As new COVID-19 cases continue to emerge in the WHO European Region, many healthy individuals are being requested to stay at home in self-quarantine.
Here is how to maintain healthy lifestyle during quarantine
Keeping hydrated is crucial for health and well-being. WHO recommends drinking water instead of sugar-sweetened beverage. When dehydrated, airways are restricted by the body in an effort to minimize water loss. This can make asthma and allergies worse.
Sleep plays an important role in the functioning of immune system, metabolism and even our learning.Getting a good 8-hour sleep is a must to keep both, our mind and body healthy.
Staying at home for prolonged periods of time can pose a significant challenge for remaining physically active. So, you should take short active breaks during the day, follow an online exercise class., reduce your sedentary time by standing up whenever possible.
Meditation and deep breaths can help you remain calm. When we meditate, we inject far-reaching and long-lasting benefits into our lives: We lower our stress levels, we get to know our pain, we connect better, we improve our focus, and we’re kinder to ourselves.
Ensure plenty of fruits and vegetables, and limit the intake of salt, sugar and fat. Prefer whole grains rather than refined foods.
