5 ways that COVID-19 will transform your relationship with health by 2021

Maintaining good health has never been more crucial than it is in the current situation. Unfortunately, there are so many factors right now that go against our attempts to achieve our goal of good health, making our efforts an uphill task.

Factors That Go Against Our Attempts at Good Health

As India goes through the various phases of unlock in the post-COVID environment, many of us continue to work from home. Others who have started to go back to the office are still exposed to the stressful situation as the country braces for the second wave of COVID-19.

With the Click 2 Protect Health policy, you get health insurance, and life insurance. It's easy to purchase and you get tax benefits from it as well.


Working from home results in our health being compromised in various ways.

Disrupted Sleep Cycles

We struggle to meet unrealistic deadlines set by bosses because they feel that we are available to work 24/7. The result is more extended hours and sleeping at odd hours.

Unhealthy Eating Habits

The tendency to snack increases, with food being accessible at all times. If work prevents you from adhering to regular mealtimes, you end up snacking in between.

Mental Stress

Working from home has ushered in many adverse health issues. The main difficulty seems to be a sense of isolation. A report published by Deloitte highlighted a survey where 57% of women and 47% of men felt their mental health worsened as a result of social distancing.

Ergonomic Issues

We don't have the seating arrangements that we take for granted at the office in our homes. It leads to all sorts of back, neck, and shoulder ailments. Ultimately, you could end up with spinal problems.

The Ever-Present Threat of Infection

Worrying about the possibility of infection is another reason for mental stress. There are so many asymptomatic cases going around that even the slightest cough or sneeze causes alarm.

How HDFC Life Can Help

With a high possibility of any of the health issues mentioned above, having health insurance becomes even more critical. Unfortunately, the number of people in India with adequate health insurance is a dismal minority.

Fortunately, HFDC Life offers a variety of viable health insurance policies that you can buy. Let's take a look at a few of them:
