This past year was a topsy turvy roller coaster ride. Everyone was on a journey no one expected. Furthermore, as more and more days passed by, the tougher it got. We had to adjust to new norms. Norms that are now considered normal. Firstly, think about the time when you first went to the bar. Or just went to the concert and enjoyed the music. It feels good to remember those old days. Well, now that we are in this situation, let us look ahead. Positivity is our key to survival.
Having said that, we need to change some of our basic habits. So read on to explore how you can change your lifestyle to beat the coronavirus.
Six Feet Apart at all times:
The first basic rule is social distancing. Even though we are social animals, this is the need of the hour. If you are going to a mildly crowded area also, make sure you are at six feet distance from all directions. Moreover, malls and stores have stickers that will make your task easier. Make sure you follow the rules of the store. They usually have a set number of people allowed in the store. For example, M.A.C stores are usually small. So they allow anything from 2-15 people at once. Finally, this helps maintain good enough space between two individuals. Make this a part of your lifestyle
A common complaint people have is that they are not used to picking their masks even now. They usually forget to carry it with them, when they leave their houses. So an easy way to tackle this problem is to keep at least two extra masks in your car at all times. Keep some space in your bag as well. Some people also said it was useful for them to keep your keys and mask in the same place. Additionally, every time you are outside or in a vicinity full of people, make sure you wear your mask. Effectively cover your nose.
Wash Your Hands:
The viral bacteria remain on hands for long hours. Hence, every time you come back from outside, or
have been in a public space, wash your hands. Make sure you are using soap and washing your hand’s elbow down thoroughly. Researchers have said, if you wash your hands for 20 seconds, it effectively reduces the bacterium on your hand. Furthermore, have a sanitizer handy. Keep one in your bag and one in your car. This way if you cannot wash your hands, you can easily use the sanitizer. A sanitizer should be a vital part of your lifestyle.
Testing for symptoms:
Times are such that we tend to get paranoid. But, it is required with the situation we are in. If you have
any of the symptoms, make sure you schedule an appointment. If you are coughing, sneezing, have a fever, or even feel breathless, contact your doctor immediately. A lot of U.S regulated testing centers are providing free testing. All you have to do is, contact medical services and book yourself an appointment. If you do test positive, stay in a room in isolation. Make sure you are nowhere near children or the older section of society. Furthermore, inform the people you were with in the past 14 days. This will help spread awareness. And, they can take required precautions.
There is a lot of talk about the upcoming vaccines for the virus. In addition to that, medical professionals have already been administered these vaccines. Now, these are decision times. If you believe the vaccine can help you with the cure you should get administered. If not, you can follow the aforementioned hacks to help you beat this virus.
