The COVID-19 crisis has brought to our attention the need to focus on our health. As the world battles this pandemic, we look at our lifestyle and make changes accordingly. 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 boosts the immune system, improves your mood and helps prevent infections. Exercise makes you feel healthier and more energetic. It can help you feel better about yourself. You can 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. If you have an indoor cycling bike at home, now is the time to use that.
Support your health with good nutrition, which is essential to the immune system. Eat antioxidant-rich foods such as citrus fruits, red bell peppers, garlic, ginger, leeks, squash, carrots, eggplants and camote. One thing I make sure to drink every day is Nutrabliss by Watsons Tea because tea is also an antioxidant.
Get quality sleep
A good night’s sleep not only boosts your immune system. It also improves your emotional wellbeing and helps your body recover from the stresses of the day. Stick to a sleep schedule and make your bedroom a haven with dimmer lights at night. Reduce the time you spend in front of the television and looking at your gadgets before bedtime. Also, don’t exercise before bedtime.
Take vitamins regularly
Your body needs a completely balanced diet for it to get all the vitamins and minerals that it needs to function everyday and defend it against illnesses. Vitamins serve as a bridge so that your body gets the nutrients that it needs. Vitamin C, for instance, is believed to increase the production of white blood cells, which are important in fighting infections. 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.
