TAKING CARE OF MENSTRUAL HEALTH DURING QUARANTINE


TAKING CARE OF MENSTRUAL HEALTH DURING QUARANTINE
During quarantine, it is extremely important for everyone to maintain hygiene by bathing regularly and wearing clean, well ironed clothes. An important thing for girls is to keep in mind their menstrual hygiene which a lot of them tend to ignore. Carelessness can lead to infections thus it is important to take care of oneself.
1.       Keep changing pads/ tampons regularly- Keep changing napkins and other things of use after usage of 6-8 hours. This is done to avoid the development of any kind of bacteria that may be harmful.
2.      Increase water intake- Drinking 2-3 litres of water everyday will ensure that the flow is good and there is less bloating and cramps.
3.      Reduce intake of sugar/ carbs and consume more fruits- During PMS, mood swings can take a toll on one’s health thus leading to BINGE EATING. This can lead to cramps and weight gain. To avoid this, one must increase our fruit intake to get more nutrition.
4.      Do a light exercise- Exercises like walking, yoga, stretching and dancing can increase blood flow releasing endorphins or happy hormones to put you in a better mood.
5.      Sleep on time and avoid caffeine- This will ensure that you feel fresh and rejuvenated. For caffeine, use substitutes like ginger ale, lemon water and herbal tea to help you with those cramps and sore muscles.

MINDFULNESS IN THE TIME OF QUARANTINING


MINDFULNESS IN THE TIME OF QUARANTINING
Quarantine is a very emotionally vulnerable time and it is very important to practice mindfulness for a calm and peaceful lifestyle. While the world is struggling with new Corona Virus cases everyday and more than 3 billion people are under a lockdown, we are under a threat of developing problems like anxiety and depression. We can take certain steps to ensure that our mental health remains good and we take care of ourselves.
1.       Work out in small time gaps- The next time you see a short ad break on television, get up and do a quick 30 round of squats and lunges. While washing dishes, practice heel rising. While waiting for milk to boil in the kitchen, do 10 pushups. This will ensure that there is good blood circulation in the body.
2.      Skipping and Hula Hoop: A skipping rope or hula hoop are available with most people at home, so start working out in small sets every morning and let those happy hormones out.
3.      Dancing- The best way to sweat it out while relaxing your mind is to dance. Put on your favorite music and dance with your family for as much time as you can. Not only will it help you to remain fit and happy, but will also ensure that you make new memories.
4.      Walk up and down the stairs- For all those people who have stairs at home, the stairs can be the best way to tone your lower body. Go up and down the stairs as much as you can.
5.      Stretch- As soon as you wake up in the morning, do a nice set of stretching. Take your arms straight up and touch your toes. Sway your upper body in all directions. This little exercise will help you become more active.
6.      Yoga and meditation- The importance of these is known worldwide and is well proven. Sit on the ground on a yoga mat or a bed sheet and do deep breathing. This can be followed by a an asana. ( See our HEEALS latest posts for all good yoga asana). Start meditating by closing your eyes and concentrating on the tip of your nose or the centre of your forehead. It will help you feel more calm and composed.

World Water Day, on 22 March

The World Water Day 2020 campaign explains statements such as:
  • We cannot afford to wait. Climate policy makers must put water at the heart of action plans.
  • Water can help fight climate change. There are sustainable, affordable and scalable water and sanitation
    solutions.
  • Everyone has a role to play. In our daily lives, there are surprisingly easy steps we can all take to address climate change.
World Water Day, on 22 March every year, is about focusing attention on the importance of water. This year’s theme, ‘Water and Climate Change’, explores how water and climate change are inextricably linked.
As the global population grows, so does the demand for water, which depletes natural resources and damages the environment in many places. Solutions include protecting carbon sinks such as oceans and wetlands, adopting climate-smart agricultural techniques, and increasing the safe reuse of wastewater.
Water is our most precious resource – we must use it more responsibly. We must balance all of society’s water needs while ensuring the poorest people don’t get left behind.
Hand hygiene is essential to containing the spread of COVID-19, as well as other infectious diseases. If you have access to soap and water.
 On this World Water Day, and any other day, remember to wash your hands regularly with water and soap or with an alcohol-based hand gel.
This #WorldWaterDay, let’s show our best hand hygiene moments to fight #COVID19.

SAFE DURING THE CORONA VIRUS PANDEMIC






SOME GUIDELINES FOR STAYING SAFE DURING THE CORONA VIRUS PANDEMIC
With the number of cases in India already crossing 200 and increasing rapidly, there has been a sense of panic among the people. With numerous rumors and Whatsapp forwards, people have been exposed to information that may or may not be true and has no credibility. Thus, all people are requested to undertake the following measures seriously as prescribed by the Ministry of Health guidelines:
1.       Keep washing your hands thoroughly at regular intervals.
2.      Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth.
3.      Stay at home when sick.
4.      Practice social distancing
5.      Wear a mask if showing symptoms like coughing.
6.      Keep a sanitizer handy and disinfect things regularly.
7.      Always use a tissue while coughing or sneezing.
8.     If you have fever, cough or difficulty in breathing, seek medical help immediately.
9.      Do not hoard items due to panic buying.
10.  Avoid use of public transport for some time. Prefer to work from home.
11.   Stay at home and avoid gatherings of more than 10 people.
12.   Always keep masks and sanitizers in reach.

