HOW CAN WE STAY SAFE & PREVENT FURTHER SPREAD?


Here at the 5 preventive measures you need to follow to stay safe and healthy at home:


1: Maintain Personal Hygiene


Maintain persona hygiene

It’s important to wash your hands frequently with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds. Sanitize your hands after coming in contact with commonly touched surfaces like a countertop or doorknob. Do not touch your face, eyes, nose or mouth as these are the first entry-points for the virus. Keep your nails clean and cut. Avoid handshakes or hugs with outsiders. A Namaskar is the most hygienic, contactless gesture to greet your loved ones.


2: Eat Fresh, Healthy, Home-Cooked Meals


Eat fresh, healthy, home-cooked meals

Enjoy freshly prepared, home-cooked meals. Eat a healthy, balanced diet that includes lots of green and colourful vegetables and fruits, whole grains, nuts and seeds, and protein. Do not consume raw salads and opt for lightly steamed vegetable salads instead. Have clear soups or rich soups with beetroot, carrot, pumpkin and herbs. Stay hydrated with lots of fluids such as coconut water, kokum, lemonade or turmeric milk. Add immunity-boosting and healing spices and herbs like mint, coriander, pepper, clove, cinnamon, turmeric and black salt to your preparations.


3: Exercise & Practise Deep Breathing


Exercise and practice deep breathing

Stay active, dance, run, take up yoga, meditate and practise breathing exercises (pranayam) to strengthen your immune system, improve your physical fitness, boost your blood circulation and de-stress your mind. Stay positive and do not panic or overthink.


4: Keep Your Home & Surroundings Clean


Keep your home and surroundings clean

You may have heard the adage, ‘cleanliness is next to godliness’. A clean home is a reflection of great health and wealth. Keep your home, surroundings, society, community and country beautiful and clean.



5: Boost Your Immunity Naturally


Boost immunity naturally

According to the ancient science of Ayurveda, the best way to prevent any disease is by building one’s immunity! Some of the Ayurvedic medicinal preparations to boost your immune system naturally are Mahasudarshan kadha, Suvarna kalpa, Pippali kalp, Chyavanprash, Tribhuvan Kirti rasa and Laxmi Vilas rasa. Follow the dosage as per your age and the vaidya’s advice only.
