Boost Your Immune System

We hear a lot of talk about masks and vaccines these days, but not much about simple ways to boost our immune system.  Here are a few for you to consider:

  1.  Get outside and move your body-go on walks in Nature.  If you live close to a beach, go there and walk barefoot.  Exposure to Nature is grounding and it is closely connected to your microbiome which is where 70% of your immune system lives.
  2. Get 15-20 minutes of direct sunshine on your body each day.  Vitamin D is a strong immunity builder and it’s free.
  3. Eat a plant-based diet.  Feed your body the nutrients it needs to thrive.  This consists of foods high in fiber, vitamin D, and antioxidants.
  4. Get at least 7 hours of sleep per night.  Our bodies need this time to recover and restore.
  5. Stay hydrated.  Drink at least one-half your body weight in ounces of water each day.

Listen to Inspiring Podcasts

One of my favorite podcast hosts is Ed Mylett.  He interviews a high-level athlete, business person, thought leader, or expert each week.  This weekend I listened to his conversation with Shawn Stevenson, the author of Eat Smarter.  Shawn is really smart and speaks eloquently about food and its effects on our bodies.  Click here to listen to the podcast.
