5 ways to maintain your health and be safe during COVID-19
COVID-19 has changed a lot about our way of life, so it is important to focus on how to be healthy and safe through the whole pandemic. An active lifestyle is still possible and necessary to promote good mental health and a positive outlook. It is important to plan how you will incorporate regular routines and excursions while ensuring your safety. Here are five ways to take care of yourself and be safe during this time:
Chronic anxiety is one of the most damaging health problems arising from COVID-1
Stay physically active
Regular exercise is essential for good physical and mental health. Doctors stress that staying active is one way to protect against coronavirus. The body's system needs regular physical activity to function properly, so staying fit means you can better fight disease and illness.
Thirty minutes of brisk walking is a major health benefit for people of all ages. No matter what type of exercise you do, be sure to keep a safe distance from other people.
Everyone needs a time-out from pandemic-related stress. Keeping in touch with friends and family is a great way to let go with some personal time to talk and share positive experiences.
Sending or receiving a quick text with uplifting messages provides a lift throughout the day. Ten minutes of silence is also an important way to relax and recover daily.
While COVID-19 restrictions relax somewhat around the country, it is necessary to be vigilant about the safety of others. One of the easiest and most important ways to protect yourself is to wear a mask. The CDC recommends that you always wear a mask in public.
Wash your hands regularly and use hand sanitizer if necessary. Clean surfaces with high contact routinely, which can help eliminate the spread of infection.
Test if you show symptoms of coronavirus or if you are worried you may have been exposed. Free testing is now available in many communities on drive-through and walk-up sites. Get information on the CDC's website or from your local healthcare service about where testing is offered in your area.
