Amidst the outbreak of coronavirus, the women around the country are gearing up for the fast and worship of the goddess as Navaratri is around the corner. In most parts of the country it is a grand festival and the scare of coronavirus is also at its peak. During this dark time, keeping good immunity should be everyone’s priority. The first step to fight coronavirus is to maintain a good immune system.
As people in the country look forward to keeping fast during the nine Navratri days, here are a few ways which when followed can help maintain good immune health and make you stay protected.
Drink more water
If you suddenly feel dizzy then you may have become dehydrated. This mostly happens when you haven’t eaten anything for a long time and are also not drinking enough water. In such a situation, take lukewarm milk, buttermilk, curd or fruit every three to four hours so that you don’t starve for a long time and still observe your fast.
Consume more liquid
Instead of taking a solid diet or taking bananas, papaya, etc. during the fast, drink milk, buttermilk, lassi every three to four hours. This will not cause problems of dehydration in the body and will not cause dizziness as well as you will not feel hungry. If you like to drink juice, then drink fresh fruit juice instead of packed juice.
Avoid Potato dishes
For many, fast is synonymous with consuming potatoes in every dish. Instead of eating potatoes, eat more spinach, radish, tomatoes, pumpkin, gourd and other seasonal vegetables that are allowed in the fast. If you want to eat potato then roast it instead of frying or boiling and eat it with curd.
Eat-in short intervals
Never let your body go without food for a longer period of time. During Navratri fast, you should take care of your body by eating something in short intervals. For this, you first need to understand your body. Analyze how long you have been hungry and still feel fine. Note how your digestive system works, what is the acid level, etc. You can do a comparative study of your body while fasting and serve its needs accordingly.
