One sure fact we would all agree with is that the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the world as we know it and we must all adapt to survive in the new world. As much as we also believe it will eventually pass, with efforts to find solutions getting stronger, we can still remain safe and make the best of the situation.
Therefore, it is important to understand that whenever you have to step out, always remember these 7 key measures to protect yourself from contacting the coronavirus and help limit the spread.
1. Wash your hands regularly
This particular measure will never be mentioned enough, because washing your hands regularly with soap and water helps fight off germs you might have unconsciously come in contact with.
2. Use alcohol-based hand sanitizers
This is equally important -Especially if you can’t get access to soap and water. Some people still use soap & water, as well as hand sanitizers.
3. Continue to wear your face mask
Wearing a face mask can save you the chances of getting infected as some infected individuals do not show symptoms. So, whenever you go out, always wear your facemask
4. Keep a measurable physical distance
Maintain at least 2 metres distance between you and the next person but be polite about it, especially when you’re in crowded places like the Bank, Supermarkets or other essential service providers, to minimize the chances of getting infected.
5. Maintain a good personal hygiene
A clean environment is never friends with germs. Cultivating a habit of maintaining a clean and healthy environment can help fight against germs, and consequently, the virus. Always disinfect frequently touched surfaces.
6. Boost your immune system
When you have a strong immune system, your body can help fight off illnesses and diseases. Maintain a healthy eating habit. Go for nutritional foods that support your system. Take enough water to stay hydrated and possibly, start exercising to keep your body in shape against illnesses.
7. Stay off stress and keep your mental health intact
This simply expects that you stay away from anything that would get you too worked up; either you’re working from home or otherwise. Instead, invest your time on what gives positive energy, and your money too.
Stay at home if you can afford to and remain positive at all times. Stay safe.
