The Impact of Corona Virus Attack-

The entire bunch of affected (by the situation) and infected people are afraid of a solitary deathbed. They are mainly scared of the unknown. This scenario is affecting their mental health more than anything else.

Let us Chalk out a Routine to Follow-

Generally, it is advisable to make 5 parts of the day.

  • Work Time
  • Time for a new skill to learn
  • Me Time
  • Time for Friends association
  • Time for the near and dear ones, the society, the nature at large.

This healthy bifurcation of our everyday chores will eventually release the stress and tension within us. Here it is the remedy only. You can still feel depressed. So you can reach out to your family members, the one whom you feel more connected with, friends, or finally to an expert to find a solution to this low feeling. But never try to be hidden. The smaller negligence can cause serious harm to yourself and your immediate family.

Keep Yourself Motivated and Energized-

We all hate the one morning term. That is a Workout. Fitness revolves around this only but at the same time, it is not always necessary to follow a strict regime. But it is necessary to get out of the bed and take a deep breath and start the day afresh. Keeping your body active is the key.  Find the reason to keep yourself active. A Japanese secret to this is Ikigai. If I am not wrong at all, this is the time to explore the bliss of it.

The number of cases found to be visibly reduced in Mumbai, with the number of daily increases reduced to 700 per day. But according to Dr. Muffli Ladakwala, people are getting their blood tests and scans done without actually going for the COVID tests. Hence the declining margins cannot be 100% true.

Do Home Remedies such as Haldi and Kadha eventually help in increasing immunity?

 The age-old and effective home remedies are being prescribed in the sense of increasing body immunity so that the body is protected from the virus attack. According to the experts, the possibilities are null. Dr. Siddhant has recommended not overdoing anything out of the hype. A balanced meal is key only. He added that if the age-old to date home remedies are followed relentlessly, it is not going to give any benefits overnight. No such miracle is in fact possible in a short span. But yes, we must follow our balanced diet regularly with the right amount of nutritional values and we do not skip our meals.
