Tips to give your Immune System a Boost

Autumn is here, which means winter (and the dreaded cold and flu season) is not too far away.  Preparing your immune system now so that it is strong and healthy for winter will give you a better chance of getting through winter without getting sick.  And, if you do catch a cold, with a strong immune system you are likely to have less severe symptoms and a quicker recovery time.

Here are a few tips to help get your immune system in good shape:

Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables.
Eating a healthy diet rich in fruit and vegetables helps to keep the immune system healthy.  Try to eat 5+ per day and include a rainbow of colours.  Eat what's in season and use a mix of fresh and frozen vegetables to help with budgeting.

Quit Smoking.
Try to kick the habit.  Smoking is bad for your health and for those around you who breathe in second hand smoke.  If you need help quitting - we are here to help.

Exercise regularly.
Regular exercise gives your immune system, body and mind a good boost. 
Aim for 2.5 hours of moderate exercise per week.  Remember - sit less and move more.

Get enough quality sleep.
Getting enough sleep is essential to your physical and mental wellbeing.  It is recommended that adults get between 7-9 hours sleep every night.

Watch your stress levels.
Too much stress is bad for your help and weakens your immune system.  Where possible, try to reduce your stress levels.

Check your vaccinations.
Make sure you are up to date with your vaccinations.  Being vaccinated helps your body to kick into action when you come into contact with certain infections.
