6 Tips To Keep Your Respiratory Health Safe This Holi

The season of spring has finally arrived, and Holi, the festival of colors, is ready to greet us with color, happiness, sweets, and the warmth of human relationships.

Nevertheless, we must not risk our health for fun. With the festivities right around the corner, it is time to consider healthy, safe, and long-term habits that will assist in joyful and stress -free Holi celebrations.

In recent years, natural, organic colors have become more prominent. However, many of us are still concerned about the health hazards they pose, such as allergies, skin problems, respiratory disorders, and other conditions. 

Following some Holi recommendations will ensure that you and your loved ones remain healthy and happy throughout the festivities. As the occasion involves the possibility of ingesting toxic colors, being soaked with colored water for prolonged periods, and mixing with large numbers of people, Holi festival safety recommendations are important, especially for respiratory patients. 

Here are some helpful safety tips on the festival of Holi that you should know:


Avoid playing with colors:

Playing with colors also involves some amount of exertion, which might result in shortness of breath, which can contribute to respiratory concerns in some situations. People have a tendency to toss dry colors into the air, which can be problematic for people with allergies or battling a respiratory infection. Colors include chemicals that might irritate the inner lining of your nose. You can also replace chemical colors with natural alternatives like turmeric, rose powder, beetroot, and other components, so you can enjoy Holi in a healthy way. 


Cover your mouth and nose:

Patients with asthma or other respiratory conditions should wear a mask or scarf around their faces when playing Holi. You should ensure that the nose and mouth are covered and that the material is breathable. These coverings can help to avoid breathing in toxic airborne particles, preventing respiratory problems. Smoke and dry colors in the air can also cause allergies and respiratory issues in healthy individuals. Furthermore, because coronavirus is still a risk, we recommend wearing a mask when around crowds.


Beware of smoke and pollution:

If you suffer from respiratory disorders or are experiencing respiratory disease symptoms, you should take extra precautions. Avoid going outdoors. If you must, you should always wear a face mask. Elderly individuals should keep their windows closed and their homes sanitized to prevent pollution from entering Air purifiers have also proved to be beneficial in reducing the risk of respiratory infections. Holi Eve is marked by a massive blaze called Holika Dehen, which you may escape by staying indoors for a few hours. This will also protect your lungs from any contaminants or smoke particles.


Avoid consuming alcoholic beverages:

Many individuals go all out for the festival of colors, even consuming alcoholic beverages. Avoid alcoholic beverages since they might trigger breathing episodes in certain people. According to several studies, alcoholic beverages such as red wine, white wine, cider, and beer have a greater risk of provoking allergies. You may substitute various nutritious and enjoyable beverages, such as homemade fruit and vegetable juices, for these dangerous beverages. You can also satisfy your sweet tooth with thandai. To avoid respiratory problems this Holi, try to avoid consuming alcohol, especially in excess.


Exercise on a regular basis:

Participating in some form of physical exercise can keep you at a healthy weight and, as a result, will help you manage your respiratory symptoms for the long run. In reality, regular exercise boosts your immune system, making it easier to fight respiratory infections. Respiratory patients should strive to stick to an indoor training routine, especially when irritants such as pollution and smoke are present outside.


Be sure to get your treatments on time:

It's also a wise idea to follow all prescriptions as scheduled that your doctor recommends, to avoid symptoms and exacerbations. Even if you don't have any symptoms, you must follow up with your physician on a regular basis if diagnosed with a chronic respiratory disease. Ongoing treatment will aid in the reduction of inflammation in your airways and keep your illness under control. By following your treatment requirements, you can hopefully avoid an exacerbation during Holi. If the side effects of your asthma medications are upsetting you, talk to your doctor about modifying your treatment plan.

Final Thoughts

Holi is a colorful event. We hope you will take these safety tips about Holi seriously, as they will safeguard not only you but also your loved ones. From all of us at Sanrai Med India, we wish you and your family a joyous, safe, and fun-filled Holi!
