Weight Loss is not an easy task. Yes, we all agree. But why it is so, It is actually not your body which is at fault. It is you your determination and dieting discipline you can observe weight loss in 4 weeks. Whatever the tips I am going to tell you to lose weight can only work if you implement them in your routine with determination and discipline. So I ask, don’t just read all these tips but apply them on your self.
1. INCLUDE PROTEIN IN YOUR DIET
If you want to lose weight, then you must need to cut your calorie intake. But How? it can be done easily by consuming protein daily. When you eat protein it reduces your hunger and you end up eating less. But it depends on your body weight that how much protein you need to lose weight. as per Nutritional Guidelines, you need 1.6 and 2.2 grams of protein per kilogram body weight.
SOME OF THE BEST SOURCE OF PROTEIN
2. INCREASE BODY METABOLISM
A good body metabolism helps your body to burn calories even you are not doing any physical work. If the rate of metabolism in your body is correct, then your weight will not increase. Here are the tips to increase your body metabolic rate.
Include protein you each your meal
Try to drink cold water
Do a High-Intensity Workout
try to do work on standing
Drink Green Tea, or black tea twice a day
Eat Spicy Foods
Get a Good sound Night’s Sleep
3. REDUCE SUGAR AND STARCH
To lose weight, it is most important to reduce the taste of sugar and starch. When you do this, your hunger level decreases and you eat very few calories. Now instead of making carbs for energy, your body starts eating stored fat. Another benefit of cutting sugar is that it lowers insulin levels, which causes your kidneys to shed excess sodium and water from your body. This reduces the weight of bloat and unnecessary water.
4. LIFT WEIGHT 3 TIMES A WEEK
Going to the gym 3 to 4 times a week is the best option. Warm-up and lift some weight. By lifting weight, you will spend a lot of calories. Weights help you increase muscle mass while reducing the amount of body fat. If you do not want to lift weights then do cardio workout such as walking, running, cycling or swimming.
5. EAT FRUIT BEFORE DINNER
If you are also dreaming of weight loss while sitting at home, then the best way to detoxify the body is by consuming fruits. Whenever you go for a heavy meal, eat fruits 30 minutes before that. Also, if you want, you can eat fruits on an empty stomach. They are high in fibre and low in calories. Hence a very good option to satisfy your hunger while taking no more calories.
BEST FRUITS TO LOSE WEIGHT
6. EAT 5 TO 6 TIMES INSTEAD OF EATING BIG MEALS THREE TIMES A DAY
It was found that if people eat a less amount of food 5 to 6 times a day instead of eating large meals in morning, afternoon and evening consumes 30% less calories. And if he is consuming the same amount of calories as he consumes three times, then by following this schedule, the body releases less insulin, which keeps your blood sugar accurate and you also feel less hungry.
7. DRINK 2 GLASSES OF WATER 15 MINUTES BEFORE EVERY MEAL
Water is the most precious thing we have still we do not make use of it properly. Drinking water 15 minutes before every meal makes our body ready for a free flow. More importantly it reduces dehydration and detoxifies our body and make it ready for the meal.
7. DON’T IGNORE BREAKFAST
Breakfast is the most important part of our every day’s meal. Healthy Breakfast helps us to start our day so that we have the energy to work all day. Even if you are late for the office, but do not ignore Breakfast. Make it a habit to have breakfast within 1 hour of waking up. By doing this your metabolism will remain update and you will also lose weight.
8. DRINK PLENTY OF WATER
We should drink atlesdy 8 glasses of water everyday. We have all heard about this, but there are very few people who follow this thing. Also, those who follow also do not know what the right time to drink water is. Drinking water in between meals slows down digestion, which reduces the absorption of nutrients in the body. To increase the metabolism of the body, drink water 15 minutes before every meal and 30 minutes after every meal.
Being An Image And Fashion Consultant I even provide professional assessments and tune ups for clients LinkedIn profiles. I enjoy helping clients to make improvements to their LinkedIn profiles which in most cases is far easier and less painless than what most people think it will be. A few of my observations after viewing hundreds of LinkedIn profiles:
Many LinkedIn users created their profile years ago when they were in a rush to join LinkedIn and have never gone back to update and improve their profile. Your LinkedIn profile should be current and relevant.
There are too many examples of business professionals who don’t realize the importance of their profile photo. Suffice to say there are some really bad profile photos on LinkedIn and profiles without a photo nearly raises some suspicion. Many people don’t realize the importance of making their headline sound interesting or captivating.
