There are things you can do to boost your immune system to help you prevent and fight off infection. But most importantly, to live a full and healthy life.
Not enough sleep
Eating too much sugar / high carbohydrate diet
Not getting outdoors
Can you relate to any of these on the Immune Buster list? If so, you’re not alone. So now that we know what busts the immune system, let’s look at what boosts it.
Getting at least 7 hours of sleep a night
Eating a balanced diet rich in vitamins and minerals.
Exercising 30 minutes a day
Meditating, relaxing, releasing stress
Getting outdoors in the sun
How many do you do get right on this above list? Which are you going to try to work harder on?
And it’s not as hard as it might seem to knock out all 5 in a day. Here’s how:
Get into a positivity, immune boosting loop:
Fuel your body with a good diet = so you have the energy to exercise = exercise outdoors (in the sun) so you can release stress and also sleep better = sleep helps your body recover and prepare you for the next day to start it all over again.
When we opened the gym 5 years ago, our excitement was soon followed with a panic stricken “did we make a mistake?”
Our gym had been opened for three weeks and we were way behind our projected goals for the first month. We sat on the floor, looked at each other and wondered if we made a mistake.
Faith is spelled r-i-s-k.
Taking a risk is what starts you on the journey to creating something great. You see what you want to accomplish, you have faith in the outcome, and you take a risk to go after it.
In that panic filled moment on the gym floor, a woman walked through the door and bought a premium personal training package. The next day a friend wanted to gift us a check to help us out in our first month of business. We made our financial goals that month! Our faith increased and it inspired us to keep working hard. This picture is where we are today!
What great thing do you want to accomplish? You will never know what you’re capable of until you take a risk! Have faith it will work out even when things get really hard. Great things don’t come from comfort zones. Go for it! You can do it!
