Ironically, as it clearly seen from these-days messages, videos and posts on social media, for many people it is a time for staying not-healthy at home, like going towards self-destruction: over-eating, eating junk food, over-thinking, over-sleeping, searching on internet all day long for negative news, forgetting about daily-routine personal hygiene, watching TV programs, going to sleep later than 10 pm, felling to be bored, feeling alone and scared, dizzy, shaky, feeling inner stress and fears, experiencing bad dreams and nightmare, depressions signs, feeling a victim of the circumstances, drinking alcohol, …
We ignore directions towards positivity, but further on are surprised why nobody told us about them. To be precise, it is important not to know everything, but to know where to look for the reliable information.
As for now, the very root of the need to stay at home these days, is to stay safe and healthy while COVID-19 pandemic is out there. On March 21st, World health Organisation (WHO) issued the key recommendations on how to withstand quarantine and self-isolation while being at home.
WHO recommendations for staying healthy at home during COVID-19 pandemic:
- Eat healthy to boost your immune system.
- Limit alcohol and sugary drinks.
- Don’t smoke. It can exacerbate COVID-19 symptoms and increase your risk of getting seriously sick.
- Exercise for at least 30 minutes a day for adults and an hour a day for kids.
- If you’re allowed to go outside, go for a walk, run or bike ride while keeping a safe distance from others.
- If you can’t leave the house, dance, do some yoga or walk up and down the stairs.
- People working from home shouldn’t sit too long in the same position.
- Take a 3 minute break every 30 minutes.
- Get your mind off of the crisis. Listen to music, read a book or play a game.
Raise your hand who are implementing all the points daily now!!!:)
