HAND WASHING

                                                       

Believe it or not, hand washing is very, very, very important.  Yes, we carry hand sanitizer and it is posted in various places in the stores, offices, etc.  Hand sanitizer  is only a “temporary fix”, you should still wash your hands with soap and water as soon as you can.

 

Most contamination occurs from hand to mouth.  Most surfaces harbor germs anywhere from 3 to 72 hours (like the cold and flu viruses) or sometimes as long as 7 days.  When you wash your hands you should suds them for up to 20 seconds or the happy birthday song 2 times then rinse your hands.  Washing your hands is essential to keeping you healthy.

CHANGING SEASONS

FALL IS HERE AND WINTER  IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER!

With the change in the weather you may notice it differs weekly, sometimes day to day.  Dress according to the day, as these constant changes can bring about illnesses that you don’t want with the up and coming holidays.  Help yourself by doing some of the following:  a glass of orange juice in the morning for your vitamin c; eat breakfast, or for those who don’t “do” breakfast, something as simple as a bagel and a piece of fruit or a breakfast bar.  Have a cup of green tea at some point in the day.  Eat some vegetables, they are very important as they give you many vitamins and help with various health issues.

TAKE CARE OF YOUR YOURSELF AND ENJOY YOUR HOLIDAYS!!!!!!!
