Our Top Tips For Building Your Immune System
As we gear up to go out into the world again, the team at Beyond Beauty has compiled a list of things that you can do to build your immune system and set a strong foundation for your health. Now more than ever, we should be taking care of our bodies from the inside out. Here are some steps that you can take to start building your immune system today: 1.) Spend time outdoors. Spending time outdoors can not only boost your immune system, but it’s amazing for your mental health as well! Just sitting in the sun for 20 minutes will allow your body to soak in some much-needed Vitamin D. “I don’t have the time” is no excuse anymore! Get outside and bask in the suns rays. This can be done in your own backyard, ensuring safe social distancing! 2.) Get plenty of sleep. Sleep allows our body to recover, and it’s very helpful in allowing our bodies to successfully fight against illness and disease. A sleep-deprived body goes hand-in-hand with a weak immune system. Some tips to achieve good quality sleep is to mediate before bed and diffuse or breathe in a few drops of lavender essential oil. 3.) Step up your nutritional game. Now is the chance to whip up some new, healthy meals in the kitchen! We suggest loading your plate with complex carbs, healthy fats, lots of veggies, and a plant-based protein. We also suggest taking daily vitamins! Making sure that you’re getting a sufficient amount of nutrients in each day is one of the best things that you can do for a strong immune system. The owner of Beyond Beauty, Debbie, adds athletic greens to her water each morning for a boost of energy and a healthy immune system. To learn more about athletic greens, click here! 4.) Lower your stress levels. Believe it or not, stress has an impact on your immune system! Find natural ways to lower your stress levels such as exercising, mediating, spending time in nature, or spending time doing something you love, such as reading! We can’t stress reducing your stress enough! No pun intended. ;) So there you have it! We hope that all of our lovely clients are staying happy and healthy amidst everything going on. We are overjoyed to be servicing you all again soon.
P.S. Put the box color, scissors, and tweezers down! Just hang on a little bit longer and allow the Beyond Beauties to take care of all of your beauty needs once we open our doors again. You’ll thank us later for this little reminder. We miss you!! XO, The Beyond Beauties
