Coronavirus Care

Dr. Sylvia, from Natural Paths for Lymphatic Wellness, in Aurora, IL  shared in their newsletter that they know things haven’t been same lately. With the change and disruptions to our normal lives and daily routines, it is important to focus on self-care and love ourselves.

Here are some top healthy daily habits that can keep you staying sane, fit, and healthy in these times:
Are you partaking in daily health habits to keep you illness-free? Diet and exercise are part of that, but habits extend beyond this that can result in feeling great inside and out. Here are a few of our suggestions to help you apply to your own life.
Meditation – You might think this is an odd habit to reduce illness. However, it can be connected to your emotional and overall health, as it assists in slowing your body down. You can focus on root issues and garner yourself more emotional control. You can calm down from life’s daily issues or problems with work, children, or anything upsetting.
When you don’t deal with issues, your body can become tensed and stressed. This, in turn, increases blood pressure, causes headaches, and leads to a lowered immune system. Simple daily meditation habits can help keep you illness-free.

Journaling – Don’t discredit it! While it can seem tedious, the truth is, journaling can be done in various ways including video journaling. It works because it has a direct connection to stress levels and can reveal what is stress-inducing for you, where you may not have seen an issue.
Using a daily journal process allows one to release stress or concerns and identify trigger points for you to iron out in your life. Reduced stress means calmer body and mind, which improves efficiency and boosts that immune system to fight off any illness!
Hydration – You could be a self-care master, but if you’re still falling ill, check your water intake. Hydration is key because if it’s off, you could be causing bodily stress and affect the functioning of your organs. Your body needs water to work properly. There are many ways to make it easier, too, including using a marked gallon jug or phone apps to measure intake.
By applying these habits to your daily routine, you will start to notice that your immune system strengthens and you will fall ill less often. Keep in mind that a lot of the healthy habits go beyond eating or supplements and more to do with keeping your mind and emotions in check as well.

Staying Calm Amidst COVID-19

As you would be aware, the COVID-19 pandemic is escalating throughout the US, and due diligence and care need to be taken by everyone to help “flatten the curve”. Now is the time to stay indoors, look after yourselves, and stay informed, healthy, and happy. At the time of writing, there have been over 738,000 confirmed cases across the country, and with the death toll predicted to reach 40,000 in the coming weeks, it is an essential time to assess how you’re coping through it all.
The global numbers of infected cases surpass 2 million, and there are economic impacts being caused by the pandemic. Retail employment will take the biggest hit, followed by hotels and restaurants, and the arts, entertainment, and recreation industries. In the US, New York City may lose 475,000 jobs and run $9.7 billion short on tax revenue through mid-2021 because of the coronavirus outbreak, the city’s Independent Budget Office estimated.
Amidst all this, it is important to stay calm and look after yourself so that you develop the resilience to see through this, one day at a time.
Read on for some tips on staying calm during the COVID-19 crisis:
–   follow all rules placed by your local government
–   dispose properly of all used tissues and PPE to maintain great hygiene
–   continue to social distance, more than 1.5 meters away from others
