Tired of Being Sick? Try This
By Virginia Laird
It is just the time of year that can lead to a great deal of illness. That, compacted with allergy season forging ahead, can keep you living with painful headaches and other discomforts. For those who are tired of being sick all the time, there are a few things you can do to limit the germs you come into contact with. Health and wellness experts have compiled a list of tips for you to apply to your life today. These include:
- Wash your hands often
- Avoid touching your face
- Clean surfaces often
- Invest in sanitizer
Wash Your Hands Often
Healthcare experts stress the importance of hand washing as part of a healthy lifestyle. Because almost every task we accomplish requires the use of the hands, we are constantly coming into contact with a variety of germs. It is imperative that you wash your hands often with warm water and soap. Health and wellness experts say that if you find yourself washing fewer than seven times each day, you need to step up your hand washing game. Make sure you wash (or sanitize when a sink is not around) before eating, after coming in contact with large groups of people, after gassing up the car, after using an ATM, and many more times each day.
Avoid Touching Your Face
Your hands may be the filthiest part of your body due to the fact that they come in contact with so many surfaces, people, and much more. Health and wellness professionals say that touching your face increases the chances of germs entering the body. While it can be an impossible task to stop doing this, it is essential. Make today the day you keep your hands away from your face.
Clean Surfaces Often
According to research, the surfaces of your home (namely the kitchen and bathroom) are breeding grounds for germs. These are the places that people use often. For this reason, it is advised that you clean the surfaces of your home often. Nothing too much, just a simple sanitizing wipe can help rid the surface of germs.
Invest in Sanitizer
When there is no sink available, hand sanitizer can be helpful in getting rid of the germs. For this reason, health and wellness experts say that you should keep sanitizer in your purse, home, car, and any other place you often are. This is just another line of defense in preventing illness.
