Looking to give your immune system a boost? You’ve come to the right place. We’ve got you covered with a few tips and tricks that will keep you feeling strong inside and out.
Exercise, exercise, exercise
Stuck inside your house? Take this time to work towards your fitness goals. Exercise not only helps boost your mood, but can reduce inflammation and support infection-fighting cells. Check out our last blog for the perfect at-home workout.

Practice mindfulness and meditation
Now more than ever, it’s important to keep your stress levels low. Spend some time every day relaxing and rejuvenating your body and your mind. Whether it’s soaking in a hot bath, stretching out with some yoga, or just taking a walk around the neighborhood, your body will benefit inside and out.
Load up on Vitamin Zzz’s
Getting enough sleep is essential to rejuvenating and restoring your body and immune system. Take advantage of the extra time you’re spending at home and catch a few more Zzz’s throughout the day. Hit the snooze button in the morning, take an early-afternoon nap, or just set your bedtime a few hours earlier — no matter how you get some extra shuteye, your body and mind will thank you.

Keep it clean
Wash your hands often and thoroughly. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends scrubbing your hands with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds, or the amount of time it would take you to hum the Happy Birthday song twice. Not sure when to wash? Check out the CDC’s recommendations below:
- Before, during, and after preparing food
- Before eating food
- Before and after caring for someone at home who is sick
- Before and after treating a cut or wound
- After using the toilet
- After touching garbage
- After changing diapers or cleaning up a child who has used the toilet
- After blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing
- After touching an animal, animal feed, or animal waste
- After handling pet food or pet treats
Fill your fridge with fruits and veggies
Load up on foods that are high in antioxidants — like fruits and vegetables. They can help protect your cells from damage caused by free radicals, especially when your body is trying to fight off infection.
