As the second wave of COVID-19 looms on the horizon for the United States today, people are doing what they can to prepare for limited fitness facility access, as well as food preparation for eating well while staying home. If there’s one thing the first shutdown taught us, it’s that working and living from home, at all hours of the day, can make preserving our health and focused mindset difficult.
That’s why health coach and Wall Street Journal Best Selling Author, Aimee Tariq, is here to provide some insight as to how you can preserve your spiritual and physical health during a second coronavirus wave.
“At the end of the day, if we don’t have our health, what do we have?” said Tariq. “In order for business owners, entrepreneurs, and freelancers to stay sharp and motivated through a second shutdown, they need to invest their time and energy into preserving their bodies. Most importantly, they need to make conscious decisions to feed their biological machines with organic, natural, and vitamin-enriched foods.”
A Longtime Proponent of Personal Health Strategies
Tariq is famously the author of Panic! Germs and the Truth Inside American Mouths, which details all of the daily consumptions we make and how they impact our health and vitality. Tariq also draws parallels between our diets and the diagnoses, as well as misdiagnoses, that occur as we feverishly look for ways to optimize our well-being.
But, this wasn’t Tariq’s first hand at authoring self-help health books that provide people everywhere with the information they need to be healthy. She is also the author of A Life with Health, the most comprehensive and practical guide available for organic living. Bringing it back to the basics, Tariq is a big proponent of promoting health and reducing illnesses with nontoxic, natural, and organic living.
“I believe it is my duty to share my knowledge and education surrounding health with as many people as possible,” said Tariq. “Weight gain was a real issue during the first coronavirus lockdown, which is why I want everyone to be prepared to take control of their health heading into 2021. It all starts with our food choices.”
An At-Home Health Battle
Recent reports show that 47% of women and 22% of men experienced moderate to significant weight gain during the months of March to June 2020. With many statewide restrictions that prevented people from leaving their home, going to the gym, and participating in outdoor recreational activities, like going for a jog or hiking, busy business owners and professionals didn’t have time to reinvent the wheel.
The problem is that once we let our health slip through our fingers, concludes Tariq, it causes adverse reactions in the rest of our professional lives. We need to be alert, focused, clear, and energetic every day. We also need to experience REM sleep in the evenings, which can be interrupted through the consumption of junk food. Tariq wants everyone to know there is a better way.
