No matter what happens, stay healthy

By Minh Nhat

The ongoing coronavirus pandemic is turning daily life upside down, with anxiety and fear affecting people in many parts of the world. But everyone is joining hands to slow the spread of the virus by introducing tough measures, such as quarantining those coming from virus-hit areas or suspected of infection, closing entertainment venues, suspending business operations, requiring all people arriving in the country to make health declarations, and treating confirmed coronavirus cases.

At this difficult time, multiple enterprises, organizations and individuals have sent out an inspirational message of “Living positively” to local residents in the fight against Covid-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus.

Improving immunity

The immune system, a host defense system of the human body, will weaken when people get older or have inappropriate diets. Immunodeficiency can expose people to diseases. It is necessary to accumulate antibodies while the coronavirus pandemic is raging.

Given the ongoing pandemic, the Ministry of Health and the National Institute of Nutrition have advised that daily diets should ensure adequate nutrients, including protein sourced from fish, fish oil, cooking oil made from fish, meat, eggs and milk; vitamins A, C, D and E; and minerals such as iron, zinc and selenium.

In addition, consumers should enhance the use of food and spices containing special elements, such as garlic, onion, turmeric, citronella, mushroom and seaweed, to boost the immune system by activating cytokines and macrophages. Flavonoid-rich food such as spicy vegetables, broccoli, leaf mustards, apples and green tea also help strengthen the immune system.

The National Institute of Nutrition has also advised locals to care about food safety, make dishes at home and ensure hygiene in eating. Further, it is necessary to ensure sufficient nutrition for elderly people, children and those suffering from chronic diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure and Parkinson's, as they are vulnerable to coronavirus infection.

Healthy diets can help prevent Covid-19 infection

Benefits of deep sleep

According to Matthew Walker, director of the Center for Human Sleep Science at the University of California, Berkeley, sleeping well means falling in love with everything and being able to do everything.

Deep sleep will help regenerate energy, enhance learning ability, improve memory, control emotions, increase life expectancy, stimulate creativity, improve concentration and reduce stress. Especially, it also helps strengthen the immune system, which is extremely important at a time when Covid-19 is showing no sign of slowing.

Good sleep is necessary

News about Covid-19 has caused anxiety and fear among people, making them difficult to sleep well.

People should stay calm, maintain a relaxed mood and regularly eat food that is good for sleep, such as kiwifruit, almonds, bananas, honey, fish oil or fish-based cooking oil rich in omega 3 fatty acids, yogurt, oats and eggs.

Doing exercises and thinking positively

Physical and mental health is closely connected. If we are in good health, we will feel comfortable and work harder.
Life will be happier and healthier if people combine physical and mental exercises. Therefore, regular workouts are the best way to stay healthy.

Positive energy is important.

“No matter what happens, stay healthy” is a message of encouragement for individuals in the fight against the Covid-19 outbreak. Good sleep, healthy diets, daily exercises and positive thinking and actions can help people lead a healthy and happy life. With good health, people can overcome difficulties and challenges.
