We all feel threatened by the coronavirus. We all feel threatened by cold and flu season too, even though illnesses like that may seem like nothing right now. While these health problems are very different, they do have one thing in common: You can recover more quickly from them when you have a strong immune system.
How to Strengthen Your Immune System
Getting healthier during quarantine can feel like a tall order. All you want to do is hunker down and pamper yourself to minimize the stress of working at home and teaching your kids and managing cooking and cleaning and every other responsibility in between. It takes dedication to commit to an exercise routine and healthy eating when you’re limited in the ways you can exercise and aren’t always motivated to stick to nutritious foods.
Finetuning the immune system requires changes to nutrition and lifestyle – and that’s something you can do anytime, even when you’re living under restrictions. The goal is to help your body regulate itself and find balance so you can take control of your immune system and make it that much stronger against a virus.
What If You Do Get Sick?
Having a strong immune system is not foolproof protection from every disease. Even the toughest immune systems can still get sick. The circumstances must be just right – you’re in close contact with a sick person, don’t wash your hands, touch your face too much. Being susceptible is not always perfectly aligned with immune system health – your behavior can actually have more to do with whether you contract an illness.
However, if you do catch a virus but you have a healthy immune system, your recovery time will be shorter and your symptoms less severe. It pays to take care of yourself. Even when you get sick, if your body was strong and healthy before that you will have a less difficult recovery. Immune system strengthening is worth every effort.

Accountability is one of the biggest elements necessary in immune system building. You know you should eat better and exercise more, but if you’re not accountable to someone else, it’ll be that much easier to skip a workout, go overboard on the desserts, or let yourself just give up.
