During the 2020 epidemic, in addition to recommending people to wear masks and wash their hands frequently, experts also put forward a suggestion: reduce smoking, even quit smoking, and maintain exercise.
Why should you quit smoking and how can you do it?
Smokers have a higher risk of getting SARS-Cov-2 because they are constantly putting their hands to their lips.
And then, if they get SARS-Cov-2, they run a greater risk of getting a severe case because their lung function is impaired.
Quick tips to curb your cravings:
In addition to reducing smoking, people who smoke all year round should pay more attention to physical exercise. The World Health Organization recommends that healthy adults move more than half an hour each time, and choose exercises of different intensities according to their physical conditions. For ordinary people, jogging, aerobics and yoga are more recommended. Regardless of the type of exercise, you must not forget to warm up (stretching exercise) before exercising. Warming up will activate the muscles of the body, reducing cramps and physical discomfort.
Regular physical exercise is good for the body and mind. It can lower high blood pressure, help control weight and reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke. It can also improve the strength of bones and muscles, and increase balance, flexibility and adaptability. For the elderly, to improve their physical condition is to improve their physical resistance, stay away from disease, and stay away from the SARS-Cov-2.
