Health, fitness, resistance, strength, agility, flexibility... We offer the cutting-edge tendencies to build a healthy lifestyle.
The COVID-19 pandemic has turned our lives and the world as we knew it upside-down. If the British government coined the phrase Keep Calm and Carry On during the Second World War, now it's German Chancellor Angela Merkel who has been asking her compatriots for "resilience" to face the health crisis and its economic and social repercussions. Below we offer the keys to understanding this concept and making it work in these troubled times.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) itself makes it clear: "Mental health is an integral part of health; indeed, there is no health without mental health". The COVID-19 pandemic has also put our psychological well-being to the test and there is only one way to preserve it: by looking after our mental hygiene. Below we explain how to avoid negative behaviour, achieve emotional equilibrium and improve our quality of life.
At a time when the world is facing an unprecedented health crisis, the United Nations (UN) is stressing the importance of emphasising the role biodiversity plays in protecting us against the risk of infectious diseases such as COVID-19, while also urging us not to forget about the climate crisis that is affecting the planet.
The availability, access and consumption of nutritionally adequate food are the three pillars on which the concept of food security is based. Climate change, water scarcity and soil depletion are some of the threats that threaten it globally, which have now been joined by the socioeconomic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
During the coronavirus crisis, some countries have leveraged the predictive power of big data to keep the global spread of the pandemic in check. This is just one of many examples of how technology can be wielded under the banner of eHealth to help care for and save millions of people around the world.
