• Maths is a subject in which you can score marks very easily if you know the basic concepts and the formulas for each topic. The first few chapters in your class 6 Maths syllabus deal with the number system. That is the most important and basic part of learning maths. If you know the number system well, you will be able to do the rest of the maths topics well. The number system is the most basic thing that you need to learn in class 6 Maths. Once you know everything about the number system, your basics are covered. Hence, the first step while using the NCERT book for your class 6 Maths exam is to understand the concepts of the number system very clearly.
• After the first three chapters, you will get an idea of natural numbers, whole numbers, prime numbers, composite numbers, and so on. You will know the basic concept of everything that constitutes the number system. After that comes the chapter "Playing with numbers." In this chapter, you get to apply every number system concept that you learned in the previous chapters. This chapter introduces you to factorization, multiples, and other basic concepts related to addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Once you go through the textbook and learn the formulas, start practising thoroughly. You cannot get good marks in Maths unless you practice. If you practice this third chapter after going through the first two chapters, then you will get the hang of the number system and how to play with numbers very well.
• After the number system and playing with numbers, comes the Geometry part. Chapter four is all about the basic geometrical concepts that you need to know to further study advanced geometry in higher classes. Basic geometry is very important for you to learn for this very reason. Get an idea of the shapes, angles, how to calculate the area, perimeter, and volume of a shape. Gaining an idea of these and learning the formulas for the area, perimeter, and volume of various shapes is very important. After understanding the concepts of geometry, the next important thing to do is to memorize the formulas. If you memorize the formulas, you will be able to solve every type of question related to that chapter. Once you are done learning the chapter, practice the numerical problems. Practising the NCERT book questions is the best way to practice Maths. In your examinations, you will get almost all the questions from your NCERT textbook itself. So, the best way to use your NCERT book for your maths examination is to practice the exercises at the end of each chapter. Practice every question given in the exercises to score the marks you desire.

## Get Screened Every Six Months After Your Covid Recovery

Apart from damaging the lungs, the virus can also cause acute myocardial injury and chronic damage to the cardiovascular system.

## By TS Kler

COVID-19 has led to complications and health risks manifold for patients with non-communicable diseases. Almost 75-80 percent of the COVID patients don't require hospitalisation and can recover at home with teleconsultation, but COVID-19 infections can leave the patient with long-term side effects. There are many instances where symptoms of COVID-19 have persisted for several months. Apart from damaging the lungs, the virus can also cause acute myocardial injury and chronic damage to the cardiovascular system.

According to research published in the European Heart Journal, Covid-19 patients who suffer cardiac arrest have a higher possibility of dying as compared to those who are not infected with it, and especially women are at an increased risk of death for the same reason. The virus may directly breach the ACE2 receptor cells, within the myocardium tissue and cause direct viral harm. COVID can result in inflammation of the heart muscles which is known as myocarditis and it can lead to heart failure over time, if not taken care of.

People with a pre-existing heart problem need to be extra cautious. A significant number of patients have suffered cardiac arrest during the recovery period, often resulting in death. Expert suggests that even though the COVID virus wanes, the immune response continues to be hyper-active and that often ends up attacking other organs. It has been observed that almost 80 per cent of these patients have had cardiac arrests 2-3 weeks after testing COVID positive.

We tend to ignore some of the warning signs and due to lack of awareness, sometimes, we fail to prevent certain cardiovascular issues during COVID or even after recovering from COVID. After someone has had COVID-19, if that patient is experiencing a rapid heartbeat or palpitations, it is recommended to contact the doctor immediately because even a temporary increase in heart rate can signal a lot of different things, including the aftermath of being very ill, prolonged inactivity and spending weeks convalescing in bed and even dehydration.

It is necessary to make sure that the patient is drinking enough fluids, especially if the fever persists. Sometimes, people who are recovering from COVID may show symptoms of a condition known as POTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome). However, the link between the development of POTS and COVID is yet to be established. Although, POTS is a neurologic problem, and it is not directly a cardiac issue. It affects the part of the nervous system and may hamper the heart rate and blood flow. The syndrome can also cause rapid heartbeats while standing up. Some of the symptoms of a rapid or irregular heart rhythm may include:

*Feeling of a rapid or irregular heartbeat in the chest (palpitations)

*Shortness of breath

*Feeling lightheaded or dizzy, especially upon standing

*Brain fog

*Fatigue

*Chest pain

*Rapid ups and downs in the pulse rate

Several instances of cardiac arrests post COVID recovery has emphasized the importance of frequent monitoring of heart health. As per experts, cardiac tests like ECG, X-Ray Chest, and lipid profile should be repeated every six months in high-risk individuals with pre-existing conditions like diabetes and hypertension in order to understand whether there is any damage to the heart. Apart from regular monitoring, post-COVID patients must stick to a healthy diet consisting of all the essential nutrients and spicy, oily, canned, artificial sweeteners and processed flavours, or junk food should be strictly avoided. Taking out time for physical exercise, cutting down on alcohol and smoking is necessary. Even the smallest of the symptoms should be taken into consideration and should be immediately addressed by an expert doctor. (IANS/ MBI)

## Turn Loneliness Into Action This Festive Season

When we are experiencing loneliness, it can be easy to slip into the habit of saying no to social activities.

## By N. Lothungbeni Humtsoe

The festive season is a time of joy. Some people truly love it, but for many, it can trigger feelings of loneliness and anxiety. Feeling lonely is common and completely normal -- whether or not we're living through this pandemic. The social pressure to "be happy" can be relentless, but it is important to take a proactive approach to meet not only our emotional needs but also to maintain our mental stability and well-being. With the pandemic, holidays are likely to be challenging, instead, meet them head-on with a renewed dedication and a proactive mindset to avoid 'holiday blues'.

Kanchan Rai, Mental and Emotional Well-being Coach, Founder, Let Us Talk, mentions ways to turn your loneliness into action this season:

Say yes to socializing: When we are experiencing loneliness, it can be easy to slip into the habit of saying no to social activities. Seclusion can make it challenging to feel driven and the mere thought of physically seeing people can lead to stress. Hence it is recommended to saying yes to mingling to help build your confidence. Something as simple as going for a walk with a friend or chatting with your loved ones over the phone can make a huge difference.

Devote your time to others: An effective way to beat loneliness amidst the holidays is by helping others who are less fortunate. The good cause will remind you of all you have to be appreciative for. This will help you to be a part of something larger, thus immersing yourself in the true spirit of the holiday season.

Make the most of technology:
For those with distant loved ones, technology can prove to be an enabler in helping to keep family traditions alive. For instance, celebrate the festive cheer virtually or opening festive gifts on video calls amidst all family members. Taking a moment to network with someone, communicating about shared interests or fond memories, even if it's online, can play a major role in reminding us of the good times.

Get distracted with healthy coping strategies: Distraction can be useful when it's done with the intention of proactively giving yourself a break. For instance, it is recommended to watch a movie to take your mind off stressful thoughts instead of drinking many glasses of wine to forget aloofness. Taking a break will help prevent burnout and will enable you to deal with problems better.

Don't be afraid to speak up: Confiding in reliable friends or relatives about how you feel can often lift the weight off your shoulders, thus making you feel less isolated. It can also be helpful to consult your counsellor if the seasonal isolation has been impacting your emotional well-being. Counselling can help in building your confidence and will facilitate you to discover coping strategies to process any issue. (IANS/ MBI)
