Sitting in front of a screen for hours will result in negative impacts on your health. To get rid of this habit, you can create a proper schedule. Instead of watching all four seasons of a series in a single day, you can divide episodes per day including break within more than two episodes to ensure if you are not spending a very long time in front of the screen.

To get rid of toxic pressure the first step is self-acceptance which is the key to contentment. Once you will accept and appreciate yourself the way you are, you will never feel any urge to be accepted by a certain set of people or a fancy group at your school, college or workplace.

Excessive eating of Junk Food

Say No to Junk Food sounds like a perfect slogan for a perfect and healthy lifestyle but no one is asking you say complete no to junk food if you love it badly. You just need to control your excessive eating of junk food which is forbidden. The reason is that it is not easy to control your eating habits suddenly. How funny it sounds to be a junk food addict at night and suddenly being able to forget all about it the next morning. Not only funny it is impractical to. You can begin it by fixing two or three days a week to eat junk food and not to even touch it on other days.

Comparing yourself with others

Most of the people spend half of their day by comparing their life with others whom they find to live a better and easy life. But to be frank, this is delusional. Everyone has their struggles which you might not even be aware of. Even the top celebrities whom we find most successful and happy are also struggling with their problems. Hence, be grateful for what you have and work hard for achieving what you lack without comparing yourself with others.

Government’s Latest Warning Related To The Use Of N-95 Masks With Valves

Published

N-95 maks with valve

With the outbreak of global pandemic COVID-19, the demand for sanitizers, disinfectants, handwash and masks rose in the market. Out of these, the demand for masks rose at such a high rate that even the domestic production of masks began. Many people began to use N-95 mask to protect themselves from the grave dangers of this pandemic. From designer to domestic handmade masks, masks have become an integral part of our lifestyle in COVID-19 era. It has been almost six months since the outbreak of the virus and every day we get to learn something about new. The latest learning is about N-95 masks with valves which according to the Government are not the safest measure to prevent yourself from COVID-19.

What are valved N-95 masks?

N-95 maks with valve(valved mask)

N-95 respirator masks are a type of medical masks which are highly efficient infiltration of airborne particles. These masks are generally close fit to the face so as to provide a required seal to the one who wears it. As Coronavirus came up, many people began to use N95 masks as the safest measure to the virus. Among N-95 masks, the valved N-95 masks are the part of recent controversy. An N-95 mask with valve is made up with a raised plastic disk which is embedded in the fibre. The main function of the valve is to filter the air that the wearer inhaled so as to ensure comfortable breathing and restricting the entry of pathogens. These masks are the most common masks to use during smog, pollution and other such conditions.

Controversy with N-95 valved masks

The valve present in any N-95 masks is to filter the air and restrict the entry of pathogens suspended in the air. However, these valves do not filter the air exhaled by the wearer. The risk is increased when the wearer is asymptomatic or infected by the virus. The N-95 valved masks hence act as a carrier of the virus which might prevent the wearer but can infect the others in turn. The Government has recently warned to reduce the inappropriate use of N-95 valved masks.

Then which masks should be worn?

N-95 maks with valve(homemademask)

According to health experts, the use of valved N-95 masks can lead to release of virus in the air as they do not filter the air the wearer is exhaling. Thus, to prevent all this, it is better to encourage the use of homemade masks and face covers. Doctor Rajiv Garg, Director-General of Health Services has written letters to all the states and Union Territories to address this issue and also advised them to encourage the use of homemade masks and face covers. In his words, “It is to bring to your knowledge that the use of valved respirator N-95 masks is detrimental to the measures adopted for preventing the spread of coronavirus as it does not prevent the virus from escaping out of the masks, I request you to instruct all to follow the use of face/mouth cover and prevent inappropriate use of N-95 masks”.

Some other Guidelines to keep in mind

The Government advisory has restricted the share of masks or face covers with anyone else. The use of masks should be personal. Every family member should have their own masks or face cover. Along with this, Government has also advised keeping some pointers in mid while making masks at home such as the fabric should be washed well in boiled water for around five minutes and then dried completely before making the face cover. Government has also advised adding salt to the water. The masks should fit well the face of the wearer and there should not be any gaps on either side.
