Mumbai, May 21 : Aster DM Healthcare integrated healthcare service providers has launched 'Our New Earth', a microsite dedicated to support individuals to function constructively as they try to make sense of the 'new normal' way of living, amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
Users can take advantage of trusted sources of information under one umbrella that has been vetted and endorsed by Aster as your trusted healthcare guide and coach.
As the India government remains committed to slowing down the spread of the pandemic and is gradually looking to ease lockdown restrictions, the responsibility rests on the individual for protecting their own health and that of others around them as life continues.
Speaking about Our New Earth microsite initiative, Alisha Moopen, Deputy Managing Director of Aster DM Healthcare said, "As people across the world continue to face daily challenges as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is vital that we make our own wellbeing the number one priority on our task list.
Daily routines have been turned upside down and we are being fed information constantly from many different sources - the news, our friends, social media, our employers.''
''This can be overwhelming and that is why we decided to bring important content and advice that has been verified by healthcare professionals all under one roof, making it simple for people to digest and get the information they need to function positively in the world we are now living in.
This pandemic has taught us that we need to go back to basics - whether it is washing our hands, sleeping well, eating well. This is actually a good time to cultivate better habits and nurture your health to a better place. ''We all have different avatars and roles we play on a daily basis, and this site will enable you to look at useful information, exercises and suggestions to take care of all our relationships which impacts us, directly or indirectly," Alisha said.
The site offers friendly guidance and top tips for defined roles on things like personal and mental hygiene, ways to cope with working from home or transitioning back to spending time in the office, how to create a balance between a child's schoolwork and running a household, as well as useful books to read and diet and nutrition advice.
In addition, the microsite also offers advisory on the safe functioning of top 4 sectors in the region which cannot operate without employees being on-site: Manufacturing, Retail, Construction and Services. (UNI)
