It’s said, Health is Wealth. But how seriously do you take it?
Sickness is like a thief in the night who comes without any prior warning. To keep you safe from intruders, you need to take security measures. Likewise, for a healthy life free of sickness, I have listed 3 must rules that you must follow.
The Three Rules For A Healthy Life:
#1 Keep a First Aid Box at all times:
You need a first aid kit at home so that you can administer the first-aid when someone is injured or sick until the person is admitted in the hospital.
What should it include: Personal items like your medication, emergency phone numbers, and any other items needed for your health-care. Apart from that, these are the must-include:
- 2 Absorbent compress dressings
- 2 Triangular bandages
- 5 Antibiotic ointment packets
- 2 Roller bandages of varying widths.
- 4 Non-adhesive dressings of varying widths
- 2 Non-latex disposable gloves
- 1 Notepad and Pen
- Plastic Bags of varying sizes
- 1 Adhesive tape like micro-pore.
- 1 Resuscitation mask or face shield.
- 5 Antiseptic wipes
- Sterile gauze pads of different sizes

Always stay updated regarding which hospital or diagnosis center to go, and how much it will cost you so that you can prepare yourself for any emergency.
