Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, one-third of the world’s population is now under lockdown. Although the measure is crucial to minimize the spread of the novel coronavirus, it might have a severe impact on the people’s physical and mental health. Since the beginning of the outbreak, Wafuken Restaurant, a leading brand of Evergreen Group, has taken up many charitable initiatives along with other companies of Evergreen Group by providing healthy meals to the first responders to tide through this COVID-19 period.
Due to lack of social welfare, job security, COVID-19 has a more acute impact on the lives of the densely populated and marginalized people of Asian countries like Singapore, Myanmar, Cambodia, Vietnam, South Korea, and Hong Kong than any other continent of the world.
So it’s more important for Asians to stay healthy and fit during this pandemic outbreak. COVID-19 is triggering an economic fallout for most countries in Asia. Our CEO of Evergreen Group, Mr. David Yong, has provided financial advice to people looking for business opportunities.
Let’s take a look at how staying active and fit can help us through this challenging situation.
Exercise can help improve our immunity system:
In the context of COVID-19, the most important consideration is reducing the transmission chances by avoiding social gathering and boosting up your immunity system. Exercise is one of the best ways to do so, as it helps to redistribute the immunity cells to peripheral tissues. Peripheral tissues, in turn, leads to increased immunity surveillance and regulation.
During exercise, natural killer cells move into the bloodstream in vast numbers and migrate to the sites of inflammation to seek out pathogens, cancerous, and damaged cells. Therefore, it is essential to stay active and continue your workout routine during this coronavirus outbreak.
Eating well helps to fight off the COVID-19:
Without a vaccine, the chances of entirely eliminating the risk of contracting COVID-19 are slim to none. According to the experts, the cure is still 18 to 24 months away. This is why apart from staying healthy and fit; it is also important to eat a balanced and healthy diet. A healthy diet reduces the risk of chronic illnesses like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, depression and anxiety. Thus, a balanced diet ensures our psychological well-being too.
A sound sleep is a must to stay healthy and fit:
Enough sleep is crucial for our bodies to function correctly. During sleep, our bodies repairs cells, consolidates our memories, process information, and clears our body from toxins. Scientific evidence suggests that sleep deprivation impacts physical health, psychological well-being, concentration, and even our emotional intelligence.
The novel coronavirus outbreak is an unprecedented time for all of us. That’s why looking after our mental health is as important as our physical health. In order to maintain a sense of normality, we must maintain our regular sleeping patterns and keep good sleep habits, like avoiding screens before bed, cutting back on caffeine, and creating a restful environment.
Since the outbreak of the pandemic, Evergreen Asia Group has taken up a lot of private initiatives. One of them is giving out a healthy treat to 120 medical front liners in Singapore who are fighting the COVID-19 fight by taking center stage. To help us with our charitable ventures, some leading brands of Evergreen Group, like Wafuken Restaurant has been working tirelessly by delivering healthy meals to the people in need since day one.
Unprecedented times require faster actions. That’s why as a leading investment holding company in Singapore, Evergreen Group‘s prime goal is to help the government to mitigate the immediate impact of COVID-19 and strengthen the responses of other Asian countries like Myanmar, Cambodia, Vietnam, South Korea, and Hong Kong.