Following are some Important tips I mostly suggest and use in creating a perfect and profitable profile.
Your LinkedIn Profile Photo
Your LinkedIn profile photo is one of the most important elements of your LinkedIn profile and should be considered to be your calling card. Research shows that just having a photo makes your profile 14 times more likely to be viewed by others. Your profile picture is your first chance to communicate that you are friendly, likeable, and trustworthy.
Consider Using a Professional Photographer
I recommend that you use a professional photographer to take your headshot. A professional will make sure the lighting is flattering and that you are putting your best face forward. If you can’t afford to have professional photos done, you can still post a good quality photo. Remember to use a photo that looks like you.
Make sure your face takes up at least 60% of the frame.
Don’t be the person wearing sunglasses, hair all wind blown driving your speed boat. Outdoor photos are great but save them for your Facebook. Crop your photo from the top of your shoulders to just above your head so that your face fills the frame.
Add a background photo
Your background photo is the second visual element at the top of your profile page. It should complement your profession and get people’s attention. More than anything, the right background photo helps your page stand out, engage attention and stay memorable. If you have a super looking company logo, that can work wonders.
Make your headline more than just a job title
Your headline is the MOST important part of your LinkedIn Profile. There is no rule that says the description at the top of your profile page has to be just a job title. LinkedIn gives you 120 words to describe how you see your role and what makes you special.
Turn your summary into your story
I am always amazed at how many people still leave this field blank when creating their LinkedIn profile. Your summary is your chance to tell your story. No one really cares about how many job titles you have held. Your summary should:
speak directly to your target market
be written in first person
include your chosen keywords
be up to 2000 characters in length
include rich media such as pdfs, videos or SlideShare presentations
Take time to make sure your potential connections know they’re in the right place and that you are the person who can help them with their specific problems.
List your relevant skills
Listing your skills is a quick win on LinkedIn – scroll through the list of skills and identify all of those that are relevant to you. Be careful to select the skills that really apply to you and your profession and not just click on a skill because it sounds good.
Grow your network
One of the easiest ways to grow your LinkedIn network is to sync your profile with your email address book. This enables LinkedIn to suggest people you could connect with. Beyond this, get into the habit of following up on networking, business meetings and conversations with LinkedIn connection requests. Doing so is a great way of keeping your network vibrant and up to date.
Take Time to Give Endorsements
Endorsements from other LinkedIn connections substantiate your skills and increases your credibility. Go through your network and identify connections who you feel genuinely deserve an endorsement from you – you will be surprised how many people return the favour.
Write an Update or an Article in the Publications Section
The Publications section is one of the most under-used elements in LinkedIn profiles. Writing an update or an article can showcase your authority and knowledge in your areas of expertise and help you stand out from the crowd.
List your memberships and follow relevant influencers for your industry
Following influencers on LinkedIn helps to put a range of interesting content in your feed, which you can then share with others when you think it adds value. It also helps to give context to your LinkedIn profile, demonstrating your passion for what you do.
All to say, if you have a LinkedIn Profile, you want to make sure that it is current, typo free, professional looking and working to your advantage. If you are interested in getting an assessment done, you can book a session @ Anikamadan@gmail.com
MY GET-THE-GLOW PHILOSOPHY IS ALL ABOUT ENJOYING WHAT MAKES YOU FEEL HAPPY & HEALTHY.
I think of health about being more than what you eat and how much you exercise –
I call my three pillars move, munch and meditate. In my life, meditation doesn’t have to involve ommm-ing, it could be mindful colouring or maybe a walk. The important thing is to make time to relax to balance out all the go-go-go in our lives.
Getting the glow changes how we look and feel and even how we think. I want to show you how eating well, moving more and calming down can make you feel happy to be you.
I wasn’t always this healthy. In fact, as a teenager I ate really badly and was really overweight. My skin was dull, my hair was lank and I constantly complained of being tired. Unsurprisingly, living off diet cola and low-calorie ready meals meant I developed terrible digestive problems: bloating, cramps and all sorts.
Gradually, I realised I had to change my destructive ways. I learnt the art of healthy eating and started eating whole foods and found I was gradually falling in love with food, life, and most important of all, myself.
My taste buds bloomed, that 4pm energy slump was eliminated, my skin began to glow, calorie counting went out the window and I beamed from ear to ear. All that came from giving my body what it needs! It’s such a good feeling.
