6 Ways To Stay Well and Healthy During A Health Crisis
HEALTH IS WEALTH. This is so true. We should always make health our topmost priority no matter what. You may have good and flourishing career or maybe your dream job, a nice car, a house, and all the money in the world, but when you become ill, all of it wouldn’t matter.
Now that the world faces and battling a health crisis caused by Covid-19, people stayed at home as a pandemic traveled from country to country. And as we embrace the “New Normal” we should put our attention toward making and implementing good health practices.
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 fit through physical activity is one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves. Physical activity of at least 30 minutes a day has immediate and long-term health benefits. It strengthens our immunity and reduces our risk of cardiovascular diseases, helps us have stronger bones, muscles and joints and lowers the chance of us developing osteoporosis. The workouts don’t need to be complicated. There are many videos of simple home workouts on YouTube that you can check out.
Eating well benefits us in the long term by strengthening the immune system and helping the body fight illnesses. Antioxidant-rich foods such as citrus fruits, red bell peppers, garlic, ginger, leeks, squash, carrots, eggplants and camote can be incorporated into our diets. 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 boosts your immune system, improves your emotional wellbeing, and helps your body recover from stressors. Make your bedroom a mo-TV, no-gadget place at night and stop taking naps during the day so you get a good night’s sleep. Dim the lights and go off to dreamland.
Take vitamins regularly
A complete balanced diet is important for our body 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.
