Covid-19 came from nowhere and has taken a toll on our lives. The pandemic has spread in every corner of the world and is giving sleepless nights to many. Scientists and researchers are working hard to develop effective treatments and vaccine for the same but all these things are still in their initial stages and we will have to wait for long before these are out and available for all. The fear of coronavirus has infected the minds of millions around the world and it seems to be more dangerous and harmful than the virus itself. The times are difficult but we need to fight back with wisdom and strength instead of stressing out.

COVID-19 – How to take precautions

If you are among those who are having a hard time dealing with this situation the information shared here will prove to be useful for you.

Focus on Mental Health and Peace

The situation is undoubtedly stressful. Lack of effective and proven coronavirus treatment and the highly contagious nature of this virus have created a tensed atmosphere globally. It is but natural for us to check news frequently so as to know if there is any progress on the vaccine development. However, instead of getting any positive news we end up absorbing a lot of negativity as we see the cases rising rapidly.

In order to keep ourselves mentally strong and healthy we require shifting our focus from the negative to the positive. This can only be done if we stop fretting over the situation and channelize our energy into something that makes us happy.

As a wise man said, “When you can’t control what is happening around you – challenge yourself to control the way you respond. That is where your power lies”. So, instead of juggling between news channels all through the day why not utilise the time to indulge in your favourite hobby? In addition to this, you must also squeeze in some time for physical exercise. Also, practice deep breathing and meditate to calm your mind and ensure mental health.

Boost Immunity

Coronavirus may be contagious but it is not deadly. If you have a strong immunity you can fight it and recover. Therefore, it is time to build immunity by eating nutritious food and following a healthy lifestyle. Fresh fruits, green leafy vegetables, milk, nuts and other food items rich in various micronutrients should form a part of your daily diet. It is important to steer clear of junk food especially at this time. The importance of regular physical exercise has already been stated above. Together, these practices shall help you fit and healthy.

Use High Quality Disinfectants and Sanitizers

Personal hygiene is imperative to prevent Covid infection. You must use high quality disinfectants to keep your surroundings clean. Besides, the need to sanitize hands frequently is being emphasized by health experts. However, don’t fall prey to low quality products. It is best to check their review on Consumerstash.com or other similar platforms before purchasing them.

Remember, it is time to stay alert but not panic.  Boost immunity, ensure personal hygiene and above all stay positive!
