Hello everyone! I am back with a part-2 of the blog.
We all know how poor Delhi’s air quality is right now, and how we all are battling the obvious symptoms.
So now, why not talk about how we can protect ourselves or what we can do to help.
Here I am, sharing my opinion not just as a blogger, but also as a doctor.
Protect yourselves :
1. Wear masks-
Don’t, I repeat don’t step outside without masks. They are easily available everywhere these days and are extremely reasonable.
You can go for the use-and-throw, one time use variety or the reusable ones. That is totally up to you.
But these masks are super super essential.
2. Avoid smoking-
As if the air quality isn’t hazardous enough to your health, do you really want any more contributing factors?
We know how harmful smoking can be. And that on top of Delhi’s air can be extremely harmful.
It’s the best advice, and may even be motivation for some, but please avoid smoking.
Also, those extra filtered cigarettes are no less. Don’t fool yourself.
Just as smoking is harmful, so is passive smoking. For those of you who don’t know, passive smoking is more harmful. Yes, you’ve read it right. There are no filters to protect you when you are a passive smoker. So beware!
3. Eat healthy-
While the pollution makes you vulnerable to numerous infections and diseases, you can try and avoid them as much as possible.
Having a strong immunity is the key to it.
Try and include the following in your meals
Oranges, amla(indian gooseberry), broccoli, kiwi and bell peppers are some of the richest sources.Food rich in antioxidants:
Drink plenty of fluids:
4. Avoid going outdoors-
No matter how much you love the concept of fresh air and evening walks, avoid them for some time.
You have to trust me when I say, staying indoors is a safer option these days.
Now, just because you have to stay indoors, doesn’t give you an excuse to avoid exercising.
Also, if you just can’t skip your daily walk, do it in the morning.
Include meditation and yoga in your workout regime.
6. Air purifiers-
Get an air purifier for your home now! They make a lot of difference and are very essential these days.
There are plenty of options available in the market, get one that suits your needs and budget.
My personal recommendations are the Dyson or Philips ones.
So, stay healthy and protect yourselves.
Love to you all ❤️
