Given that we are seeing rising numbers of those affected with COVID, it often feels like this whole situation is beyond our control. I don't know about you, but lately I have felt overwhelmed with the amount of unknowns. I thought to write an article about the tiny bit we can control.
We can try to boost our immune system by eating healthy foods, especially a diet rich with a colourful variety of fruits and vegetables.
Another great way to boost our immune system is through exercising with moderate intensity. This is one of the main reasons I am so passionate about teaching healthy movements for our bodies and minds (mental health).
Studies show exercise:
Our bodies were created to move. Movement heals in so many ways. It helps stretch out tight muscles and joints, easing discomfort and joint pain. Proper movement patterns create balance in our muscles, helping us move with ease and strength. Movement builds better bones. Plus it helps release stress and boost our mood. Movement reduces our risk of cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and certain cancers. Try for 30-60min of purposeful and planned movement everyday, your body will thank you for it!
