It is also important to prioritize our physical and emotional well-being, so one of the segment’s offered ideas on how to do just that – making sure that one has a heavy breakfast is one of them. So is ensuring that one gets up and walks around every 15 minutes or so, setting a flexible work schedule, etc.
Mental health is equally important and the webinar laid emphasis on how we can achieve equilibrium. Tips include meditation, unplugging from negative news, reducing screen time, focusing on gratitude, and staying properly hydrated.

Solutions to manage your food include eating high protein foods and good fats, increasing protein and colourful vegetables, and cutting down on caffeine.

The closing segment dealt with how to manage the people around you – other adults, elders with underlying health conditions, children, and those in quarantine. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, there was a reminder to seek help if dealing with psychological issues.
