If I could say one thing after “please stay home” it would be “slow it down”. (i.e. unless you’re supporting our healthcare system)
One thing’s certain: Stress suppresses your immune system. No matter how “clean” you may eat, if you’re strung out and not sleeping, you’re more apt to get sick – regardless of any virus.
And getting sick – or injured – is something you want to avoid during a pandemic.
1. Slow it down – Stay safe
Tried and True > Something New
- New supplements, tonics, teas to ‘boost’ your immune system
- New devices to diffuse essential oils or incense in your home
- New intense exercise equipment or training regimens
But please hear me exclaim loudly: NO, NO, and NOOO!
Take it from someone who’s over-boosted their immune system from antioxidants plus spirulina, mushroom adaptogenic teas, adaptogens, echinacea, etc. It is absolutely possible – even easy – to over-do immune-boosting supplements… to the point your body is so ‘pumped’ that it starts to attack itself.
Keep it slow, keep it steady.
Tried and True > Something New.
For a healthy immune system, the tried-and-true holistic approach is best.Support your immune system naturally with healthy whole food, sunshine, fresh air, mindfulness practices, sleep, and staying connected to others. (virtually for now)
2. Slow it down – mind your Exercise
3. Slow it down – media exposure
4. Slow it down – Go deep within
We need ever more mindfulness to bring empathy and right-ordered communication and action to our world.
5. Slow it down – Find gratitude, extend grace
