No matter how good (or bad) you'd describe your health, one thing is for sure: a little boost is ALWAYS a good idea. Whether that's reading a new, motivating book, or listening to a song that speaks to your soul, there are plenty of resources to help your health thrive on any given day.
As coronavirus continues to work its way through the United States, we're all growing intensely aware of how our bodies are feeling. Is that cough allergies or am I suddenly a threat to my roommates? One way or the other, masses of people are buying immunity shots, stocking up on vitamins, and freaking out that they haven't done "enough" as soon as the sniffles make an appearance.
It's crucial for all of us to do what we can to boost our immune system — not just in times of global pandemic, but for the sake of our long-term health. A strong immune system can ward off disease, and taking the steps to strengthen yours is sure to provide a little peace of mind as well.
Each week, we're bringing you the best resources and influencers to give you a health boost. Here's what we're following this week for boosting immune systems.
