Given the situation we are currently experiencing due to the Covid-19, one of the most effective precautionary measures to avoid getting infected is staying at home. Many of us as time passes during the quarantine we feel trapped and imprisoned in our walls, which despair and anxiety are made to notice bringing with it many problems for us.
It is proven that during isolation mental health is a fundamental factor to avoid falling into anxiety and despair, as we are not mentally and emotionally well the defenses of our body can lower which will lead to getting sick faster. That is why in this time of quarantine or isolation it would be good to take advantage of the time and do things that help you clear your mind and forget your worries.
Remember it is very important to respect these measures because even if you are young and in good health, or if you have no symptoms, you can pass it on to someone who could be frail and potentially die. In short, it is essential to stay home for an indefinite period. But instead of getting stressed out by the running of the bulls, you have to see it positively! It’s time to take advantage of the opportunity to do many different activities every day! And here are some ideas to keep you busy during this quarantine.
Before relaxing and doing our activities with peace of mind, it is good that we begin with performing an in-depth cleaning of our house, disinfecting each area of the house to eliminate viruses and bacteria that may have entered before the quarantine. Use recommended products to eliminate bacteria, such as chlorine, disinfectant, detergents, and more. Once you have cleaned and disinfected your house you can place some aroma diffuser with an essential oil that helps purify the air in your home, I recommend using the palo santo essential oil as it has active bacterial properties and provides great benefits for our health. Palo Santo has limonene, an antibacterial, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory agent that prevents/counteracts respiratory diseases, and even helps you counteract stress and tiredness.
In the case of not having an aroma diffuser you can use incense or palo santo wood, with burning a little of this sacred wood it will help you purify the air in your home, make sure that by burning this sacred wood your house is ventilated and the open windows so that the smoke does not harm you.