I studied nutrition, coaching people who wanted to eat well, and started creating my own glow-getting recipes.
I want to show you how easy it is to eat good food, to stretch out and make time to relax. This isn’t a diet; getting the glow is a way of life. I love to see pictures of your recipe recreations and find out how you’re learning to glow from the inside out, so please do pop over to Instagram and say hi. @anikamkhara and @aashion.anika.
Don’t Just Make a Positive Impression, Make a Memorable Impression
By Anika Khara
Making a positive impression is crucial, whether you’re an aspiring entrepreneur or going out on a first date. As an Image Consultant, I get asked a lot about how to improve self-confidence and project the right image, which are both key to making a good impression. However, as we all know, it’s those first impressions that mean everything.
DID YOU KNOW YOU HAVE ONLY 7 SECONDS TO MAKE A FIRST IMPRESSION?
It’s true. For this reason, many individuals come to me looking for advice on the best way to conduct themselves the first time they meet someone in a business environment.
While most of us have some ideas around how to make a good impression in a professional setting, we occasionally overlook certain details or ingrained habits. We might slouch, fidget with our phones, or let the conversation dry up to become an awkward silence.
How to Make a Positive Impression
The following points are what I consider the foundation to making a positive first impression.
Have a good posture. Stand tall, shoulders back, chest out, arms relaxed, feet firmly planted.
Dress appropriate to the occasion. Business casual or business formal with simple, but tasteful accessories.
Put your phone away. Paying more attention to your phone than the person sitting across from you suggests that they are not as important.
Smile and extend your hand when you first introduce yourself.
Ask questions of the person you are meeting for the first time. People love to talk about themselves, which makes this a great strategy for keeping the conversation going.
Offer your business card when appropriate, and tell this new contact what a pleasure it was to meet them. This shows that you valued your time with them and would like to connect again.
How to Make a Memorable Impression
Now, while making a positive impression is important, it is even better if you can make a memorable and lasting impression. Some simple suggestions on how to master this area to make an impact are:
In the world of first impressions, fashionably late doesn’t fly. Show that you respect others’ time. For every meeting or event you are invited to attend, you should always arrive 5-10 minutes early. If you are uncertain of the location, look it up in advance. Don’t leave it until you are flying out the door.
DO YOUR HOMEWORK
If it is your goal to meet certain individuals at an event or meeting you are attending, do your homework beforehand. We live in a digital world that allows us more insight into others’ lives than ever before. LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, and Google are valuable tools available at your fingertips. Do a little digging to find whatever information you think will help you feel more comfortable and confident in establishing a rapport with your new contact. What are their hobbies? Do they like to travel? Are they passionate about a cause? Find common ground that will allow you to strike up a conversion in a natural way.
Sometimes we can get so nervous about meeting someone new, we hide the parts of our personality that really make us shine. The next time you go to an important meeting or event, don’t forget to take your sense of humour with you. We live in a crazy hectic world, so sharing a laugh is always appreciated and it can help to reduce the stress of meeting new people.
If a person that you have just met has wowed you in some way – and hopefully you have wowed them in return — send them a short thank you note to say how much you enjoyed meeting them. If you plan to do future business with them, send them an LinkedIn invite to join your network. You can also call or send a text. This is important for doing business and maintaining relationships these days. It’s the little things that touch all of us, so don’t be afraid to let someone know how they have touched you.
I hope you find these tips useful the next time you find yourself mingling at an important event or meeting someone new, and want to make a memorable impression. If you’re looking for more personal insight on ways you can improve your image in order to grow your network and build your business, please remember I am here anytime you need me.
While it is a good thing to be a kind, loving and generous person, we have to know when to draw the line between real niceties and clinging on to that behaviour to receive others’ love and validation. A lot of the time when we go overboard trying to please others, the behaviour is not genuine. Some people find themselves performing this kind of behaviour and holding such an attitude to remain a neutral party in their relationships. It’s a way to avoid conflict and controversy, because you will always concede to your partner, regardless of the situation. Rather than solving any problem, people-pleasing puts a false layer of harmony and order.
What Is People Pleasing In A Relationship?
People pleasing essentially as putting your partner’s needs ahead of your own. This can often mean you prioritise them and their feelings. You spend most of your time in the relationship looking after them, and neglecting yourself.
How Genuine Is A Relationship Based On People-Pleasing?
