Everyone is scared of getting sick nowadays, as the coronavirus outbreak has held the world back. People who used to call bless you after someone sneezed now run away from the person who even scrunches his nose.

Well, we can not blame people, it’s the coronavirus. To fight against the deadly virus, one should have a strong immune system, which will help the virus to stop damaging the body and lungs. A few changes in diet and lifestyle can make a huge impact in boosting immunity.

The following  5 ways can help you to boost your immunity.

 Eat Healthy Fats

The usage of olive oil and omega-3s are healthy fats and highly inflammatory. Since chronic inflammation can repress your immune system, these healthy fats may help you to fight illness.

Eat Whole Plant Food

Many whole plant foods have antioxidants, fiber, and vitamin C, all of which will help you to boost your immunity.

Get Enough Sleep

Less sleep increases the risk of getting sick. Adults should get at least 8 hours of sound sleep to prepare their immune system to combat viruses.

Exercise

Doing an exercise like jogging, biking, walking, swimming are great ways to reduce inflammation and promote the healthy turnover of immune cells.

Stay Hydrated

Dehydration can cause headaches and hinder your physical performance, focus, mood, digestion, and heart and kidney function. These complications can increase your susceptibility to illness. To prevent dehydration, drink lots of water.
