While staying at home on the daily might seem miserable, there are some benefits. We have a chance to slow down, reflect, and learn.
Tammy Fry is a health and lifestyle expert and is the force behind Fry Family Foods, which produces over 60 different plant-based brands which can be found in 28 countries around the world.
She is a forever optimist and believes that life is getting better through this pandemic. One way life is getting better--our health. We can focus on taking care of ourselves now that we’re home more, and this is the time to work on our immunity before we wander back out into the unknown.
Her five tips to boosting immunity include: Good food; Supplements; Natural mood boosters; Calming practices; and--STFU.
This is our favorite, which means: Sleep. To. Feel. Unbelievable.
Tammy says, “Sleep is a wonderful immune booster and let’s face it, a good REM sleep not only feels good, it grounds you by giving both your body and your mind the rest it needs to mentally, physically and emotionally stave off whatever comes your way. Now that there are no late-night parties, dinner with friends, or drinks at the pub, you can more easily prep to get 7-9 hours of quality sleep. Studies have shown huge benefits to the immune system and increased number of T-cells (immune cells which protect the body from cancer cells and other pathogens), when getting your full sleep quota.”
Crack Wise-dom: Now when we tell someone to STFU, we can tell them it’s because we care about their health. No, really. We do.
P.S. If we attempted what Tammy is doing in the picture above, there’d be a guaranteed health insurance claim.