Being a people pleaser is not indicative of a relationship’s genuineness and authenticity. In such a relationship, there may still be genuine love and care present; it just means that one partner’s needs are not as highlighted.
How Can You Recognise This Behaviour?
As a person who is a people pleaser, recognising this behavior is about being reflective of what is playing out for them, and asking themselves if their needs are being met or not. If you suspect that your partner might be holding back, and not opening up much, you might want to check in and see how they’re feeling in the relationship.
What Are The Potential Harms To Your Relationship If You Do This?
Generally when there is a people pleaser in a relationship, there is bound to be some level of resentment or anger. This is because one partner’s needs are not being met and they are unable to be completely authentic with their partner. This can be very damaging to a relationship.
How Do You Overcome This?
Being able to overcome this comes with a lot of reflection. It’s important to stay mindful of your own needs, and identify what it is that might be holding you back from communicating these needs to your partner. It’s advised to explore themes like self-compassion, where you learn concepts and practices around acceptance and compassion towards the self. Also, it might help to delve into this people pleasing pattern with a therapist, and unpacking the history behind it in a safe, non-judgemental space.
Pleasing your own self first or in other words keeping yourself at the top priority is very important inorder to develop a positive and happy approach to anything in life or in any relationships you have..
Over the last few years, beauty tools have been all the hype for skincare enthusiasts – and rightfully so. Before, these devices used to belong at the facialist or at your dermatologist’s office, but now their at-home accessibility has gained more and more traction. With the latest advances in technology our complexions can achieve a salon-like glow in the comfort of our homes. But before investing in them, let’s get to know them better.
Jade and Steel Rollers
Jade rollers were probably the first tools to really start the hype of at-home skincare tools. Just apply your favourite serum or facial moisturiser and gently massage the tool over your face allowing for deeper penetration of the product and an equally calming massage. If you’re feeling fancy, leave the roller in the fridge and enjoy an even more relaxing cooling treatment!
If you’re looking for a remedy to puffiness, but also a chiseled face and toned complexion, the gua sha is your tool. It is actually a traditional Chinese healing method used to stroke the skin and provide benefits that include lymphatic drainage, improved fine lines and wrinkles, and improved blood circulation. It is best to consult a professional before using one at home, to ensure you are using it correctly and reap maximum benefits!
NU Facial Toning Device
This mini facial toning device may come at a higher price point, but it’s worth it. It uses micro-current technology to stimulate the facial muscles, working to tighten and tone, while simultaneously fighting signs of ageing like fine lines and wrinkles. Sessions can range from as little as five minutes to twenty, in order to see results almost immediately. It is best to apply a facial oil or gel beforehand, so the process is smooth!
Tinkle Razor (Derma-planing)
If you open Instagram or TikTok these days, you’re highly likely to come across an at home derma-planing tutorial. These easy to use tools are the magic answer behind baby soft skin. This fine blade is used to remove any hair or peach fuzz on the face, along with dead skin. The gentle exfoliation leads to smoother, brighter skin. But be careful before using it, be gentle and start with small portions…
Nurse Jamie Massaging Beauty Roller
This tool in particular is great for sculpting. Cheekbones, lifted jawlines, perfected eyebrows – you name it, this tool brings results. After applying your creams, the beauty roller can be used to massage the ingredients deeper into the skin, to achieve maximum benefits
Dermarollers don’t sound like the most pleasant facial tool – a roller with miniature needles on it?! But it’s actually a great tool to combat issues like fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, acne scars, and helps achieve a glowing complexion. Unlike micro-needling procedures performed by a dermatologist, at-home derma rollers are significantly less scary and use much smaller needles, so you don’t need to worry! The rolling effect of the micro-needles over your skin stimulates collagen production and reduces puffiness, among other benefits. Just make sure your skin and the tool is properly cleansed before starting – as you should before using any other tool.
These at-home tools are a great way to take care of your skin, especially while we continue to quarantine/ social distance at home, and spend more time on self care. But before you go out and buy all these products it is important to consult a dermatologist and properly do your research beforehand, so that you know you’re using the right tool for your skin.
We’ve recently addressed the importance of self-care to boost your career but self-care extends to anyone, career or not. A balanced mind, body and spirit will make you more productive, help you focus and can impact your ability to be innovative. Self-care shouldn’t solely be a part of your emergency kit when you’re feeling burnt out but an established portion of your weekly or even daily routine.
