immunity contribute to stress that confront us everywhere if we have weak nervous system. You can strengthen it with herbs and essential oils of lemon balm, lavender, valerian, leonurus, and coriander.

 

  1. Sound sleep

 

Be sure to get enough sleep. Go to bed no later than 11 pm. Even better, if you relax yourself an hour before going to sleep: take a bath, read a good book, listen a classical music… Because even if you go to bed at 11 o’clock without relaxation, your body cannot fall asleep until 1am. Invent your own kind of ritual, which you will perform always before bedtime and every time it would give a hypnotic signals to the body.

These simple steps will give you good mood, boost your immunity and improve the well-being not only physical but also emotional.
