What a joyful occasion Diwali is, with all communities coming together to celebrate a unique social festival! There’s a lot of light, and cheer and new clothes and flowers and festivity and food of course! Here are 10 tips for you to celebrate, stay safe and stay healthy this Diwali.
- Sweets are hard to resist and during Diwali, it’s even harder isn’t it!? Indians are genetically prone to diabetes and so it is always safer to keep sugar and starch intake minimal. Sweets that use chemical preservatives should be avoided because they damage our kidneys and liver. and may also cause asthma attacks and cancer. Use organic sugar and sugar substitutes for best results!
- Avoid sweets that have ‘silver’ coating. Such foils are often adulterated by aluminum and aluminum being a hazardous metal can accumulate in our body tissues and can also enter the brain.
- Firecrackers are fun, but they increase air and noise pollution. It is good to buy as little firecrackers as possible, because that can help us spend less and can also stop us from polluting our environment.
- While using firecrackers we are definitely faced with the risk of burn injuries. Do take a few precautions. Always wear slippers when playing with firecrackers and always light them only from a safe distance. Kids should be allowed to burn firecrackers only under adult supervision. If you do get burnt, organic and natural aloe vera products soothe your skin and help quick healing.
- Do not light firecrackers in crowded areas or on the roadsides, because that might prove to be dangerous for bystanders and the general public. Wash after playing with firecrackers with natural handwash. Organic soaps are a good option as well.
- If possible, wear earplugs while exposed to explosive firecrackers. It is really safe, for the excessive noise might damage our ears in the long run. Use facewashes to stay fresh in the polluted environment.
- It is better to say ‘No’ to alcohol, as any excess is easily possible on this day of celebration. You can avoid a hangover and also the risk of driving while intoxicated if you must drive your car and visit your friends and family.
