9 easy ways to boost your immunity this spring
Life is exciting. It’s made up of cycles, and every 3 months we have the opportunity to transform as the seasons come and go. This change can be hard on some − especially for those who are sensitive to spring sniffles. We believe in taking a well-rounded approach to health and in developing a solid base to keep you strong during these naturally delicate times.
Discover our 9 easy tips to boost your immunity this spring. Some may seem like a no-brainer, but they all come together to build to a steady foundation when you follow them with consistency.
Wash the day off
Pesky pollen can sneak onto our skin, hair, and clothes − and it wants to stay there. Showering is a great way to stop them from moving into your home, especially before getting into bed.
Help yourself to lots of H2O
Hydration is key, especially during allergy season. When you're dehydrated, inflammation goes up, and cognitive function goes down. Shoot for a minimum of 8 cups a day − you’ll know you’re at the ideal level when your urine is the color of lemonade or lighter.
Move it to move your blood
Working up a sweat is a great way to get your blood pumping and flowing − but it’s better to do it indoors to avoid pollen. Exercise inside on days when allergen levels are particularly high, especially in the morning.
Eat the rainbow
Enjoy the bounty that spring brings to your fridge including strawberries, carrots, oranges, spinach, garlic, and broccoli. Go for local, seasonal fruits and veggies, and try a diverse array of whole foods which help to minimize nutrient shortfalls and fortify your immune system.
Try a natural boost with supplements

Spring means longer days, so take advantage and soak up the sun. Many people are Vitamin D deficient after the dark winter, and the sunny vitamin is important for your immune pathways.
Goodies for your gut
Nourish your microbiome with probiotic-rich foods like yogurt, kefir, kombucha, and sauerkraut. The microbiome is a protective layer between you and the outside world and has been shown to impact immunity.
Out with the old (and mold). Your home should be a safe haven, and we suggest giving it a good scrub down to get rid of dust and mold. Keep it clean and allergy-free by closing the windows and not wearing your shoes indoors to keep pollen outside.
Rest and recharge
Congestion makes it hard to breathe − and even harder to fall asleep. Committing to 7 or 8 hours of sleep can help your body perform better and help ward off spring sickness.
When it comes to your health, every small step can be a major leap in the right direction. Take on the change of the seasons with a boost of immunity with our SPRING WELLNESS PACK and take off 30% today when you sign up for 3 months.
