Best Way To Keep Your Immunity Strong During Covid-19

Guess what?!

There’s no reason that you should be running on empty anymore.

If it takes RONA to get you to slow down, then so be it. Now is the time to develop new habits around your sleep routine.

Research has shown that if you don’t sleep enough, your immune system is impaired, making you more vulnerable to catching a flu or cold. It has also been shown to increase inflammation, impair focus, fatloss, insulin signaling, testosterone production and cardiovascular health. It’s hard to say how much is enough as new research has shown that it is super individual. To be a safe, its best to shoot for 7-9hrs during whichever hours work best for your sleep chronotype.

Quality matters even more so. A 2014 review found that more exercise led to better sleep, while the exact mechanisms aren’t clear, we do know this as factual.

✔️Get your exercise in.
✔️Establish a consistent sleeping schedule.
✔️Avoid blue light or use blue light glasses (absolute life saver for me the past week!) so that your body can produce enough melatonin when it is time to go night night.
✔️Supplement with magnesium, although avoid magnesium oxide due to its poor bioavailability.
Rest up and keep that immune system strong!!
