The University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics said it: by the end of August, there could be more than 4,000 COVID-19 deaths in California alone.

Easing social distancing measures is inevitable, yet doing it too soon, too abruptly, could have fatal consequences for the U.S. Best thing we can do?

The best Life Insurance during Covid-19 Pandemic is by protecting ourselves in every possible way.

But what does that mean? It means doing your best to stay healthy, to have a strong immune system and to protect yourself against the virus on a daily basis.

Let me show you how to do it.


Life insurance during the Covid-19 Pandemic – The Ultimate Wellness Guide During Lockdown

The most important question to ask yourself during a pandemic is this: are you healthy? Is your immunity strong enough to handle not only common bacteria and virus infections, but also a never-seen-before type of coronavirus?

There’s always room to be healthier. Luckily, there are a few things you can do right now to make it happen, such as:


Adopting the right diet

Did you know that more than 60% of the immune cells in your body are found in the gut?

That’s how much balanced digestion matters. Make sure to add plenty of immunity-boosting superfoods to your daily meals. The most significant are ginger root, mushrooms, parsley, lemon and salmon, all of which contain essential nutrients to your system.


Taking (extra) vitamins

Good supplements provide what your diet doesn’t – and your body desperately needs every mineral and vitamin available to keep you safe from illness. Vitamin D, for example, is crucial for stimulating immune cells, reducing inflammation and suppressing the appetite for unhealthy meals! But because vitamin D is so hard to find in foods, taking a high-quality supplement helps you make sure the body has just enough for a strong immune system.


Sleeping well

This almost sounds too good to be true: studies published in the Journal of Experimental Medicine proved that sleeping well can actually help your immune system to be more effective in fighting off diseases. If you’re like me, though, the past few months must’ve taken a toll on your sleep schedule (staying up late at night, being to worried about the future to fall asleep and so on). Supplementing with melatonin is a healthy, comfortable aid in sleeping through the night – trust me, your body will thank you later.

Stay safe when going outside – Life insurance during Covid-19 Pandemic

Say you’re having a balanced diet, taking the right supplements and generally staying as healthy as possible. Does that mean you’re good to come in contact with the outside world?

Yes, but not without protection. Life probably won’t be nearly as relaxed as it was before the COVID-19 pandemic for a long time; this means it’s time to make friends with masks, gloves and a new way of handling the outside world. Here’s what I mean:

  • Wear a mask The. Time. After a period of uncertainty, the World Health Organization and the CDC agreed that wearing a mask could keep you safe from getting COVID-19. Our guide on DIY face masks proves just how easy it is to protect yourself, especially now that you can get all the items you need for a face mask at once.
  • Make payments safely. Cash may not be the main way of transmitting the SARS-CoV-2 virus, but nevertheless it is one of the dirtiest items around us. Paying virtually is now easier than ever and you can even use smart watches like this one to make payments during your grocery shopping trips!
  • Stop using your fingertips. A less-heard tip is to avoid touching public surfaces (like buttons or door handles) with your fingertips. That’s because, no matter how careful you are, you may still touch some part of your face by mistake, so why risk it?
