Remove Your Hands From Your Face to Stay Healthy
I bet you’re touching your face right now. You might have your chin propped in your hand, a fingernail between your teeth, or rubbing eyes and noses… Those are habits we need to break--like yesterday!

On average, people touch their faces about 16 times an hour. Some people less, others as many as 100 touches per hour. Droplets that come from our mouths, noses and eyes end up on surfaces. When we touch those surfaces, we bring them back to our mouths, noses, and eyes. That's how transmission can occur.

Using tissues and having them on hand is always a good idea. Use them instead of your hand to open public doors, hold onto shopping carts, wipe your eyes, mouths, and noses. Flu germs don't penetrate our skin. They need to invade our eyes, noses or mouths which are usually put there by our own hands.

If we stay away from our faces, we eliminate a lot of the risk. [link to www.ksl.com]



Tips for Keeping hands away from face:

1. Keep your hands busy, I.e., using a stress ball or something else.

2. Wear Clean Gloves. It works.

3. Reward yourself. Set a goal and reward yourself.

4. Get your household members involved. Ask them to monitor you and let you know.

5. Don't give up. Always try again if you fall off. Perseverance plays a big role in dumping any habit.

BONUS: The “right” way to wash hands with soap and water:
1. Wet your hands with clean running water and apply soap. Use warm water if it is available.
2. Rub hands together to make a lather and scrub all surfaces.
3. Continue rubbing hands for 15 seconds.
4. Rinse hands well under running water.
5. Dry your hands using a paper towel or air dryer. If possible, use your paper towel to turn off the faucet.

I chew my toenails off, and eat dead skin off my calluses. I think touching my face is the least of my problems.

Nah. I have much better simpler and better solution...

Vitamin D at the rate of 1000 IU for every 25lbs of bodyweight.

Ever wonder why we tend to get sick more often during the winter compared to summer? We get vitamin D from the sun but we have to work. Kids have school for 9 months. Our lazy lifestyle keeps us inside much more than ever.

Re: Remove Your Hands From Your Face to Stay Healthy
Uh...some of that is a little overboard

opening doors with tissues?!

going a little OCD like Howard Hughes are we????

if you are never exposed to bacteria and germs, you'll never develop natural resistance and so, your whole plan of avoiding germ contact will backfire and you'll be sicker than ever!

You should avoid air dryers in public restrooms. Use the paper towels.

OP do you do every thing the mainstream media tells you? Perhaps we should wear face masks to keep from breathing in germs from the air as well?

Not BS (at least after the vaccine part?!?)

People smart enough to not touch their face after shaking hands, is smart enough to NOT be getting the flu shot.





Thanks OP.

Simple things like diet and exercise can do amazing things too.



For the shills:

small list of healing vegetables:

Garlic
Onion
Carrot
Potato
Herbs
filtered water

you get the idea.

Don't believe me google natural healing and immune defense.

I do it all the time. It makes no sense to wash your hands then grab a door knob handled by all the people who did NOT wash their hands. I open the door and drop the tissue in nearest receptacle.
