The summer sun is over, we’re halfway through Sober October and we no longer have an excuse for an after-work rooftop beverage!
Autumn doesn’t have to be so blue. This is the time of year, with pumpkin spice lattes and soups making their way back into your diet.
As the clocks go forward your body is adjusting to the change in temperature and trying to defend you against catching a seasonal cold and flu, but it is important that you feel 100% you.
So where do you start?
Having a strong foundation with a healthy immune system can be beneficial, helping to defend you against infections.
Along with the change in seasons, for many people, this comes with a change in mood. How do the seasons affect your mood?
Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is when your mood is affected by the changing of the seasons with less light and shorter days. Symptoms of SAD include low energy levels, less optimism, less motivation and difficulty concentrating.
Optimising wellness isn’t just about physical fitness but also mental wellness. How we think and what our minds consume on a daily basis can affect us every day. Therefore we are offering our subscription customers access to the platform, 87% for free. 87% is a mental fitness measurement app which helps to address the psychological elements of wellness.
Managing stress can have a huge impact on your immune system and increased stress can reduce resistance to fighting off infections. 87% can be used to help manage and reduce stress levels and help create awareness of lifestyle patterns that may be contributing to stress.
Some implementations can be used to reduce and prevent symptoms of SAD.
This includes light therapy, exercise and sufficient intake of key nutrients.
For people with SAD and non-seasonal depression, bright light therapy has been used as an effective intervention. Artificial light can alter the levels of the stress hormone cortisol which can change the expression of many genes which are involved in inflammation in the body.
We want to promote a healthy lifestyle as a means of looking after your health and care for your body’s needs. It is important to make sure you look after your body and mind to promote good health and help you fight illness.
Interventions which can help to support the immune system include having a healthy gut, reducing consumption of high sugar foods and ensuring you get plenty of sleep.
Your digestive system and immune system are intrinsically linked which is why having a healthy gut supports a healthy immune system. Foods which are high in sugar can impact the uptake of vitamin C, thereby impacting the immune system.
Making sleep and rest a priority can often be difficult, but it is one of the best things you can do for your immune system.
