Here are some tips to cope up with lifestyle diseases and work from home during the pandemic

Stick to a well-balanced diet inclusive of all the vital vitamins and nutrients. Make sure you eat fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, whole grains, legumes, and pulses on a daily basis. Avoid spicy, oily, junk, canned, and processed foods. Stay hydrated and practice portion control. Maintain your body weight. Avoid smoking, drinking and foods with artificial sweeteners and flavors.

You can stand, walk or even stretch. Also, try to cut down on your usage of electronic gadgets. Avoid lifting any heavy objects and in case, you have to lift any heavy objects then squat and lift them, or else you will suffer from back pain.

Start exercising on an immediate basis. Exercise 3-4 hours per week. Exercising is a boon for those who want to maintain blood sugar levels, hypertension, tackle obesity, stress, and joint pain.

For stress, practice yoga and meditation as and when you get time. Avoid watching distressing news. Invest time doing your favorite things. This will give you happiness.
