Immunity Boosters

Dr Renuka David offers ten-point advice to stay healthy, happy and keep your immunity up during these tough times.

  1. Avoid smoking.
  2. Achieve a positive frame of mind by mindfully working on it. It is like exercising your physical body. Steps should be taken to exercise your mind positively with steadfastness and patient endurance.
  3. Exercise in the form of HIET (High Intensity Explosive Training) workouts or brisk walking for 40 minutes at least 4-5 times a week. This releases happiness hormones like endorphins and seratonins.
  4. Eat foods that boost your immunity, especially those rich in Vitamin C, Vitamin E, selenium, calcium, manganese and magnesium-rich food.
  5. Get at least 7-8 hours of uninterrupted sleep.
  6. Maintain an ideal normal weight, keeping your height and BMI in mind.
  7. Consume alcohol in moderation, or not at all.
  8. Practice meditation and yoga.
  9. Try out a new hobby.
  10. Find ways to reach out and make a difference positively.
