The global pandemic has transformed the way we live and claimed millions of lives across the globe. People have become accustomed to working from home, wearing masks, limiting social contact, and keeping up with the latest news regarding deaths and levels of incubation.

However, it isn’t just the physical changes in people’s lives that matter, there are also emotional changes as people feel more alone, and many struggle to cope with the current situation. The good news is that it is still possible to survive and flourish, allowing you to take care of yourself and others.

You simply need to adopt healthy habits that will keep your mind and body in good shape for the future.

1. Be Conscious of Touch
This pandemic can spread through touch. You touch things that someone else has and pick up bacteria. This bacteria is then transmitted into your body when you touch your face. The simple fact is that most people touch their faces upwards of 20 times an hour. That is a lot of opportunities to spread disease.

You can’t stop touching everything but you can think about what you touch. This will help you to reduce your contact with other objects when you don’t need to. It will also help you to stop touching your face as much.

2. Carry Hand Sanitizer

Washing your hands with soap and water is an effective way to eliminate bacteria that cause disease. However, you can’t always have access to soap and water. When you are out you need to carry hand sanitizer with you and use it when necessary.

It’s a good idea to avoid over-using it but it should be used after you have touched surfaces that other people have already touched.

3. Drink Plenty of Water
In the rush to prevent bacteria from spreading many people are neglecting their own health. This increases the risk of complications if you do become ill. In fact, being rundown will increase the likelihood of contracting an infection.

Your body is 60% water and it’s vital to the process of getting nutrients into cells and toxins out. Of course, the better the quality of the water the better it is for your health. That is why so many people are having filters fitted and starting to use devices such as water coolers, water dispenser, and other things with built-in filters.

4. Avoid Snacking
The problem with confinements and an inability to undertake everyday functions is that it can quickly become boring. This leads to a need to snack to pass the time. Unfortunately, this leads to weight gains which increase the likelihood of an array of age-related diseases.

Avoid snacking to stay healthy.

5. Mental Exercises
Finally, it is not just your body that you need to look after. You should also be doing mental exercises to keep your mind sharp. It will help you to avoid emotional issues connected with the change in life circumstances. Mental exercises include crosswords, learning new skills, and challenging yourself mentally.
