Boost your immune system to protect yourself from coronavirus
Sleep has a role in maintaining the immune system. Usually, the healing process takes place when a person sleeps. A person having a sound sleep may have a higher ability to combat a disease than a sleep-deprived person. For better immune system performance, it is better to have at least 6-8 hours of sleep for young people. Sleeping in a dark room and maintaining a regular bedtime and wake up routine has a much better effect on the body’s immune system. For persons who have sleep disturbances, or not having a peaceful sleep, melatonin supplements are a better option.
Exercise is necessary for sound health. Spending some time walking outdoors preferentially in nature is a better way of having a sound body. Fresh air inhaled keeps the mind sharp. Deep breathing also enhances lymph flow. Lymphocytes are present in lymph nodes, and increasing lymph flow increases their flow from lymph nodes to enter into the bloodstream. So, improved lymph flow after a deep breath also enhances the immune system level.
