As more and more counties begin to lighten up on their social distancing regulations, it’s important to consider your own health and how much it might have declined, even without you knowing or feeling it. The truth is, by isolating ourselves and staying indoors we’ve compromised our own health and immune system in order to serve the greater good. Now that the numbers are in and the COVID-19 curve is flattening out, it’s a good idea to take responsibility over our own health as social distancing regulations begin to slowly lift.
Eating good foods and getting plenty of sleep will help your immune system work at optimum capacity. By limiting sugar, processed carb, not to mention alcohol and smoking, your body will respond by working well. Sugars and processed carbs promote inflammation, which makes your body more susceptible to infection.
Exercise a little more and get outdoors a little more. We need Vitamin D to live out healthy lives, and we’ve all been a little sun-deprived during the COVID-19 pandemic, and understandably so. Remember to wear sunblock to limit UV exposure.
One of the big takeaways from this experience is that we should all change our habits to live out healthier lives. Contact Espinosa Family Chiropractic today to learn about how our treatments go hand-in-hand in promoting a healthy lifestyle.
