10 TIPS TO STAY HEALTHY WHILE YOU’RE STUCK AT HOME

Being on lockdown during a pandemic should not be an excuse to let go of your body and engage in an unhealthy lifestyle. If you have to stay indoors longer than usual, it is even more essential to adopt a healthy lifestyle. In that way, you can avoid putting yourself at risk for certain conditions linked to unhealthy living.

By staying on top of your behavior when you are stuck at home, you can prevent yourself from developing things like diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, and muscle atrophy. Studies have shown that people who do not maintain a healthy lifestyle when stuck at home often find it difficult to resume normal activities after the home period is over.

Going back to work may prove challenging. So if you are going to be held at home, for whatever reason, here are some tips to help you stay healthy

Healthily

You would think that this tip does not require mentioning, but you will be surprised at the things people eat when they are stuck at home. It’s fine to eat junk food once in a while, but going on a junk food bender during a lockdown can cause you many issues. So take some time and plan out your meals and snacks. For every 90% of whole, healthy foods, you can reward yourself with 10% of feel-good fare.

2. Get physical   

Most people mistake physical exercise for body looks. It’s much more than that, exercise helps the body release stress, clear the mind, and it is good for the heart as it gets the blood flowing. When you are stuck at home, exercising can boost your sense of wellbeing and prevent you from suffering from dangerous health conditions like depression and anxiety.

    3. Read books

With online streaming sites being so popular, it is easy to get stuck on the couch and binge-watch tv shows. However, people tend to forget the negative impact of long hours watching tv on the eyes, back, and intellect. In order to stay healthy when you are stuck indoors try and incorporate some books in between your tv shows. Taking time off the screen and moving images can do you a lot of good in as far as your eyes are concerned. Audiobooks can also help with the advantage of doing another activity while listening to the book.

 

4. Feed the mind

Maintaining some level of intellect is another way of staying healthy when stuck at home. There are many ways of keeping your brain active during a lockdown. You could play strategy and logic games that require you to think. You could also enroll in an online course or join forums that discuss highly intellectual topics.

 

 

5. Take care of your mental health

When one is stuck indoors, they risk developing mental health issues, especially if they are alone. Taking care of your mental health is an absolute priority when you are locked down. You need to maintain contact with friends and family if you are going to be stuck indoors for a long time. You do not necessarily need it to be physical contact, video chats, texting, and phone calls can do just fine.

“Prevention Better than Cure”

 

God is in our 'suffering' and in our 'Restoration'

There is no mistaking the facts…God is always available and ready to help us. “His power is as infinite as His love” (Evangelist Franklin Graham).

How can we deny God’s great and marvellous love  for us His people!  Are we going to allow Covid-19 to send us into panic mode, fear, anxiety and denial?  He who knew no sin, suffered a cruel death on the cross of Calvary and bear the pains for our sins, so that we can be restored and sanctified through His sacrificial blood. This should give us hope! Why just a few weeks ago the world celebrated Easter, which according to Christendom’s interpretation, supposed to be a symbol of Christ’s death and resurrection. How short our memories are! That officials can stand-up and declare that God is not in our healing and restoration from the coronavirus. The psalmist David declare that “God is our refuge and strength; He is truly our helper in time of trouble. Therefore, we need not be afraid though the earth gives way and the mountain falls into the heart of the sea… the Lord almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge” (Psalm 46). We will over-come Covid-19 and live to declare God’s wondrous love! This is not the first pandemic our world has been through and it would not be the last. Let’s hold on to the hope that’s in Jesus!
