Illnesses caused by viruses are among the most frequent causes of fever in adults. Symptoms can include a runny nose, sore throat, cough, hoarseness, and muscle aches. Viruses also may cause diarrhea, vomiting, or an upset stomach. For the most part, these viral illnesses will improve simply with time.With the onset of summer, the number of patients suffering from viral fever has gone up in Lamjung. Most patients visiting local health facilities are suffering from fever and common cold. According to Lamjung Community Hospital, around 200 patients visit the health facility on a daily basis and majority of them are suffering from viral fever. The seasonal disease has mostly affected children and elderly persons. Doctors and health workers in the district have attributed the outbreak to murky and unsafe drinking water.
Dr Prakash Sahu, of a local community hospital, said viral fever was not a disease in itself, but was a symptom of some other ailment. Doctors suggest people to drink plenty water as a precaution against viral fever and other seasonal diseases. Meanwhile, the inflow of patients suffering from seasonal diseases has also increased at the local private clinics. Health workers said people were suffering from fever, diarrhoea and common cold, among other seasonal diseases.
Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.
Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.
Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
