5 Ways to Boost Your Immune System – 5

5. Get Some Sun
Sunlight triggers the skin’s production of Vitamin D which helps fight respiratory infections. In the winter months, it is difficult above the Mason-Dixon line to get an adequate amount of sun, so if you live north of there, consider a Vitamin D supplement.

3. Drink Less Alcohol
Alcohol impairs the immune system and increases vulnerability to lung infections such as coronavirus. A glass or two here and there is stress relieving to many, but more than that increases stress on your liver and immune system.

2. Manage Your Stress
Stress is another thing that elevates the hormone cortisol which suppresses immune function. Keep to your deadlines, but allow yourself more time to complete projects. Leave a little early for work so you don’t have to worry about arriving on time. Limit your contact with people who are stress magnets. If you’re feeling particularly stressed, take a walk, close your eyes for 10 minutes, or open a book. Anything to break the cycle of stress and stress reactions is good.

1. Get Enough Sleep
Sleep deprivation increases the hormone cortisol which suppresses immune function. It’s hard for many busy, working people to get enough sleep, but if you haven’t already, develop a limiting bedtime routine: limit your water and food intake, limit the time you spend in front of screens (TV, computer or phones), limit your thoughts to anything that isn’t worrisome or stressful. Getting at least 7 hours of sleep is best for most adults. 8 hours would be even better.
