What about God’s secret formula for healthy life? Has anyone ever asked God about his point of view on this subject? In my opinion, we should be more conscious of what is happening “in us” more than what is happening “to us”. And I guarantee, you will find God saying my people are destroyed because of lack of knowledge.
This title sounds more like some sort of advice that everyone knows what it means. Some might argue with the saying ‘A stitch in time saves nine’. It makes good sense we are ready to argue on this topic once again in this situation. Whole world is helpless and medical fraternity is in full throttle to save all possible lives. And we are back to the square.
We are again thinking of our basics. Safe food to boost immunity, clean home to keep the infection away. Taking bath and cleaning clothes when return from outside. Meditation to keep the mental health proper, walking in any possible area to keep the physical wellbeing. Ever since the lockdown is imposed and people are conservative to travel extensively and factories are not really functioning except essential products, the quality of air, quality of water has changed. And when you follow some of the very famous vloggers on YouTube you will find the difference.
Sociologists can easily direct us to the massive health benefits at this point of time. But I strongly believe this human species will forget every possible issue that we are facing now when the Pandemic will reach end of the parabola. We won’t even realize that the freedom of movement has been restricted. Even it is widely used “Social Distancing” I personally have problem using this word. I would rather use “Physical Distancing” which simplifies the concept of keeping 6 feet distance from one another in public places.
The point here I’m making is that one pandemic in last 100 years has shown how helpless we are in front of nature. (Overruling the China virus conspiracy theory for time being). I find it interesting to know the anchor among the fickle changing ideas of living a Safe and Healthy life, which is the unchanging WORD OF GOD in us. In this article, ‘Prevention is better than cure’ it is not my intention to discredit any of the man-made concoction, I do believe some of them are very well increasing the standard and longevity of life and some may even be ordained of god. Are you thinking where does the god come in to the picture? What about God’s secret formula for healthy life? Has anyone ever asked the God about his point of view on this subject? In my opinion, we should be more conscious of what is happening “in us” more than what is happening “to us”. And I guarantee, you will find God saying my people are destroyed because of lack of knowledge.
Today one invisible virus has shown we are still learning and we are inadequate to make our life safe and secure. This is not so simple how it sounds in my writing. Before I come back to this and explain it well we must check the changes in our lives. If we look closely the changes in our lives for past 5 months, we will be surprised. And every change we have done to our lives it leads towards prevention.
Let’s have some example…
|Changes in Habit||Changes in Diets||Changes in Consumption Patterns|
|Restricted movement||Restricted food from outside||Became conscious consumer|
|Wearing mask & hand gloves||Consuming more of fluids||Buy only absolutely required item first|
|Using sanitizer & washing hands frequently||Eating more of vegetables and protein||Buying more of health related gadgets|
|Changing clothes when returned from outside||Shifting from oily and spicy food to non-spicy food||Ready to spend more as long as health is concerned|
|Tried to sleep early and long sleeping hours||Started eating citrus fruits||Trying to read every possible details before buying|
|Practicing more of physical activity to keep body fit||String food that are essential||Online purchase is the new norm|
The above chart can show the general changes that have happened new normal to us if not all majority of us. Now, see every change from Habit to Diet and Consumption to Purchase is to ensure we protect ourselves and family as the first priority of our life. It is evident that health warriors are risking their lives to save more lives, they are equally advising us to take all possible precautionary measures so that we don’t have to reach hospital for cure. Even we reach hospital there is no guarantee that you will be cured. As human being we must understand that medical science has definitely improved and increased our life span in every sense but we must preserve to use it when it is needed. Besides we must put our effort to ensure we are living a healthy life by all means.
Again I’ll go back to my previous topic. Why are we so badly impacted by the COVID-19 virus? Some will say it is a Pandemic every country has failed to contrive it even after putting their best efforts. Since December, 2019 researchers and scientists are trying their level best to find a vaccine. Condition of world economy is worse than ever. Small and medium scale industry is hit badly. Shops have down their shutters, job loss is in peak. Black marketers are taking controls over consumers’ needs.
It is true that no one is perfect and we do mistakes; though it is best to learn from our previous mistakes. That learning will lead us to prevent. If we take preventions, we become safe or we have to take the help of cure. Which one is easier? Obviously it is much easier for us to prevent the problem from happening than solving it when happened. Just for example, if we have planned for holidays, we should plan and work accordingly to the trip for getting smooth travel. If we eat easily digestible foods, our stomach will be healthy and calm. If we are not prepared for the exam, we will get harassed at the exam time. So, we should make ourselves ready for all the circumstances and prevent.
Now the question is: when everything will come back to normalcy? Human is always optimistic; it is their nature. Hope everything will come back to their previous state soon. That has to be. Whole world is connected now to combat this virus and we are sure we will win this pandemic fight. The doctors, nurses, health workers, local volunteers are doing their best. Hope the dawn will come soon. Why not?
