Improving Your Immune System by Making Good Choices
Improving your immune system has a significant impact on your overall health and wellness. You can optimize your body’s natural immune system by making good choices in your daily life, including eating right, maintaining a healthy weight, getting enough sleep, and more. These same good choices can help you recover from illness when you get sick and avoid further complications.
Increasing Your Health and Wellness While Boosting Your Immune System
Your first line of defense against illness is a healthy lifestyle. You can optimize your immune system and improve your health and wellness with general good-health guidelines such as:
- Refraining from smoking
- Maintaining a healthy exercise routine
- Eating a healthy diet that is rich in fruits and vegetables
- Getting an adequate amount of sleep each night
- Minimizing the stress in your daily life
- Routine chiropractic and medical care
- Maintaining a healthy weight
Making Good Hygienic Choices to Safeguard Your Health and Wellness
Practicing proper hygiene techniques is one of the best ways to avoid infections and illnesses. Good hygiene habits that you should incorporate into your day include
- Frequent handwashing, including after using the bathroom, before preparing or eating meals, after dirty tasks, and after coughing, sneezing, or blowing your nose
- Covering your mouth or nose when you cough or sneeze with either a tissue or the inside of your elbow
- Avoiding touching your face
- Avoiding any direct contact with tissues, handkerchiefs, or other items that have been used by others
