  1. Keep your hygiene up to date

    Even if you don't leave the house and your colleagues can’t smell you through the screen, it’s important to keep your daily hygiene routine: bathing, combing your hair, brushing your teeth, wearing clean clothes, and more. With this in addition to feeling good, it will help you project a better image.

  2. Set aside feeding times and respect them

    Have you gained weight during the pandemic? Did you know that skipping food or spending long fasts makes you fat? This causes your metabolism to decrease and as soon as your body receives food, it stores it in sufficient fat reserves, by the saver gene, which causes overweight and obesity.

    That is why it’s important to give yourself time to take your food. In addition, you can save yourself discomfort from gastritis derived from prolonged fasting, as the production of gastric acids does not stop and without food, your stomach is constantly irritated.

    Avoid spending a lot of time without eating and this will also help you stay focused and in a good mood.

  3. Perform active pauses every 45 or 90 minutes

    If your home office requires you to spend a lot of time sitting in front of the computer, it is possible that you suffer from stiffness or tension in the neck and shoulders, for this reason it is important that you pause throughout your day, including some exercises, so that you are more active and focus and decrease muscle tension.

  4. Consume fiber and drink plenty of fluids

    Maintaining a balanced diet, including fiber and plenty of fluids is very important to prevent constipation, which is often one of the causes of hemorrhoids.

    Lack of physical activity, spending a lot of time sitting, poor diet, low fluid intake, among others, are risk factors for suffering from problems also known as almorranas.

    If this is the case, it’s important to start your hemorrhoid treatment with the first symptoms. Remember that, Nikzon (link a página de Nikzon TAYA), in practical chewable tablets is the effective relief of hemorrhoids, helping to reduce discomfort such as:
