“Exercise more than ever is now most important in keeping healthy physically and mentally. There are simple indoor exercises we can practice at home.
“Another health habit for this period is diet control. Eat as little food as possible because food eaten but not burned becomes poisonous to the body, leading to the feeling of anxiety, depression, and even aggression.
“For people with pre-existing medical conditions, it could lead to an escalation of the illness.
