The takbeers of the Eid approached and became within days, and people were busy preparing to receive it and buy the things that are related to it, and in the midst of that, some practices may occur that are harmful to your health and your family, which may have negative effects in the short and long term.
These negative practices include things related to clothing, food and activity, as well as a medication regimen if you are sick and taking medication. And because the best defense is the attack, you have to start preparing from this moment to act in a correct and healthy way through the following:
- When buying Eid clothes, be sure to choose the right thing for the weather, and since we are in the summer, it will be wrong to choose heavy clothes only because they are in line with “fashion”, as they may trap heat in the body and lead to your feeling of fatigue. Choose light clothing that matches the weather you live in.
- Choose the appropriate size, as some people may try to buy tight clothes to prove that they are skinny, but this will not happen, but it may lead to feelings of discomfort and leave a mark on the skin due to the pressure left by the tight dress. The correct thing is to take advantage of the remaining days in Ramadan and beyond to start eating healthy food and being active so that you get health benefits that last with you, regardless of the size of your clothes.
- When buying shoes, choose a suitable shoe that does not put pressure on the foot. Never believe someone who tells you that a shoe will expand after wearing it is incorrect. The right shoe is comfortable from the first moment, and the presence of pressure areas in it may lead to the occurrence of ulcers in the foot, and it may lead to serious complications in patients with diabetes and progress to diabetic foot. And again, excuse yourself from fashion and tapered shoes (you are not Sinbad!), As they usually put pressure on the front of the foot. Buy comfortable shoes from the first wear.
- Prepare a healthy Eid hospitality, which means you should stay away from sweets such as maamoul, baklava, kunafa, pudding, chocolate, nougat, and cakes. It provides your body and the bodies of your guests with nothing but caloric surplus. Replace it with fruits such as apples, oranges, bananas, and grapes, and you can also offer dried varieties such as apricots and cherries, and although the latter is energy-dense, it remains better than nougat covered with chocolate.
- Avoid serving processed juice, as it is rich in colorants, preservatives and sugar. Serve natural fruit juice prepared at home without adding sugar. Although natural juice is a good choice, we recommend that the whole fruit, with its wonderful and beneficial fibers, be your first choice.
- Reduce the supply of coffee and caffeine products, and remember that some of your visitors may have high blood pressure , and pumping caffeine into their bodies will harm their health, so help them offer other options such as herbal tea or fruit juice prepared at home without adding sugar.
- Do not smoke your guests. Gone is the time when the presentation of luxury cigarettes on a copper plate was a sign of the wealth of the homeowner. Today, if you do so, it means that you are saying to your guest: I want you to become sick so that you do not visit me again.
- Make sure of your medications. If you are a patient with diabetes, for example or high blood pressure, you must make sure that you have enough treatments. During the holiday period, many pharmacies close their doors, and if you live on the outskirts of the city, you may need a long journey to get treatment. Discreet.
