What are your health goals for 2021?
Due to Covid-19, metabolic health, physical and mental fitness has become even more essential to maintain or improve.
Here are some tips to help get you started:
Regular movement is essential for immune function, pain management and general physical fitness
Developing muscle strength and stability can help prevent injury and improve physical resilience.
Some types of food promote systemic inflammation and can exacerbate the body's inflammatory immune response to infection.
Stress can suppress immune function and slow recovery from illness.
7-8 hours of sleep is essential for healing and repair as well as regulating the function of the immune and nervous system
I hope you find some of these tips useful; there is much we can do to make ourselves healthier and more resilient actively.
