With Diwali just around the corner, aroma of our favorite sweets is filled up in the air and the markets are brimming with firecrackers, colourful lights, lanterns and diyas. However, many people have to face post Diwali complications like burns, weight gain etc. Here are 5 tips to celebrate Diwali with fervour without it taking a toll on you.
1. Keep a First Aid Kit Handy
Chances of someone experiencing health issues are huge considering there are crackers and fireworks everywhere. Hence it is recommended to keep a first aid kit which includes creams, eye drops and inhalers handy to prevent any major complications in case of an eventuality.
2. Ensure there is a Fire Extinguisher
We all know about the number of accidents which take place at the time of Diwali. It is advised to ensure there is a fire extinguisher in close proximity to the area where you are bursting crackers. Also, keep water and sand handy for unexpected fire.
3. Stay Hydrated
Considering the temptation for delicious food at the time of Diwali, keeping ourselves hydrated is an effective method to prevent health issues. It will not cleanse waste materials from your body but will also satiate your hunger pangs.
4. Eat Healthy
Do not ditch your diet this Diwali! Instead of gorging on ghee-laden desserts and sweets, opt for home-made sweets like kheer and shrikhand. You can also have dry fruits like raisins, almonds, cashews and dates for a healthy diet.
5. Be Sensitive Towards Others
While nobody is stopping you from enjoying your favorite festival, you should be responsible enough. Bursting crackers which do not create a lot of noise is the first step towards being sensitive as too much of noise pollution can be harmful for everyone, especially senior citizens and pets.
