IMMUNITY | STRESS | ANXIETY

Regular exercise is one of the pillars of healthy living. It improves cardiovascular health, lowers blood pressure, helps control body weight and protects against a variety of diseases.

But does it help to boost your immune system naturally and keep it healthy?

Just like a healthy diet, exercise can contribute to general good health & therefore to a healthy immune system. It may contribute even more directly by promoting good circulation, which allows the cells and substances of the immune system to move through the body freely and do their job efficiently.

Other healthy living strategies include:

  • Don’t smoke.
  • Eat a diet high in fruits and vegetables.
  • Exercise regularly.
  • Maintain a healthy weight.
  • If you drink alcohol, drink only in moderation.
  • Get adequate sleep.
  • Take steps to avoid infection, such as washing your hands frequently and cooking meats thoroughly.
  • Try to minimise stress.

Exercise releases endorphins and helps promote better sleep – this can help your body deal with stress and can help you manage anxiety levels.

So lets do our best to stay healthy and manage our stress and anxiety during these uncertain times by maintaining our healthy, active lifestyle.

See you in the club for your immunity boost with a side dish of stress relief and anxiety reduction.
