Your health and wellness are very important, especially during this lockdown. So let’s take a look at some hacks.
The world is scattered in its views with the spread of Coronavirus. Doubtful of its outcome, and fearful of its effects on everyday lives and the future of humanity. Though the impact of the worldwide lockdown has been widespread and blanketed, some groups have been affected more than others. With the world now staying indoors for an undetermined period, mental and physical wellness has become a priority. Owing to the sudden change in their schedules and lifestyles. Here are some health and wellness tips that will help you get through the pandemic.
Build a good habit
It is said that 21 days is the ideal period to break a bad habit or develop a good one. With the time at hand and movement restrictions, the moment is ideal to instill some discipline in our lives. So, give up those harmful habits and take up healthier alternatives. Regulating sleep schedules, reducing nicotine, reading, are a few examples that can build your health and wellness during this lockdown. A habit not only provides structure to day-to-day life but also helps bring a sense of purpose. Especially for those who might seem to have lost it in this transitional phase.
Take an hour out every day to just sit back, close your eyes, and cut yourself off from the world outside. You can do this with the help of some interesting tools. Like guided meditation apps found online, white-noise tracks on YouTube or any other source of peace for your system. For some, the practice of mindfulness might be novel and seem challenging in the initial stages. But with time and practice, gathering one’s thoughts in the present moment helps bring an overall sense of calm. The trick is not in trying to avoid the negativity around, but in accepting it and approaching it with a rational mind.
Eat healthy, eat consciously
Most businesses have shut shop and only a handful, offering essentials products and services, have been allowed to stay open. So, mindful consumption becomes an important factor when looking at maintaining our lifestyle and helping others do the same. But how does one stay healthy when the guarantee of a balanced meal the following day is foggy? Start by avoiding stress eating, a common reaction to the situation right now. Accept the situation; move on from negative thoughts and tune your eating habits, consciously avoiding that which seems to be triggered by stress. Look for supplementary items, canned items, or non-perishables which are low in artificial sugars, salt, and saturated fats.
Use technology creatively
Technology has it all these days. Cooking classes, live streams of museums and zoos, virtual fitness sessions, doctor consultations, online classes, and more. This allows us to use technology to the fullest, to learn, to share, to communicate and to appreciate. Spend your time on a hobby. Learn an art form you’ve wanted to view and appreciate, people you’ve wanted to stay in touch with, etc. The next step would be to experiment with tools, apps, products, pages, etc. until you find the ideal match.
Positivity and strong support systems are probably going to be the two pillars that will help sustain humanity in these challenging times. But as mankind continues to battle this virus, it is up to us to appreciate those who are fighting on the field. Help the social systems around us and help humanity stand together in the fight.
