Life has come to a standstill ever since the pandemic has engulfed our lives. We are witnessing lost grounds in humanity and accepting the “new normal”. Never did we dream of being locked up in our homes and converse with the ceilings, square walls or the gardens and remain intrigued by our devices. A mutant virus has not only propagated the fatality rates across the nations but has reinstated the economy to a virtual era. The young youths who are known as the drivers of change have become dependent on online learning to step ahead in the race of life.

The members of the nation struggle at their best to keep the countrymen safe. But, it is the due responsibility of the citizens to follow the steps towards a carefree lifestyle and oust the cloud of a deadly virus. There are certain preventive measures that a person should follow to stay fit and healthy.

Staying Active

The very first step that an individual should take towards the journey of a healthy life is staying active. Since social distancing can be a threat to life lately, yet people can enjoy the serene nature and watch the blooming of flowers in their leisure times. Going for a morning or evening walk elevates the euphoria of the mind and triggers the soul. Different types of activities such as skipping, swimming can be practised at home without the requirement of any gym. It helps to keep the negative thoughts away and boost confidence in oneself. This can be one of the best practices of keeping the minds and souls fit and healthy.

Enough sleep

Good sleep is the need of the hour. Nowadays, people have been intrigued by laptops and mobiles that have hampered their health.

An adult should sleep for a minimum of seven hours a day to regain positivity and excel in life. It will reduce the risks of heart diseases and also paves the way to optimal health and lifestyle. If a person is deprived of sleep, he or she may take ample time to recover from the disease and the side effects can be fatal.

Proper diet

Following a proper diet along with adequate rest is the most integral step to self-healing. If a person wants to stay away from any deadly disease or recover soon then they should consume more green leafy vegetables and foods loaded with carbohydrates and minerals. Avoid eating any stale or junk food because food cooked under unhygienic conditions will hamper the overall health of an individual. So, it is very important to cook the food after bringing it home and washing it properly under tap water kills the germs and boiling can also be followed to reduce the activation of bacteria.

Proper care
