Health Matters: Keep safe and healthy during COVID-19-VPA Australia


Now a year after the COVID-19 pandemicoutbreak, we find astronger andshared global awareness for the importance of our overall health and hygiene protocols to avoid getting sick. Building a healthy lifestyle is vital for us to maintain our health and wellbeing during these challenging times. 

Here’s a quick checklist to ensure you’re all set on the path to a healthier lifestyle. 

Boost your immune system


Our immune system works todefend the body against invading toxins and bacteria so strengthening it is key. A great way to do so is by trading off unhealthy habits for a healthier lifestyle by consuming fresh and nutritious food, engaging in regular exercise, and getting good sleep.In the midst of the pandemic stress and anxiety, we know how hard it can be to keep this up but we’re here to give you a few tips to make it easy. 

You may already have these immune boosters lying around the kitchen, if not, remember to grab some at your local grocery store and incorporate them into your homemade meals. 

  • Citrus fruits – high in Vitamin C 
  • Capsicums
  • Broccoli – issupercharged with vitamins and minerals. It is packed with vitamins A, C, and E, as well as fiber and many other antioxidants. 
  • Garlic 
  • Ginger – helps decreases inflammation. 
  • Spinach – packed with numerous antioxidantsand also rich in Vitamin C. 
  • Yogurt – good source of vitamin D and probiotic cultures that strengthen the digestive track. 
  • Turmeric – is an anti-inflammatory. Itcanhelp decrease exercise-induced muscle damage. 
  • Green Tea – good source of amino acid L-Theanine 

Sometimes when we fail to get the right nutrients from our food, a great way to boost your immune system is by taking supplements. We have created a list of VPA supplements for health and wellbeinghere. 

This includes:

Stay active


Whetheryou’re huddled at home or not, it’s important to look for ways to stay active for both your physical and mental health or emotional wellbeing. Tune in to online home workoutsor workout routines with your gym via video link to stay connected with coaches/gym mates and get active from the convenience of your home. Or perhaps, head out for a quick run in the neighborhood while still observing social distance protocols. 

According theDepartment of Health, “where there islow community transmission of COVID-19, wearing a mask in the community when you are well is not generally recommended. 

However, where there is significant community transmission (as determined by jurisdictional public health authorities), you may choose, or be required to, wear a mask. If physical distancing is difficult to maintain, for example on public transport, covering your face with a mask can provide some extra protection. 

VPA is proud to announce that we have produced disposable face masks for you to have ready wherever you go.
