Staying Healthy During the Coronavirus Pandemic
The world has changed, but we’re in this together. During these unprecedented times, our office is still open, and we’ll continue to bring you the healthy Stevita Naturals products you love. We have taken the necessary precautions by working in shifts so that no more than one member of our staff is in the office at a time. We are also disinfecting our environment twice a day to keep our employees and you safe. Our thoughts and prayers are with our Stevita Naturals partners and consumers all over America.
During these uncertain times, there are things you can do besides washing your hands and wearing a mask in crowded spaces to stay healthy and increase your immune system during the outbreak.
Eat a Healthy Diet
Consuming healthy foods has been shown to reduce the risk of illness and disease, as well as ward off depression. The best diets are high in fruits, vegetables and whole grains, and low in sugar. A balanced diet ideally includes a variety of foods high in vitamins A, B, C, D and E, as well as iron and zinc.
Exercise is linked to a slew of health benefits, including increased protection from heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and stroke. It can also help to improve your mood and reduce stress levels. Aim for a minimum of 30 minutes of moderate exercise per day.
Self-care is especially important during times when stress and anxiety levels are running high. Taking time to relax and focus on activities that you enjoy is important for both your physical and mental well-being. Take the time to engage in interests that you find calming like gardening, meditation, or reading.
Get Enough Sleep
Studies show that people who get less than six to seven hours of sleep at night are at a greater risk of developing diseases. Sleep keeps your heart healthy, may help prevent cancer and reduces stress and inflammation. Sleep is also known to curb depression and help the body repair itself.
If you’re a smoker or vape, there couldn’t be a better time to kick the habit. When you stop smoking lung function improves, the heart benefits and life expectancy increases.