Before you buy into the myth that it’s only self-care when you’re relaxing in a hot bubble bath with a glass of wine after a hard day of work, let’s clear things up. Self-care …
doesn’t equate to a full day of wellness. It’s tending to your body and mind to nourish yourself in whichever way you need it. Even a small act of self-care can help your overall well-being.
is not dependent on your performance or achievements. You always deserve to take care of yourself.
is not selfish. The better you feel in your own skin, the more present you’ll be around others, ultimately affecting everyone around you in a positive way.
There are five types of self-care: emotional, social, physical, mental and spiritual self-care. Ask yourself what you need to feel more like yourself again and find out which type you’ll benefit from today. Do you feel disconnected and lonely? Call up a friend, hug your significant other or talk to a relative to nurture your social relationships. Do you feel tired, unfit or sluggish? Take a nap, go for a walk or cook a healthy meal to improve your physical well-being.
If your thoughts are racing and your mind feels restless, tend to your mental health by reading a good book, watching a movie or show or playing a game with loved ones. To improve your emotional health, try shifting your mindset by talking to a therapist or writing in your journal. The words we use when journaling or talking to ourselves have immense power over our personal and professional lives.
Rather than looking at all the things you didn’t cross off your to-do list, be proud of yourself for making it through yet another tough week. Try using positive affirmations to practice self-compassion. You can download a few positive quotes and pin the cards to your kitchen fridge, bathroom mirror or office bulletin board as daily reminders to be kind to yourself and keep going.
It may seem much easier to continue going through the motions and waiting for the next vacation to get some rest but if you regularly practice self-care and self-compassion, you’ll realize that life is much more enjoyable when you’re kind to yourself.
We all experience setbacks or obstacles in our personal and business lives, however it’s what we learn from our setbacks and failures that really propels us forward.
While some leaders have the stamina and resilience to just pick up the pieces and move on after a failure, others find it very difficult to let go. Either way, the key to moving forward after a set back is to learn from what the adversity taught you about yourself and consciously apply that lesson to future situations.
Here are 9 strategies that I have found helpful in overcoming set backs and failures on the path to success.
1. Take Responsibility for your failures. No one wants to fail but thinking that you will never fail is unrealistic. Taking responsibility for your part in a failure is an opportunity to learn and do better or different next time.
2. Take time to process a setback. After experiencing a setback, recognize that you will need some time to process what just happened to you. There is no set amount of time to recover from a failure so don’t feel you have to rush the process.
3.Give yourself a break and change it up. Obsessing over your setback is only going to keep you stuck. Try to do something fun, go outdoors, take a break from social media and just give your mind a rest. It’s hard to rebound if you continue to stay focused on your setback.
4. Reflect with trusted colleagues and mentors. When you’ve experienced a failure, ask a trusted colleague or mentor for their honest feedback. Good mentors will give you candid feedback, let you vent and provide the support and encouragement to help you take positive steps forward.
5. Create contingency plans. When making future decisions, think about the possible hurdles that will occur and plan for them. Being pro-active and having a contingency plan at the ready for when problems occur will help you immensely.
6. Determine what’s in your control. Think about what you have under your own control. If you failed due to a lack of knowledge or skills, take a course or do some more reading to gain additional skills to position yourself for success in the future.
7. Try New approaches. Be flexible and open-minded to trying new approaches. Some leaders become inflexible and overly cautious after a failure. Taking risks is necessary for leaders who want to succeed. Don’t insulate yourself or be fearful of making decisions, you will make more right ones than wrong ones.
8. Be determined and optimistic. Be sure to keep a positive outlook no matter how hard this may be. This is especially important if you are a leader. If your business stalls and your employees are fearful about losing their jobs, they will look to you for guidance and assurance that things will get better.
9. Reframe and Reflect to stay on track. I’ve coached numerous business leaders who keep notes and look back on them regularly as a way of keeping themselves on track so as not to repeat the same mistakes going forward.
While setbacks and obstacles can derail us, they also are opportunities to look at a problem from a new perspective. Failures force us to learn and build confidence in our abilities and judgment. Many professional and personal break-throughs have been achieved after a failure has occurred. Persevering through setbacks will help you – and your organization – to continue to grow and prosper.

WHY EVERY WOMAN NEEDS A TRIBE AND HOW TO FIND YOURS
I really believe that surrounding ourselves with the right people can contribute to a happy and wholesome life. Friends and family need to be there for us in the same way that we need to be there for them – to support one another through the good times and the bad times. I’m also a massive believer in supporting one another woman to woman – we should build each other up not tear each other down – which is easy to forget in a world where we constantly compare ourselves to eachother on social media. Here are 5 reasons every woman needs a tribe and how to find yours!
