I’m a mom of two kids and I am taking the COVID-19 pandemic seriously. While we are on ECQ, moms like me have been reevaluating our health habits. Our new normal is one that’s focused on health and wellness. Wearing face masks, drinking vitamins every day and being vigilant about hand-washing are part of the new normal. As everyone realigns their priorities, you can count on Watsons to be with you every step of the way. Here are a few recommendations from Watsons on what you can do at home to help keep your immunity strong and your family healthy.
Did you know that staying active also helps strengthen our immune system, aside from helping us become fit and improving our mood? Allotting time for daily exercise (at least 30 minutes to one hour a day at least four times a week) is important. Go for exercises you can do with a group like dance or cardio workouts so you can involve the whole family. One simple form of physical activity is doing the laundry. You can ask your kids to sort the laundry by color before they’re placed in a washing machine or they could sort their toys for keeping, donating and throwing away.
We are trying to eat better because I know that our diet is where we get the nutrients required to keep the body healthy. I learned that antioxidants help strengthen the immune system so I have been making sure that we have lots of fruits and vegetables daily. I’ve also been drinking tea, which is an antioxidant. I’m loving Nutrabliss by Watsons Tea, which I drink hot or cold depending on my mood.
Get quality sleep
Now that we have more time in our hands, we can sometimes easily sacrifice rest for activities such as binge-watching or staying up while scrolling through our gadgets. 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 at night. Getting good sleep helps strengthen the body’s immunity against illnesses.
Take vitamins regularly
With our current situation, some natural sources of vitamins may be hard to come by. With trips to the grocery stores becoming more challenging, you can count on taking vitamins to strengthen your family’s immunity. We all know Vitamin C is important for family members of all ages. Stock up on your supply of Watsons Generics Ascorbic Acid.
But Vitamin C isn’t the only vitamin that can keep you healthy. Enervon Activ Soft Gel—rich in Zinc, Vit. A, C, and E—helps boost immunity and promotes healthy hair and skin. Myra E 400IU, on the other hand, is also rich in 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 and Cherifer PGM with Zinc capsules.
Like vitamins, supplements are a great way to give your health an extra boost. You can rely on 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 which may cause damage to your 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.
Preparedness is key to protection, so make sure you have your health essentials to help your home stay ready for any health emergency. These include Lola Remedios, Strepsils, Land Prosource Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, know that you can count on these items being available at Watsons.
