The COVID-19 health crisis has brought into focus the many things that we need to improve on in certain aspects of our lives. From exercise to diet to other lifestyle habits, we have made many changes since we have been quarantined. As we now turn our attention toward making good health a new way of life, you can count on Watsons to be with you every step of the way. Here are a few recommendations from Watsons on what you can do at home to help keep your immunity strong and your family healthy.
Being active has been shown to have many benefits physically and mentally. When you exercise, you feel better because of the release of hormones called endorphins. Exercise plays an important role in building and maintaining strong muscles and bones and increases your level of energy. It can also boost your immunity. It is difficult to take up a sport or go to the gym when we are required to be indoors but we can certainly spend 30 minutes everyday to stretch and do some cardio and simple exercises. Household chores, such as cleaning the floor and doing the laundry, can also be forms of physical activity.
Eating healthy food can ensure that you and your immune system will be in great shape. Good nutrition is essential to a strong immune system. Antioxidant-rich foods that can boost the immune system are citrus fruits, dark green leafy vegetables, red bell peppers, ginger, garlic, carrots, sunflower seeds and turmeric. Because tea is an antioxidant, try Nutrabliss by Watsons Tea.
Get quality sleep
A good night’s sleep is important to your overall health and wellbeing. Going to bed at the same time every night, limiting the intake of caffeine-based drinks, cutting down on daytime naps and reducing the amount you spend scrolling through your gadgets and watching TV are some of the things you can change about your sleeping habits. Remember that getting a good night’s sleep regularly gives your body the strength to fight bacteria.
Take vitamins regularly
The body needs vitamins and nutrients to function properly. Unfortunately, we do not get them all for our diet. Taking a daily vitamin helps boost the immune system and gives the body more energy. For example, you need Vitamin C for continued good health. Pro tip: Stock up on your supply with Watsons Generics Ascorbic Acid.
Vitamin C isn’t the only vitamin that can keep you healthy. Enervon Activ Soft Gel helps boost immunity and promotes healthy hair and skin. Myra E 400IU, on the other hand, is also rich with Vitamin E to help fight cell damage. For the kids, let’s help support their growth not just in height but in strength with Growee Syrup or Cherifer PGM with Zinc capsules.
Top up with supplements
Like vitamins, supplements are a great way to give your health an extra boost. They also have antioxidants that can do a lot of good for your mind and body. They can include supplements like MET Tathione, NU Essence Collagen and Organique Acai Juice. You can also keep your defenses up with supplements that harness the power of natural ingredients such as MX3 capsules and Watsons Generics Malunggay + Mangosteen.
Preparedness is key to protection, so make sure you have your health essentials to help your home stay ready for any health emergency. These include Lola Remedios, Strepsils, and Prosource Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, know that you can count on these items being available at Watsons.
