How to maintain healthy lifestyle during quarantine

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

  • Drink water

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 well

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.

  • Exercise

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.

  • Meditate

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.

  •  Eat Healthy

Ensure plenty of fruits and vegetables, and limit the intake of salt, sugar and fat. Prefer whole grains rather than refined foods.
