5 Tips To Improve Your Immunity For Keeping Coronavirus At Bay
The outbreak of the deadly coronavirus has created an uproar not just in India but around the globe. It has affected the global economy and has disrupted the lives of many. No cure for the disease has been found so far. However, there are ways in which we can keep the virus at bay. Self-isolation, social distancing and being in a state of quarantine have proved to effective ways in preventing the disease. While this disease is fatal enough to cause death, it can be overpowered only through collective conscience and awareness regarding the virus. The virus is known to affect those with weak immunity and therefore we need to follow certain preventive measures to avoid this risk. Here are a few immunity-boosting tips that can help you stay fit and fine and keep the disease at bay!
1. Drinking healthy juices or Haldi milk
We begin the desi hack of preventing any disease- drinking turmeric milk. Turmeric is said to have medicinal values and has got healing powers. Be it cough, cold or the deadly COVID-19, drinking turmeric milk is the ideal solution. Alternatively, you can also drink healthy fruit juices or concoctions made out of herbal plants, spices, and fruits. In Agga Bai Sasubai, even Abhijeet prepared a healthy concoction for Soham when the latter pretended to have a stomachache. Only this time, the disease is for real, unlike Soham’s pretense!

2. Expose yourself to the sun
Sunlight is a great source of Vitamin D which is a natural supplement available for the body. Exposure to sunlight helps prevent diseases. Even though corona has forced you to stay at home, you can always stand near windows or balconies and try to soak up as much of the sun as you can.
Regular exercise goes a long way in improving your immunity and keeping any disease at bay. Opt for indoor exercises like skipping, spot jogging, free squats, and suryanamaskars which will help you increase the blood flow in your body. Remember how Soham was made to run a race by Abhijeet? Consider this as your race against Corona and make sure you win this one!
4. Get an ample amount of sleep
They say that the best ways to stay healthy are often free. We often tend to underestimate sleeping, an important factor required by our body. Sleeping is essential to keep our body’s ability to defend itself intact. While you’re asleep, your body uses the time to carry out critical recovery and repair. Do we need to say more?
5. Try to be stress-free
Stress can make or break a person. It also makes a huge difference to your immune system, especially in events like these when everything in the world seems to be falling apart. Managing the constant flow of information about coronavirus itself is also another way to be stress-free. Instead, try to unwind by doing activities like Yoga, meditation, reading your favourite book, cooking for yourself, etc. Absolutely anything that keeps you away from the misinformation being spread on social media! You can also spend some time with your loved ones just like Radhika from Mazhya Navryachi Bayko.
