What is haze? It is an atmospheric phenomenon in which dust, smoke, and other particles obscure the clarity of the sky. Often mistaken as fogs or mist but the truth is, it is visible air pollution! Inhaling the air with haze is dangerous for our health! This coming haze season, it is better to follow these steps to keep you active and healthy!
1. Reduce outdoor activities
As much as possible, stay inside. The air filled with haze is bad for our health. For adults, it is best to invest in indoor gyms and for kids, avoid playing outside!
2. Drink plenty of water
Water helps your body flush out toxins absorbed by your lungs and skin! Also, the body gets easily dehydrated during haze so it is best to always replenish your body!
3. Wear a mask
We can’t hide all day inside our home so if you need to go out be sure to wear a mask!
4. Strengthen personal hygiene
After returning home, wash your face and hands to remove dirt from your skin and mouth.
5. Protect your eyes
The haze weather could cause dryness and other conditions in our eyes. Use eye drops to relieve eye discomfort!
6. Regular use of medication
For those with asthma or chronic sinusitis, don’t forget to take regular medications and sprays!
7. Light diet
Avoid fatty and fried foods and switch to a light diet like veggies!
8. Drink refreshing soup
Make it a point to drink refreshing soups such as mangosteen, bean soup, or chrysanthemum tea to help your body relieve from the heat!
9. More vitamin C and E supplements
Vitamin C and E keep the lung tissue healthy!
10. If sick, seek medical attention immediately!
If you start suffering from cough, cold, asthma, sore throat, or eye discomfort, don’t hesitate to seek medical attention immediately!
