In order to keep your hands clean use a good soap:
Do you have dry skin
I have very dry skin and if I wash my hands often, my hands dry out. This is why I am using a good hand lotion.
2.Eat Super foods and keep your immune system strong.
I have been drinking water with a mix of super foods powder and I have not been sick for over 2 years now. If you take care of yourself, your immune system protects you. And this is exactly what you need to do right now.
The good thing about super foods is, that it tastes good. You can add it to shakes or smoothies and the kids love it too. This is a very easy and effective way to strengthen your immune system daily.
3.Go outside on long walks.
Take the dog and the kids, stay away from crowds. No matter what kind of weather you have, go for a walk, take the bicycles or go jogging. Just keep active and fit. Wear the right clothes and make it fun to be outside.
Go in your backyard and start an herb garden or plant vegetables or flowers. Whatever works for you. I have a little balcony and just started an herb garden with basil, thyme and some mint.
4.Drink good teas
Drinking a lot of water and teas help you to stay healthy. Here are some teas I recommend and the best thing is they taste great:
Get creative in your home
5.Getting bored staying home?
If you are staying at home from work right now and have a lot of time, what about decorating your home with fresh colors. Check out your living room. Does it look dark and could use some happy colors?
- What about an accent wall color? Check if you have some left over paint color which would look good on a wall.
- Or refresh your pillows? Do you know how to sew? Make some pretty new pillow cases for your couch.
- Do you have a piece of furniture that needs to be updated? Paint it. Make your own chalk paint and paint it in a pretty color.
- Do you have a canvas you could use for making your own artwork? Or get the kids creative and have them paint big card boxes, big pieces of paper and hang them up in the hall way.
Here are some tips for adding an accent wall in your home.
