Going through life without encountering foreign bacteria is not possible. Foreign cellular invaders are absolutely everywhere, so coming face to face with them is inevitable.
However, this doesn’t mean that we can’t do our very best to stop the spread of this bacteria.
In a time of such vehement cries for taking care of our immune systems, we wanted to send you a friendly reminder of the ways bacteria are most likely spread in your home.
Stop touching your face, folks!
The most common way for germs to travel from point A to point B is on the human body. How do they get onto our bodies? Our hands.
Touch is one of our key senses to understanding the world around us. Oftentimes we don’t even realize when we’re touching our faces, or absent-mindedly playing with an object. It’s a natural response we don’t think about.
As a result, our hands are always coming into contact with foreign surfaces and their bacteria. We then wander off and bring the bacteria with us. We touch something else, and now the germs are on that as well.
Trying to eliminate touch is impossible. What we can strive for is to be aware of what we’re touching. If we know our hands are often covered in foreign bacteria, then do your best to not touch your face.
Bacteria can enter your body through your nose or mouth, so don’t give them any help accessing those entrances!
Wash your hands before touching your food!
We’re all adamant that we want whomever is cooking our food to wash their hands before they touch it. However, we have trouble maintaining the same level of diligence with ourselves.
We assume that the person we don’t know in the restaurant kitchen could be dirty, and that we are completely clean.
Well, germs travelling on food is one of the most common ways for diseases to spread.
When you get home from a shopping trip, you should make sure you are washing all produce and disinfecting any packaging.
Sitting in a supermarket, there are plenty of bacteria our food can come into contact with everyday. You don’t want to bring that home and then place it in a pantry or refrigerator where it can spread to other goods.
Keep your food and its storage areas clean to limit the spread of germs.
Cuddling with your pet may be cozy, but be aware of potential health risks!
We all love to pet and cuddle our animal friends, but it is important to be cognizant of how easily germs can be transferred from them to us.
Many domesticated animals spend a lot of time outside, and can bring foreign bacteria back into the home on their coat.
Make sure you are frequently bathing your pet, and that you wipe their paws before they come back inside!
Get the whole family on the same page, especially children.
In order to keep germs at bay, you need everyone in your home pulling in the same direction.
Your whole family needs to be engaged when it comes to keeping your home clean. This is especially important when you have children in the house.
Due to their youth and consequent naïveté, it is far more likely for children to carry germs into the house than others.
Make sure you take the time to teach your children why keeping bacteria away is important, and how to keep themselves clean when playing outside or with others.
