A new way to wash your hands

I'm sure you've heard by now, that washing your hands with soap and water is one of the best ways to protect yourself against the COVID-19 virus.

It's really quite simple isn't it...

Level1: Know when to wash your hands. As soon as you get home, before you leave the house, before preparing food, before eating food, after using the toilet, after touching things...just all the time okay!

Level 2: Scrub for 20 seconds..

Level 3: Turn the faucet off without touching it again.

You can follow the UK government advice and sing happy birthday twice, or you can take this opportunity to practise gratitude. It is a great way to reflect and it can bring joy to even the simplest of things.

Lucas and I have gotten into the habit of saying five things we are thankful for while washing our hands.

For example:

I'm thankful for eyesight, I'm thankful for soap, I'm thankful for clean water, I'm thankful for the invention of the toilet, I'm thankful for cotton.

You get the gist...

Take your time, try to come up with something new each session. This gets harder of course once you've washed your hands for the 5th time that day, but try naming things that you use daily, that make your life easier and that are often taken for granted.

You will not only become an expert at washing your hands, but you will become more conscious each time you magnify even the smallest pleasures in life.✨