Remember, there is no need to panic. The government is doing a great job towards containing the pandemic. As responsible citizens it is our duty to ensure that we fight this together and take all guidelines seriously. Each individual must try to spread as much awareness as possible. The mortality rate is low. WE CAN FIGHT THIS TOGETHER!!
Wishing Good Health For All From HEEALS Team

INTERNSHIP VOLUNTEERING OPPORTUNITIES IN FORMAL & INFORMAL EDUCATION PROJECTS

INTERNSHIP VOLUNTEERING OPPORTUNITIES IN FORMAL AND INFORMAL
EDUCATION PROJECTS
Formal education refers to the education that takes place in the education and training system of a country. It is official, structured and is organized by public organizations or recognized private institutions and results with formal certification recognized by relevant national educational authorities. In simple terms, this means that the certification of completion of education that we receive at the end of our education period is the end result or proof of our skills and knowledge.

Formal education is mainly full – time education and is a continuous process with defined stages. Formal education encompasses primary, lower and upper secondary education, higher and university education that culminate in the achievement of a degree or a professional qualification or diploma or a recognized certification. School education is given utmost importance all across the world because it lays the foundation of a child’s bright future by providing him/ her  a platform to showcase and make full use of the unique talents s/he possesses. This not only helps an individual to do well financially, but also helps him/ her to bring about impactful changes around them.
Non-formal learning is characterized by a deliberate choice of the person, which takes place outside of the systems mentioned above. This include educational and training purposes, even volunteering, the national civil service, private social service and in enterprises.
 Non – formal education is also any type of structured and organized learning which is institutionalized, intentional and planned by an educational provider, but which does not lead to formal level of qualification recognized by the relevant national education authorities. People of all age groups can participate in non - formal education which can be offered through courses, workshops, seminars.
Non formal education is as important as formal education, because it helps an individual to enhance their personality by learning certain soft skills that help develop the emotional quotient of the person. Activities done selflessly for the benefit of others can take a person a long way. It not only gives satisfaction for having done a good deed, but can also bring about big changes in society and the lives of those in need.
Countries across the world, including India, welcome volunteers from across the world to selflessly engage themselves in both formal and informal education projects through a wide range of internship and volunteering programs. In India, there is a need to spread awareness among children in several domains like menstruation, sanitation, gender equality, sexual exploitation etc. Thus, volunteers are required to spread this message in a friendly and easy to learn manner. Through small changes, we can transform our upcoming generations into responsible and wise citizens.
At HEEALS, we invite people from all across the world, who have the time, intention and relevant skills to make a difference in society, to come and intern with us. For us, both formal and informal education is equally important in the life of a child. We aim at making the lives of children belonging to poor financial backgrounds a better place by providing those opportunities to explore and showcase the unique talent that they possess. Come work with us today!

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY #EachForEqual 2020 An Article By Tvisha


INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY
#EachForEqual 2020

International Women’s Day (8 March) is a global day celebrating the social, political, economic and cultural achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for working towards women’s equality. Imagining life without women is quite hard-hitting. The fact remains that all the great people of the world are born from the womb of a woman and it is a woman from whom those great people have taken their initial teachings. And that is the reason we have always emphasized upon giving the due respect to women in their life. And that is why women’s day is celebrated with so much of zeal and it has spread throughout the world.

This year’s campaign, #EachForEqual, draws attention to the difference individuals can make.
Celebrating women is a way of feeling gratitude to each and every woman in one’s life, be it in the professional or the personal life. International Women’s day is observed every year on 8th of March and it is observed around the world to celebrate the velour of women. Women from various cultural and ethnic groups come together crossing all the boundaries to remember their struggle of many decades for peace, justice, equality and development. The day allows women to raise their voice for equal opportunities in whatever field they wish to participate in;  the same men are provided with. Women like Mary Kom, Saina Nehwal and Malala Yusufzai have achieved so much in life despite facing struggles and inspire us through their journey to do better in life.
International women’s Day is all about feeling women realize their worth and giving them boost to achieve as per their actual potential. On this day the world unites to appreciate their courage to cross all the hurdles and make such tremendous improvement in all most all the spheres of life. Besides that, the most important thing to be given emphasis is the work that still needs to be done to fill that gap completely that has existed from ages.

So let us come together and celebrate the spirit of being a woman and thank the women in our life through little gestures of care. Women have contributed so much to society through their achievements in different fields. It is time for us now to appreciate their efforts by doing our bit. It is time for us now to work actively towards issues like gender equality, equal work- equal pay and women safety so that all women feel safe and valued not just on one particular day, but every day.
