Staying Healthy during a Pandemic

Updated: Jul 3, 2022


- Maintaining good health doesn't happen by accident. It requires work, smart lifestyle choices, and the occasional checkup and test.


FOOD AND DIET - A healthy diet is rich in fiber, whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables, "good" or unsaturated fats, and omega-3 fatty acids. These dietary components decrease inflammation, which can damage tissue, joints, artery walls, and organs. Going easy on processed foods is another element of healthy eating. Sweets, foods made with highly refined grains, and sugar-sweetened beverages can cause spikes in blood sugar that can lead to early hunger. High blood sugar is linked to the development of diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and even dementia. There are so many different dietary theories and bio-individuality is very important. Finding the right dietary lifestyle that works for you is exciting and can lead to long lasting results.



BENEFITS OF PHYSICAL ACTIVITY - Physical activity is also necessary for good health. It can greatly reduce your risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, breast and colon cancer, depression, and falls. Physical activity improves sleep, endurance, and even sex. Aim for 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise every week, such as brisk walking. Strength training, important for balance, bone health, controlling blood sugar, and mobility, is recommended 2-3 times per week.

COPING STRATEGY FOR STRESS - Finding ways to reduce stress is another strategy that can help you stay healthy, given the connection between stress and a variety of disorders. There are many ways to bust stress. Try meditation, mindfulness, yoga, dancing, playing on weekends, and taking stays/vacations.

Finally, establish a good relationship with a primary care physician. If something happens to your health, a physician you know —and who knows you — is in the best position to help. They can recommend tests to check for hidden cancer or other conditions.



IMPACT OF LIFESTYLE ON HEALTH

Let’s talk about interesting facts about Lifestyle and Health.


HEALTHY LIFESTYLE FACT

Lifestyle refers to the characteristics of inhabitants of a region in a special time and place. It includes day to day behaviors and functions of individuals in job, activities, fun and diet. According to the World Health Organization ( WHO), 60% of related factors to individual health and quality of life are correlated to lifestyle. Millions of people follow an unhealthy lifestyle. Hence, they encounter illness, disability and even death. Problems like metabolic diseases, joint and skeletal problems, cardio-vascular diseases, hypertension, obesity, and so on, can be caused by an unhealthy lifestyle. The relationship of lifestyle and health should be highly considered.


Today, wide changes have occurred in the lives of all people. Malnutrition, unhealthy diet, smoking, alcohol consumption, stress and so on, are the presentations of unhealthy lifestyles that are used as the dominant form of lifestyle.


Therefore, according to the existing studies, it can be said that lifestyle has a significant influence on physical and mental health of human beings. There are different forms of such influences.


Variables of lifestyle that influence our health can be categorized in some items:


Diet and Body Mass Index (BMI): Diet is the greatest factor in lifestyle and has a direct and positive relation with health. Poor diet and its consequences like obesity is the common healthy problem in urban societies. Unhealthy lifestyle can be measured by BMI.

Application of modern technologies: Advanced technology facilitates the life of human beings. Misuse of technology may result in unpleasant consequences. For example, using computers and other devices up to midnight, may affect the pattern of sleep and it may disturb sleep. Addiction to using mobile phones is related to symptoms of depression.


Recreation: Leisure pass time is a sub factor of lifestyle. Neglecting leisure can bring negative consequences. With disorganized planning and unhealthy leisure, people endanger their health.


Study: Study is the exercise of the soul. Placing study as a factor in lifestyle may lead to more physical and mental health. Keeping the mind active could slow the process of dementia. In regard to each factor, systematic planning at the micro and macro level can be established. It can provide a social and individual healthy lifestyle.
