Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Corona (Covid-19 + its new variants) cases in India are increasing day by day. Please take care of yourself & your family. Wear mask and gloves if you go outside. Stay two metres apart, maintain cleanliness, and eat healthy food only. Take more care if you live in Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, West Bengal, and Gujarat.
Here are a few tips to reduce chances of Corona infection or speedy recovery after infection. Please follow them.
How to Boost & maintain your immunity?
1) Stay hydrated
Drink plenty of fluids (water). Staying hydrated helps our body naturally eliminate the bacteria and toxins that causes infection. With the help of water, the oxygen and nutrients are distributed throughout the body, and waste material is flushed out from the body. Thus water also keeps our body clean.
2) Never skip breakfast
Eat healthy homemade breakfast..specially fermented breakfast like idli, dosa, appam. It boosts our immunity because it has high probiotic content.
3) Eat vegetables & fruits
Eat Citrus or Lemon or make its juice to drink, if available. Eat 1 or 2 Bananas everyday as it is natural prebiotic which contains fibres, antioxidants, vitamin C, B6 seasonal fruits like watermelon, melons as it contains 90 % water, vitamins & minerals.
4) High-Protein foods
Include "protein-rich" foods in your meal like curd ( natural probiotic), beans, pulses, nuts ( Almonds, cashew, Peanuts are powerhouse of nutrients), add eggs if your are a non vegetarian.
4) Take good sleep
During sleep, our immune system releases proteins called cytokines, some of which help promote sleep. These cytokines need to increase when you have an infection or inflammation, or when you're under stress. Sleep deprivation may decrease production of these protective cytokines.
5) Minimise stress
Limit social media use ➤ Don't watch & read covid or other negative news whole day or don't discuss news throughout the day with your family or friends..it affects our mental health by creating negativity, stress, anxiety, fear, panic). Tip: Listen our ♪audiobook: Stress Free Living
