4 good habits to boost your immune system

It’s on all our minds; how do we keep ourselves fit and our immune systems on track? And especially: how to make sure you keep it up? Our advice: start with small adjustments. Even small changes can make a difference. And our tips are so simple that you can apply them right away. Quickly read on to get started with boosting your health. 
1. Enhance your sleep
Never underestimate the power of a good night’s sleep. Your body needs to recover from your daily activities. If it doesn’t, then this could have a negative effect on your brain and mood. It can cause stress, and we all know that stress is disastrous for our health and can lead to even more sleepless nights. You can’t always influence your sleep, but you can make sure that the circumstances are ideal. Think in terms of a silk sleep mask to keep light out of your sight or even a cooling, silk pillowcase for lots of sweet dreaming.
2. Extra supplements
A good diet is a must for sustaining a strong immune system. So, eat as many veggies, fruits and whole foods as possible. But even the healthiest of diets could use some extra help now and again. In that case, supplements are the way to go for stacking up on antioxidants, phytonutrients, vitamins, and minerals. Also your skin and hair will thank you later.
3. Drink plenty of fluids
Water, water and more water. Our bodies consist of H2O for 70% so don’t underestimate the importance of it for our daily functioning. Especially for our organs; without well-functioning organs, there’s no properly functioning immune system. There are plenty of ways to ensure yourself of more fluids; try switching it up with herbal teas that also provide in extra antioxidants and minerals. Every little bit helps!
4. Keep moving
We all know it, but we can’t always squeeze it into our often-busy schedules. Exercise is key for sustaining a healthy lifestyle because too much sitting is disastrous for our health. And you don’t have to do sports like an athlete, think in the terms of an active lifestyle that suits your way of life - like long power walks or taking the stairs instead of the elevator. Try to fit in 2 to 3 more intensive sessions a week that make you sweat. And this doesn’t need to take up a lot of your time; half an hour of intensive exercise is just as effective as an hour of less intensive movement.
