Due to the pandemic Covid-19, we all have been instructed by the medical professionals and the central government to practice self-isolation. Maintaining social distancing is mandatory for all of us to prevent the transmission of this deadly virus. To flatten the curve, everyone needs to stay inside their homes and take the precautionary measures.
Today, Varanasi Hospital will share some tips to stay physically and mentally healthy during the home quarantine.
Eat nutritious meals
Eat nutritious home-cooked meals. Do not prepare cheat meals, like pakodas, samosas, jalebis, etc daily at home. However, you can eat your favourite cheat meal once a week as per your desire.
Practice great hygiene
You need to take great care of hygiene during the home quarantine period. Wash your hands at all times with liquid soap and running water for at least 20 seconds. If washing hands is not possible then use a 70% alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Do not use hand sanitizer before cooking as alcohol-based hand sanitizers are highly inflammable. Keep your surroundings clean and disinfect every item regularly.
Avoid unnecessary touching yourself
It’s very easy for the virus to enter your body. You can easily insert the virus inside your body by touching your eyes, ears, nose, and mouth. If you have to touch your face then do it with freshly washed hands.
Use disposable tissue papers for coughing and sneezing
Always cough and sneeze on a disposable tissue and throw it in the closed trash can to avoid any infections.
Maintain 6 feet distance
It does not matter wherever you go or wherever you are, always maintain 6 feet distance from everyone.
Exercise at home. You can either do skipping or chair exercises. If you do not prefer exercising, then do household chores on your own.
Take care of your mental health
Your mental health should not take a backseat even when you are quarantined at home. Practice your favourite hobby, play indoor games, do household chores, opt for video conferencing, do yoga and meditation to take care of your mental health.
It is always better to be safe than sorry. Varanasi Hospital, a multi-speciality hospital in Varanasi is always present to provide everyone with optimum healthcare.
