Celebrate a Healthy & Safe Diwali - Diwali Blog - Concept Medical


Diwali, the “Festival of Lights,” has arrived and is widely celebrated throughout India. It’s that time of year when we get together with family and friends and eat a variety of festive sweets and snacks. During these times, however, we frequently overlook how our activities may affect our health. Let us take the necessary health precautions to ensure that everyone has a happy and healthy Diwali.

The mouth-watering and lip-smacking sweets and dishes served during the festival simply leave us wanting more. On the other hand, oily, unhealthy, and chemical-laden sweets and treats can cause bloating, constipation, and weight gain.

It may also raise blood sugar and cholesterol levels and increase your risk of heart disease. High levels of noise and air pollution are known to cause discomfort in pregnant women, the elderly, and newborn children. Let us commit to having an Eco-friendly Diwali now and in the future. This Diwali, celebrate mindfully and prioritise your health. Here are some health tips to help you and your family have a healthy and safe Diwali:

Eat healthily:

Do you enjoy snacking on calorie-laden Diwali treats and sweets? Choose low-calorie sweets, nuts, and fruits instead. It is preferable to eat homemade foods rather than store-bought or processed foods. It is recommended that you keep track of when and what you eat, and practice portion control so that your heart remains healthy.

Celebrate an Eco-friendly Diwali
Pledge to make this Diwali noise-free and smoke-free and enjoyable for one and all. Crackers are associated not only with air pollution but noise pollution as well. It harms the hearing skills of the elderly and also triggers many respiratory infections. Light up this Diwali with earthen days instead of bursting crackers.

Supervise young children
Still, bursting crackers? You must ensure that young children are supervised by adults while bursting crackers. Always wear cotton clothes and keep a first-aid kit handy for any accidental burn injuries.

Limit your intake of fatty foods.

Make wise and healthy choices this Diwali and avoid deep-fried, unhealthy foods. Instead of frying, make roasted snacks or bake them. This will help reduce oil consumption.

Keep hydrated.

Drinking plenty of water is one of the best ways to stay hydrated during these festive days. During the festivities, water cleanses the body of all toxic waste materials while also providing energy.

Avoid drinking alcohol.

It is best to avoid alcoholic beverages because they are harmful to your liver and heart health, as well as increasing your risk of cancer. Instead, drink freshly squeezed juices or plain water.
