World Health Day 2020: Small Steps Towards Your Healthier Self

Every year, 7th April is celebrated as ‘World Health Day’, a day reserved by the World Health Organization with an aim to focus on the issues of global healthcare, by sharing messages that require urgent attention in keeping the world healthy. This year marks the WHO’s 72nd anniversary, which will celebrate and recognize the work of nurses, midwives and remind world leaders of the critical role nurses and midwives play to keeping the world healthy.

As rightly said ‘You are, what you eat’, and What you eat each day directly affects your health now and in the future. Good nutrition plays a key role in helping you lead a healthy lifestyle. Since the food we eat helps maintain your weight and alleviate the risk of chronic diseases such as diabetes, kidney failure, or heart disease, and thereby promoting better health and overall well-being.

On this world Health Day do your bit and support the medical staff by staying indoors, implementing social distancing, and eating healthy. Incorporating small changes into your daily lifestyle, can help you remain calm and continue to protect your health during this time. The following are some tips on how to be healthy and stay active while at home during self-quarantine.

Control Portion Sizes 

It can be confusing to get portion sizes right, especially when cooking multiple dishes during a meal from scratch. Being at home for extended periods during the quarantine, especially with limited activities can also lead to overeating and stress eating. However, a basic rule to keep in mind while overcoming this problem is to use smaller plates and bowls and chew for longer periods.  A basic guideline for consuming protein every meal is to make sure you consume at least ¼ of your plate with protein in each meal to boost your immunity and build muscles.

Pack your meals with Protein

We all know how protein are known to be the building blocks of our body and are responsible for healthy muscles and a strong immune system. Did you know it is essential to consume protein in every meal? Not being able to meet the daily protein requirement leads to fatigue, weakness, and improper functioning of our body. Our traditional meals do not contain as much protein as we need! That’s why it is important to include a variety of sources like eggs, milk, yogurt, fish, chicken, and paneer etc. in our meals.

Drink Enough Water During The Day

Drink water to cut back on unnecessary calories from sugary and carbonated beverages. To add flavor to your water, add a slice of lemon, lime, fresh fruits, or mint. Previous instances have shown that even mild dehydration can harm or body functioning and negatively affect your sleep patterns. Hence, we must ensure to consume enough water during the day to stay hydrated.

Consume Fruits and Green Vegetables

Our lives are all about hustling day in and out, making it easy to reach out to all kinds of junk, processed food that is unhealthy for us. Make sure to include fruits and green vegetables into your diet to get your daily intake of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Besides, leafy greens also help in boosting your gut, which is directly related to your immunity. Fruits are equally important, so make sure you have a generous helping every day and don’t forget to include citrus fruits – they contain the power of Vitamin C. The more colorful you make your plate, the more likely you are to get the vitamins, minerals, and fiber your body needs to boost your immunity and stay healthy.

This time is important for all of us, to build your health and improve our immune system. Make sure to follow these tips for a healthy and happy tomorrow! As rightly said, a stitch in time saves nine.

**No diet or lifestyle modification – aside from physical distancing, and practicing proper hygiene – can protect you from developing COVID-19. The strategies outlined above may boost your immune health, but they don’t protect specifically against COVID-19.
