How to keep healthy and wash hands correctly? Now’s the perfect time to remember everything we learned in preschool:
- Wash your hands.
- Eat your vegetables.
- Be kind to people.
- Avoid doorknobs.
All teasing aside (but seriously—avoid doorknobs at all costs!), your health is your hands. Whether you decide to wash your hands and use hand sanitizer, choose an apple over apple pie, or watch one less TV episode to catch a bit more sleep, every choice you make will lead to a healthier, happier you!
Make wellness your number one priority by following these steps.
Hand washing and daily healthy tips
1. Wash hands with soap for at least 20 seconds.
We all know that we should wash our hands. But did you know that there are good, better, and best ways to wash your hands? Lather and scrub the back of your hands, up to your wrists, between fingers, and even under your nails. Trust us—you won’t be sad you spent an extra few seconds getting squeaky clean.
2. Cough or sneeze into your elbows.
Prevent fluids from spreading by avoiding contact with your hands completely. In fact—be sure to avoid contact with your eyes, nose, and mouth as much as possible.
3. Spray down surfaces and frequently touched objects.
Make sure your well-worn and gathering-space surfaces are super clean by giving them a quick touch of Thieves®! Our Thieves Household Cleaner is powerful, ultra-concentrated and plant-based formula that helps cleanse your surfaces without the use of harsh chemicals.
Take it easy
1. Diffuse Thieves and R.C.
Warm up your home with the cozy and inviting scent of Thieves® essential oil blend, while also bringing in some cleansing power! If you want a touch of refreshing coolness, add a few drops of R.C.™ essential oil blend to your diffuser. You could even double up and diffuse them together!
2. Keep hydrated.
Hydration isn’t just important during exercise. According to the CDC in the US, healthy hydration levels can help increase your body’s capacity to fight off sickness and keep your temperature normal.
3. Stay home if you don’t feel well.
Feeling under the weather? Take on the day at home and recharge.
1. Keep moving!
There are 1,440 minutes in every day. You only need 30 of those minutes to get up and move to have a positive impact on your body and overall health! Small changes can make a big difference when it comes to your body’s health: Take the stairs instead of the elevator, park toward the back of the parking lot, or try out a new hobby that gets you up and moving. Your muscles, mind, and motivation will thank you!
2. Eat your fruits and veggies.
We know you’ve heard this before, but fruits and veggies are a staple to any healthy food routine! Adding color to your plate is an easy way to make sure you’re getting a wide variety of fruits and vegetables.
3. Regulate your sleep cycle.
Believe it or not, sleep is just as important as regular exercise or eating a balanced diet when it comes to your overall health. Not only does it improve productivity and concentration, but it can also help strengthen your immune system! According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the US, adults should be getting 7+ hours of sleep a night.
