How to Minimize the Spread of Germs and Infection
“Cleanliness is next to Godliness”. It’s something that we all know, germs and bacteria are everywhere. If you looked at your body, clothes, and everyday household items and appliances with a microscope, it would scare you stiff. Now I’m not saying at all that we should walk around wearing masks and gloves, but a few simple lifestyle changes can greatly reduce the spread of germs and bacteria. Many of them may seem common sense, but many of them we don’t think about at all when we should.
Daily bathing is essential. Don’t just assume that as long as you do not smell bad, that you do not need to bathe. Take showers, not baths. As warm and soothing as a bath is, you are literally lying in your own filth. If you truly desire a bath, take a shower first to get your body clean. That will minimize the muck that will be left in the water during a bath. A clean body minimizes the spread of germs and infections.
