Wednesday Wellness: Tips for Staying Well (and avoiding getting sick!)

By Audra Bergman | In Wellness | on September 11, 2018
The start of a new school year may also mean new germs and illness-causing bugs entering the household. Rather than wait for cooler temperatures to start the cold season, take steps NOW to boost your immunity and help your body defend against unwanted invaders.

1) Don’t pile on too much, too fast. If summer felt slower and more relaxed, bring that approach into your fall as well. If we immediately get busy, overworked and anxious, our immune systems are compromised by higher levels of stress hormones coursing through the body. Be choosy about time and energy commitments for yourself, AND for your family.

2) Boost your nutrition. Resist “fast-fix” kinds of meals and opt for lots of vegetables, fruits, and maybe even add in supplements, immune-boosting vitamins and herbs. Give your body a LOT of good fuel to help maintain wellness.

3) Schedule in self-care. Prioritize a little bit of time every day to do something calm and deeply satisfying, whether it’s getting a massage, reading a good book, doing yoga, or a walk outside. Allow your mind and body this “pause”, and try not to fill it with screen time or conversation. Reduce screen and social time during quiet moments, maximizing the potential benefits of chilling out.

Taking steps to build immunity and wellness is an investment overall health, and also might make you more resilient for those seasonal cold and flu setbacks.
