7 Health Practices to Keep After the Covid-19 Lockdown

Ok, so like millions around the world, I genuinely thought I was washing my hands effectively, until a video showed how to and I honestly had to wonder how I’d been living for so long ignorant of this simple health practice!

It was shocking yes to realize there were steps I was missing, but I was super happy to learn and I will never ever, knock the use of sanitiser ever again, especially after going through this covid-19 lockdown.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), here are the simple steps to effective hand washing to stop the spread of germs!

Follow these five steps every time.

  1. Wet your hands with clean, running water (warm or cold), turn off the tap, and apply soap.
  2. Lather your hands by rubbing them together with the soap. Lather the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails.
  3. Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds. Need a timer? Hum the “Happy Birthday” song from beginning to end twice.
  4. Rinse your hands well under clean, running water.
  5. Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry them.

  1. My sister & I have been making our own hand sanitizer for a few years now. We started spraying down our shopping carts every time we went shopping about two years ago when our mom contracted E.Coli and her doctor said dirty shopping carts was the likely culprit. People would look at us like we were crazy, but I guess we look pretty sane now. 🙂

  2. Even after this lock down is over, I think I will still be wearing a mask and having hand sanitizer in my pocket. It just made me so paranoid that it is like second nature for me now. I will also strive to eat healthy to keep my immune system at its best.

  3. Washing hands, Santitizin, I had been doing since long before covid-19, I wont give them up. I am an abievert, plus I love staying alone so social distancing I’ll continue. I had always been an insomniac and now that I am with family, goodbye sleep. Mask I really dont plan on giving up ever.

  4. I’m wearing my mask all the time, in Italy it’s the norm and we’ve all gotten used to it. I was OCD about washing hands regularly before lockdown!
