2020 will be remembered as the year that changed our perception of health. Our global health situation has affected us critically and required us all to make well-being a top priority. As we now turn our attention towards making good health a new way of life, you can count on Watsons to be with you every step of the way. Here are a few recommendations from us on what you can do at home to help keep your immunity strong and your family healthy.
Be active – Exercising has many known benefits such as helping us get fit, improving our mood, to even helping boost the health of our internal organs. But did you know that staying active helps strengthen our immunity system too? Make sure to allow time for exercise even for at least 30 minutes to 1 hour at least 4 times a week. Go for exercises you can do with a group like dance or cardio workouts so you can involve the whole family.
Eat right – A big factor that can spell the change in strengthening your family’s immunity is watching what you eat. There are plenty of immunity-boosting foods that you can incorporate easily into your daily recipes, from healthy vegetables such as carrots and broccoli to flavorful spices like garlic and ginger. Additionally, you can also finish your meals with a warm cup of comfort courtesy of Nutrabliss by Watsons Tea.
Get quality sleep – Did you know that getting proper sleep helps increase our defense against sickness? Now that we have more time on our hands, we can sometimes easily sacrifice rest for activities such as binge-watching or staying on up our gadgets late at night. To help avoid this, make sure to set a proper time for sleeping. Manage the household’s schedule and make room for most of your activities in the morning, so the family can sleep soundly come nighttime.
Take vitamins regularly – With our situation now, some natural sources of vitamins may be hard to come by. With trips to the grocery stores becoming more challenging, know that you can also count on taking vitamins to strengthen your family’s immunity. We all know Vitamin C is critical for family members of all ages. Pro tip? Stock up on your supply with Watsons Generics Ascorbic Acid.
But Vitamin C isn’t the only vitamin that can keep you healthy, Conzace Soft Gel—rich in Zinc, Vit. A, C, and E—helps boost immunity and promote healthy hair and skin. Myra E 400IU, on the other hand, is also rich with Vitamin E to help fight cell damage. For the kids, let’s help support their growth not just in height but in strength with Growee Syrup or Cherifer PGM with Zinc capsules.
Top up with supplements – Like vitamins, supplements are a great way to give your health an extra boost. You can easily rely on taking supplements to help provide the nutrients you need on top of maintaining a healthy diet. Given that going back outdoors could mean exposure to environmental factors that may cause damage to our skin and body, make sure you keep that healthy glow from within with supplements like MET Tathione, NU Essence Collagen, and Organique Acai Juice. You can also keep your defenses up with supplements that harness the power of natural ingredients such as MX3 capsules and Watsons Generics Malunggay + Mangosteen.
Your must-haves at hand – Preparedness is key to protection, so make sure you have your health essentials to help your home stay ready for anytime sickness may strike. From easy relief in your medicine cabinet, Ascof Forte Syrup, Strepsils, healthy choices in your pantry, Prosource Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, to the items you need to stay clean like Biogenic Ethyl Alcohol, know that you can count on these items available at Watsons.