1. Sisterhood is a powerful force
In the old ages women did not enjoy the kind of freedom and independence we, as modern women, do today. Their survival depended on a strong bond with the women around them. They shared caring for babies, gathering and cooking food, they helped one another through child-birth, mourned together through death and cared for one another. They were a constant source of strength, support and comfort to one another on a daily basis.
However, just because we no longer need that strong sisterhood to survive in life, we do need it, it turns out, to thrive in life.
Study after study is starting to reveal that when women create strong bonds with other women it has a huge impact on their health and happiness and by own personal experience i have found that when women come together to share and support one another, it has a profound and often life-changing effect on them.
2. Close friends Boost your Immunity
It turns out that having strong female friendships is key to our health. A recent study revealed that for women in particular, it’s not just what we put into our bodies that is key to our health and happiness, but who we put around us. It was found that women who have close female friendships are staying happier and healthier as they age, and study after study has found that strong and nourishing friendships reduce our risk of disease by lowering blood pressure, heart rate, and cholesterol. Our female friendships literally have the power to help heal us.
3. Women go further when they have a tribe of women behind them.
Imagine for a moment what it would be like to have a tribe of women behind you, fully supporting and believing in you. What would that kind of support give you the courage to do? What would life feel like to be surrounded by women who loved you and had your back? Well that is what ‘Women Business Cult’ is all about. Women coming together to support one another and empower one another to create a life they love and enjoy the life they are living.
4. Women Together Time creates the space for us to stop. Let go. And breathe.
In today’s fast-paced world where women on average get 36 minutes of down-time a day (or 17 minutes if you’re a mother), sister circles offer women a chance to stop for a moment as life whizzes by. To take a step back and breeeeeathe. It’s a chance to check in with yourself and ask ‘How am I doing…really?’ and have other women bare witness to your answer. It’s a chance for you to do what women generally aren’t very good at doing: listening in to your needs and your dreams and making sure that you are doing what you can to have those needs met and bring those dreams to life.
5. As women our souls crave the connection and belonging that comes from sisterhood
When we connect deeply with other women, we connect deeply with ourselves. Opening ourselves up and sharing the things that are close to our hearts creates a space of shared vulnerability that leads to deep connection – the thing that we all, as human beings, crave more than anything.
And having the experience of being heard and supported by other women is a deep rooted need that all women have. It unlocks our power and potential as individuals and collectively. When you experience the undivided love, support and attention of a group of women who are fully present to you in that moment, you are reminded not only of who you truly are but of what we are capable of as women when we stand together and support one another.
As the co founder of Women Business Cult i would love to quote this “The world will be set free by women who are free. Sisterhood is the key”.

* Get a COVID-19 vaccine when it is available to you.
* Avoid crowds and poorly ventilated indoor spaces.
* Wash your hands often with soap and water. Use hand sanitizer if soap and water aren’t available.
Wear a mask
Everyone 2 years and older should wear masks in public.
Masks should be worn in addition to staying at least 6 feet apart, especially around people who don’t live with you.
If someone in your household is infected, people in the household should take precautions including wearing masks to avoid spread to others.
Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer before putting on your mask.
Wear your mask over your nose and mouth and secure it under your chin.
Fit the mask snugly against the sides of your face, slipping the loops over your ears or tying the strings behind your head.
If you have to continually adjust your mask, it doesn’t fit properly, and you might need to find a different mask type or brand.
Make sure you can breathe easily.
Masks are required on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation traveling into, within, or out of the country in Transportation hubs such as airports and stations.
Stay 6 feet away from others
Inside your home: Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
If possible, maintain 6 feet between the person who is sick and other household members.
Outside your home: Put 6 feet of distance between yourself and people who don’t live in your household.
Remember that some people without symptoms may be able to spread virus.
Stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arm lengths) from other people.
Keeping distance from others is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick.
Authorized COVID-19 vaccines can help protect you from COVID-19.
You should get a COVID-19 vaccine when it is available to you.
Once you are fully vaccinated, you may be able to start doing some things that you had stopped doing because of the pandemic.
Avoid crowds and poorly ventilated spaces
Being in crowds like in restaurants, bars, fitness centers, or movie theaters puts you at higher risk for COVID-19.
