If you are anything like me, I can’t begin my day without taking my daily vitamins. Whether it is vitamin C or elderberry along with other supplements, I rely on Lubbock’s wellness shops such as Natural Health Market, Sister’s Herbs and Market Street. As you visit the health counter in Market Street, ask for the wellness concierge to help get you started and guide you to the right choices for your needs.
Along with vitamins and supplements, the nutrients from a balanced diet will aid in the strength of an immune system needed this flu season. Whether you are the home-cooking type or prefer to get your healthy meals delivered to you, you have options here in the “Hub City!” Lubbock is filled with high-quality markets and grocers with top-notch ingredients. If ordering out, a favorite to try is Healthy Essentials. Call ahead to order or make your way through the drive-thru, as their dining room is closed until April 6.
With the news of local gyms and fitness centers closing up shop until further notice, it’s time to get creative with your workouts. Nothing fights off a weak immune system like a strong body. Luckily for us, businesses like The Ash are holding virtual classes online. If classes aren’t your vibe, there are plenty of walking trails through the variety of parks in Lubbock. Go for a run, take your dog to Canyon Run Dog Park or Hub City Unleashed, and get some fresh air!
Stay healthy and show us how you boost your immune system using #LiveLoveLubbock!
