A global pandemic is a reason for alarm. It’s never been more critical than now to take good care of yourself physically, mentally, and emotionally. You and your family’s health is dependent on your ability to care for yourself.
What You Need to Do to Avoid Becoming Ill
The highly contagious nature of the virus is alarming. It can spread quickly and without notice. People may not even show symptoms of the coronavirus, making it even more troublesome to deal with.
Here is how to make your health a priority during a global pandemic:
- Go the extra mile to protect yourself and your family. Do not leave home unless it is necessary to do so. Have everyone follow the same rules about limiting contact with people outside your immediate household.
- Limit the amount of news that you watch each day. It’s important to know what is going on each day. It can, however, be overwhelming to watch or listen to for hours at a time.
- Work from home, if possible. If your boss has given you this option, take advantage of it. It may take some getting used to but can be manageable if you find a quiet place to work.
- Eat nourishing foods and stay hydrated. You need vitamins, minerals, and nutrients to thrive. You also need H2O to flush out toxins and keep your mind clear.
- Rest when you can. Don’t feel guilty if you need to take a nap. You need to listen to your body’s needs.
Follow the CDC’s guidelines for social distancing, washing your hands, and wearing a mask. Each can lower your risk of becoming ill from COVID-19. Taking the time to clean and disinfect your countertops at home as well as your desktop and surface areas at work helps tremendously, too.
