As we enter a New Year and a new restrictions upon us, your health and wellness is our priority. We are here to help you on your journey as we start the new year together.
This month is about creating new habits and investing in yourself.
Minding your Mental Health:
Your mental wellbeing is about how you’re feeling right now, and how well you can cope with daily life. Our wellbeing can change from moment to moment, day to day, or month to month.
During the Covid19 Pandemic we need to protect our mental health and each other.
One of the ways we can look after our mental health is to make sure we are as physically healthy as we can be. Walking is also a great way to reduce stress and anxiety, stay fit and boost our immune system so we’re less susceptible to infections.
This year, make a New Year’s resolution to quit smoking for good. At this time of year, we know that many smokers make a resolution to quit and Quitting smoking can be challenging, but you can find support for your quit journey where and when you need it, to raise your chances of quitting for good. Speak to your Healthwise Pharmacist on how we can help you quit for good.
We understand that quitting smoking is one of the biggest challenges you’ll face. Using NRT(Nictoine Replacement Theraphy) will help beat the cravings and help tackle these withdrawal symptoms so you can carry on with your day!

Building your Immunity:
A healthy diet is key to a strong immune system and healthy lifestyle in general. This means making sure you eat plenty of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, lean protein and healthy fats.
In addition to providing your immune system the energy it needs, a healthy diet can help ensure you’re getting sufficient amounts of the micronutrients that play a role in maintaining your immune system, including:
- Vitamin B6, found in chicken, salmon, tuna, bananas, green vegetables and potatoes (with the skin)
- Vitamin C, found in citrus fruit, including oranges and strawberries, as well as tomatoes, broccoli and spinach
- Vitamin E, found in almonds, sunflower and safflower oil, sunflower seeds, peanut butter and spinach
Supplementing the diet with certain vitamins, minerals, herbs, and other substances can improve immune response and potentially protect against illness.
