Your health is in your hands: Take care of yourself!

Now’s the perfect time to remember everything we learned in preschool about health:

  • 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.

Back to Health Basics:

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.
