As the global pandemic caused by COVID-19 persists, it is most important to always keep your family’s health in check. With our attention refocused toward making good health a new way of life, it’s comforting to know that Watsons is here to help every mom every step of the way.
Here are a few recommendations from Watsons on what we can do at home to help keep your immunity strong and your family healthy:
Exercising has many known benefits such as helping us get fit, improving our mood and helping boost the health of our internal organs. But did you know that staying active also helps strengthen our immunity system?
Make time for exercise daily, even for at least 30 minutes to one hour. Go for exercises you can do with a group like dance or cardio workouts so you can involve the whole family. In our case, the workouts have to be kid-friendly. The exercises have to be fairly easy but still keep the kids entertained.
Here is one of the simple workout videos that I follow on Youtube:
These days, buying food and cooking it require ingenuity. Still, there are plenty of immunity-boosting foods that you can incorporate easily into your daily recipes, from vegetables such as carrots and broccoli to aromatics like garlic and ginger. Additionally, you can also end your meals with a warm cup of comfort courtesy of Nutrabliss by Watsons Tea.
Get quality sleep
Did you know that getting enough sleep helps increase our defense against sickness? Now that we have more time on our hands, we can sometimes easily sacrifice rest for activities such as binge-watching or scrolling through our gadgets up to the wee hours of the morning.
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.
Take vitamins regularly
Some natural sources of vitamins may be hard to come by, considering how difficult it is to buy food. You can count on taking vitamins to strengthen your family’s immunity. We all know Vitamin C is critical for family members of all ages. Pro tip? Stock up on your supply with 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 promote healthy hair and skin. Myra E 400IU, on the other hand, is also rich with 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 or Cherifer PGM with Zinc capsules. I make sure the whole family takes their vitamins in the morning during breakfast.
Top up with supplements
Like vitamins, supplements are a great way to give your health an extra boost. You can easily rely on taking 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 that may cause damage to our 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 so you’re always ready. I always have Lola Remedios, Strepsils, and Prosource Extra Virgin Coconut Oil at home.