Avoid indoor spaces that do not offer fresh air from the outdoors as much as possible.
If indoors, bring in fresh air by opening windows and doors, if possible.
Wash your hands often
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
It’s especially important to wash:
Before eating or preparing food
Before touching your face
After using the restroom
After leaving a public place
After blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing
After handling your mask
After changing a diaper
After caring for someone sick
After touching animals or pets
If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Cover coughs and sneezes
If you are wearing a mask: You can cough or sneeze into your mask. Put on a new, clean mask as soon as possible and wash your hands.
If you are not wearing a mask:
Always cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, or use the inside of your elbow and do not spit.
Throw used tissues in the trash.
Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
Clean and disinfect
Clean high touch surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.
If someone is sick or has tested positive for COVID-19, disinfect frequently touched surfaces. Use a household disinfectant product. Disinfectants for Coronavirus (COVID-19)external icon according to manufacturer’s labeled directions.
If surfaces are dirty, clean them using detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.
Monitor your health daily
Be alert for symptoms. Watch for fever, cough, shortness of breath, or other symptoms of COVID-19.
Especially important if you are running essential errands, going into the office or workplace, and in settings where it may be difficult to keep a physical distance of 6 feet.
Take your temperature if symptoms develop.
Don’t take your temperature within 30 minutes of exercising or after taking medications that could lower your temperature.
As your immune system fights against the virus, your lungs and airway become inflamed and swell, and this can make breathing difficult, even in a relatively mild case. People who develop more serious cases of pneumonia can experience their lungs filling with fluid and mucus, and this makes it hard to breathe deeply enough to get the amount of oxygen your body needs. Even as you recover from Covid-19, the respiratory effects of the disease can linger for weeks or months as the lungs heal.
While specific breathing techniques can’t prevent the coronavirus, they can provide some relief and aid in the recovery process.
The following is a series of four specific techniques that anyone who is experiencing the effects of the coronavirus or any other respiratory distress can safely use. These techniques will provide you with tools to improve your breathing muscles and efficiency and hopefully allow you to breathe more comfortably.. I have added the links to the tutorials of these exercises, pls do watch for a better understanding.
1. Belly breathing (lying face down) 2. Side-lying back mobilization 3. Loosening fluid in the lungs 4. Assisted coughing
1. Belly Breathing (Lying Face Down)
Lying on the belly when recovering from an illness that affects the lungs helps with drainage and moves fluid to a position where it can be expelled easier with coughing. Belly breathing can help cue deep breaths into the lower lobes of the lungs and work on the efficiency and strength of the diaphragm and other respiratory muscles. Adding timed cyclic breathing can help challenge these muscles further as well as promoting a calm state in the nervous system. Perform 2 minutes of quiet belly breathing followed by 3 – 5 cycles of the following: 8 seconds inhale through the nose, 5-second hold, 10 seconds slow exhale through the mouth….

2. Side-Lying Back Mobilization
This exercise can help improve the way the chest moves and decrease the restrictive feeling that often follows periods of illness, immobility, or prolonged time in one position. This position is gentle and easy for most people to incorporate. Perform 3-5 repetitions on each side with 3️ breaths per repetition…. Link : https://youtu.be/cRxn1pK7NHQ
After working on postural drainage and breathing, another way to help get the junk moving up and out of the lungs is to perform gentle percussion. Make sure to face away from the person performing the percussion, don’t use too much force, and repeat the sequence 3 – 4 times on each side…. Link: https://youtu.be/y4TDNaIWoBI
4. Assisted Coughing
After finishing percussion discussed in the previous video, coughing is a great way to tie all of the previous techniques together. Since the diaphragm and other breathing muscles are a little weaker, you can benefit from this self-assistance technique. Try timing the assistance with the exhale and don’t push too hard. This is supposed to be gentle help – not the Heimlich. You can modify this position by holding a pillow up against your belly if it’s more comfortable. Spit out any junk you cough up into a tissue and throw it away. As always – make sure you wash your hands! Link: https://youtu.be/pqE_2zI9xGA
If you or someone you know has been affected by the coronavirus and is experiencing symptoms of reduced lung capacity and difficulty breathing, along with seeking medical care and advice from your physician, we encourage you to gently practice these techniques at home. These techniques aren’t meant to take the place of medical care, and they won’t necessarily keep the virus from progressing, but if breathing is difficult, we hope that these exercises will help you feel more comfortable and assist in your recovery.
