10 Tips To Strengthen Your Immune System
Satteva gives us 10 tips to strengthen your immune system (By Bonnie Baker)
1.- Extreme Hygiene
At these times, it is vitally important to implement strict hygiene practices in our environments and our bodies, following the instructions of health professionals. In addition, we must take care of the thoughts and talks that we generate, since these have a strong impact. Take good care of the messages you receive and share with the world. Keeping the mind free of fear and doubt increases the energetic vibration with happy ideas, activities and thoughts to defend yourself against any external interference and to keep your heart rate high, vitally, fearlessly and with confidence in life.
2. Balanced diet
Opt for a very alkaline diet, rich in antioxidants (found in green vegetables), probiotics and with an extra dose of vitamins and minerals. It is precisely food, one of the pillars of the body’s well-being.
3.- Meditate in the here and now.
Focusing on the present, based on the ability to focus at this moment, is a meditation technique with tremendous healing power. By meditating in this way we avoid the waste of energy poured into worries and we are empowered to take action towards a desired and positive future result.
4.- Connection with nature.
One of the most relaxing and fortifying activities for the body and mind is lying on the floor (or grass); contemplating the sky, a flower or the natural landscape connects you with the healing energy of the planet and focuses the mind on the vital forces. As much as possible, plant and work with plants to participate in the life cycle and produce food, herbs, and beauty.
Exposing yourself to the sun for about 10 minutes a day, without tanning, helps to better absorb the star’s nutrients and stimulates the production of vitamin D, which reduces infections of the upper respiratory tract and helps the immune system, in addition to release endorphins.
6.- Joyful breathing.
Through breathing, the respiratory system is purified and strengthened, the nervous system is also calmed, and brain and body oxygenation are increased. A slow and conscious inhalation has an immediate effect on the body and mind, reducing the heart rate and blood pressure by stimulating the vagus nerve, which goes from the neck to the abdomen and is responsible for deactivating the “fight or flight” reflex and activate relaxation.
Inhale – Pause – Exhale – Repeat
Inhale – Smile – Exhale – Release.
7.- Enjoy pleasant smells and take inhalations of aromatic steam.
Steam inhalations, whether in a sauna or direct inhalations at home, are widely purifying and strengthening of the respiratory system. Aromas such as eucalyptus, lavender, mint, tea tree or thyme can be steamed to relax and tone the lungs.
Essential oils are created from the volatile secondary metabolites, which cause the odor and taste of plants. These substances have antimicrobial, antiviral, and antiseptic benefits from inhalation or topical absorption. Satteva has a developed essential oil formula called Purity, which blends lavender, thyme, mint, eucalyptus, and tea tree, among other ingredients.
8.- Study and find new hobbies.
Take the time to enrich knowledge and engage the mind in activities that give pleasure and joy, or that are useful for life. There is a lot of access to information on the Internet, take advantage of it!
9.- Exercise and dance.
Joy and movement are vital to dynamic health and constant cell regeneration. Any type of physical activity is positive for the integral well-being, to release tension and eliminate toxins. Dance stimulates the release of dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin. Meanwhile, balance and resistance exercises cause a connection between the body and the brain that establishes greater awareness.
10.- Music, singing and sound therapy.
The healing benefits of singing include emotional release and tune into the energy of the body. Sound therapy is effective for relaxation and is a way of moving through body blocks. In turn, crystal bowls or Tibetans, gong meditations or tuning forks help reduce conditions such as stress, anxiety and depression, maintaining the environment of the body with positive vibrations.
