It becomes essential for an HIV-positive person to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Because HIV also invites mental health disorders if it is not managed properly.
Here are some ways to make changes in your lifestyle to stay healthy.
Alter you Lifestyle
1) Eat Healthy
There are a number of drugs that an HIV-positive person takes, thus increasing the chances of its side effects. Eating proper food will ensure to reduce these side effects.
Always consult your doctor before following any diet. In general, you can take food that is rich in nutrients. Such as nuts and seeds, lean meats, fatty fish, beans and lentils.
Apart from this, there are many food items which can worsen your condition like seafood, raw egg, dairy products etc. Hence it is important to follow the diet recommended by the doctor.
2) Stay Active
Exercising regularly will improve your mood and ultimately reduce your health problems. Like high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease etc.
Taking the time daily to do a little exercise will improve your strength and reduce your risk of depression and anxiety. You don’t need to do heavy exercise but light exercise like walking, and cycling for 30 to 60 minutes a day will be healthy.
3) Take vaccination from Time to Time
The process of rapid recovery is taking medicines and vaccines in time. Because vaccines are very important in HIV and a little delay can make the virus worse. So follow a regular routine of taking vaccines to avoid serious complications of the infection.
It is important to stay positive and look on the bright side of life while going through tough times. For that, you can do yoga and meditation to feel light and calm. As long as you feel good inside, your chances of recovery are high.
