Coronavirus and Health

With the spread of COVID-19, it is important to practice daily routines in order to stay safe and healthy. Colorado has reported a substantial amount of cases of the coronavirus and we have collectively taken multiple precautions to help prevent the widespread of this virus. The best way to ensure that you and your family don’t get infected is to follow the mandates set in place by our local and statewide governments, as well as to follow the health and safety precautions highlighted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This includes the general rules of maintaining social distancing, washing your hands regularly, and self-quarantining as much as possible. However, during this awkward time, some people may also find it difficult to maintain an overall healthy lifestyle while dealing with the difficulties of this shutdown.

Maintaining Mental and Physical Health

In addition to the many guidelines which have been placed locally, there are many ways to help maintain a healthier mental and physical state of being. First of all, it is important to try and prevent your stress levels from increasing. According to the American Psychological Association (APA), high levels of stress can weaken the immune system, causing a person to be more susceptible to infections. The APA highlights that this can be prevented by practicing conscious stress management techniques such as breathing exercises or meditation. During these times, it is also important to remember that if you are following the recommended safety precautions previously mentioned, the likelihood of you being infected goes down dramatically.

Regarding physical health, it may become harder to self-care or maintain a healthy everyday routine. However, the human body reacts favorably to consistency and keeping a simple daily routine will help you continue to feel healthier. A good starting point would be to keep a balanced sleep schedule. Daily exercise, which may include walking, stretches, or workout regiments, will also help to keep you feeling rejuvenated.

 

 

Many easy to start and use workout plans, which require no extra gym equipment, can be found online. Many gyms are even offering online classes while their facilities are shut down. Again, the best tip for maintaining physical health is consistency and although the cultural atmosphere is very different right now, even small choices can help maintain a balanced mental and physical health level.  

From all of us at Kidneigh & Kaufman, P.C., we hope all goes well, and that you and those close to you remain happy and healthy throughout these difficult times.
