I would be lying if I said that everything is fine in the world – it is not so. We are facing one of the most difficult times and it seems to have brought a lot of fear to the hearts and minds of Americans and people around the world. Although I think the media is the driving force behind the coronavirus scare, we absolutely need to be aware of our daily interactions and situations that we put ourselves in. People are quarantined, companies close and the DOW is at a low we have. & # 39; I haven't seen it in a long time.
Now I'm not a doctor and I don't pretend to be one on TV. If you feel sick, call your doctor and let them decide what your next measures should be. If possible, stay at home, relax, relax, and recharge your mental and physical batteries – you will need it. The good news is, like most things, that this too will go away. We have to let the coronavirus horror through, and then things slowly come back to normal.
After all, there are a few things to consider when planning your next few days and weeks to prepare you and your family while staying healthy.
Get healthy food
If you want to prevent yourself from getting sick, look at the foods you put in your body. Eating foods that are high in micronutrients is important for your body to function optimally and at the same time receive the nutrients it needs for a healthy immune system.
In addition to buying some items with a longer shelf life (such as rice, whole wheat pasta, canned tuna, frozen protein sources, frozen vegetables, and frozen fruit), you should try to be told to eat as much fresh food and products as possible, locked for a while stay. These fresh foods are loaded with nutrients and helpful antioxidants to keep you healthy.
Take time to relax
Without a doubt, you are probably stressed out about this coronavirus fear. When companies are asked to close for a while, it cannot mean a paycheck or income. This can make you wonder where to get the money for groceries and even keep the roof over your head. It is absolutely stressful.
The thing with stress is that it increases cortisol, which can harm your health. You will want to take some time to relax. This can be sitting in a quiet room, meditating, doing yoga, or even reading a book to further improve your skills and abilities at work or in your company. Conclusion: find some time for yourself and keep the stress under control.
Go outside, exercise, and keep moving
The last thing you want to do with this coronavirus fear is shutdown. And when I say shutdown, I mean stop moving. Sitting on the couch and watching Netflix can be easy for a few weeks, but that won't help you stay healthy, fit, and healthy. Even after a week of watching Netflix, you get bored.
If you are used to exercising, keep exercising. Use resistance bands, body weight exercises, do cardio outdoors when the weather is nice, go to the park, soak up the sun (a natural source of vitamin D), and leave the stuffy house for some fresh air. If you go outside and do a workout, you will stay healthy during this difficult time.
Supplement with a multivitamin and even additional vitamin C.
In addition to your above-mentioned diet, you need to focus on any nutrient gaps you might have during that time. Micronutrients will be especially important during this coronavirus fear because everyone wants to stay healthy and not get sick (even if it is as small as a cold).
Supplying healthy foods and ensuring that what you eat is nutritious is a great idea, but the fact is that we do not consume enough volume or variety in our diet to meet our recommended daily intake of vitamins and Intake minerals to strengthen our immune system and keep it healthy. Many of the foods we should eat, such as B. fresh fruit, contain helpful antioxidants to ward off free radicals and strengthen immunity.
Since we don't take in all the important nutrients we need, it's a good idea to use a multivitamin (every day, not just during this coronavirus fear) and take in extra vitamin C to boost immunity.
Charge your essential needs
I think we can't leave out some of the general basics you need during this coronavirus fear. Make sure you have some important things like hygiene products, soap, shampoo, water, groceries, toilet paper, medical supplies, medicines, chargers for phones and devices and everything else that you would normally use in your everyday life.
While we don't want to panic, we don't want to be unprepared in these difficult times. Listen, nobody really enjoys what's going on in the world or right here in the United States. But we have to make the best of it. If we plan, we'll all be fine. Pull yourself together, help the people around you, and we will emerge stronger from it. Stay healthy!
