Health Oct 13, 2020
As we all are facing pandemic Covid-19 for the past couple of months which has a knock-on effect in many areas of our lives, including our bodies and diet. We should all be making an effort to look after ourselves in quarantine, and it’s easier than you may think. To prevent the possibility of developing any long-term health conditions, there are steps we can call take to improve our diet and exercise regularly. However, there are simple steps you can take. We have at least one more month to go and it is important to try to keep our diet and physical activity right.
In fact, now is the perfect time to work on that summer body you’ve been dreaming of, or even picking up some new healthy eating habits.
Here Are Some Tips How To Get Healthy Lifestyle During Pandemic Covid-19:
1. Get Your Snacking Right:
Sugary treats like ice-cream, cake, and custard are high in calories, and can easily add up throughout the day. Instead, try introducing yourself to healthier snacks such as popcorn or low-fat yogurt. Other low-calorie treats you can eat between meals include a handful of nuts or two squares of dark chocolate.
2. Exercise Regularly:
Just because your local gym or fitness center is closed, doesn’t mean you can’t get moving indoors. In fact, an upside of the lockdown is that it has revealed several innovative ways to get exercising at home and bring the gym to you.
Or if you weren’t a gym-goer beforehand don’t worry – with more time on your hands than ever before start building exercise into your daily routine. It’s never too late to get healthy.
3. Sun & Supplements (for optional vitamin D):
Vitamin D is essential for our bones and overall bodily health. At least 15 minutes in direct sunlight could help most of the population get a sufficient amount of vitamin D. Especially one early morning direct sunlight is more effective & we can get a sufficient amount of vitamin D out of that.
4. Frozen Foods Are A Good Option:
If your local supermarket or street vendor has been limited in the number of fresh fruits and vegetables on offer – then frozen alternatives could do the trick. Frozen foods retain their vitamins and minerals, and could, therefore, be a healthier and cheaper option to fresh products.
5. Keep Your Daily Energy Intake Right:
Gaining weight and subsequently having some health risks is the result of eating more than we need every day for some time. We always stress how essential moderation is. No foods should be forbidden but rather eaten in small amounts.
The technology could help here as well. Using online apps to enter and analyze the foods you eat has been shown by many studies to help monitor and lose weight. These apps could offer a suitable option, especially during this time.
