You’re going to keep hearing this, wash your hands for 20 seconds! If you are out and about, find a restroom and wash them. There is an option of sanitizer as well. If it’s a weak batch, add alcohol to it. If you sneeze or cough into your hands, clean them. Also, avoid touching your face, eyes, and nose! We do it without realizing we are doing it. 


Most adults need 7-9 hours of sleep per night, according to WebMD. Some adults, however, can get away with just six, but on the contrary, some need 10 hours. Older adults (ages 65 and older) need 7-8 hours of sleep each day, doctors say. Listen to your body — if you are tired, get sleep. NAPS ARE YOUR FRIEND, ha-ha!


Especially if you will be working from home, you’ve got a ‘break room’ full of snacks and goodies. But think twice about what you are eating. Rather than munching on chips or cookies, how about grapes or nuts? The USDA recommends eating five to nine servings of fruits and vegetables per day. This can be vital to staying healthy. From my personal experience, eating health-conscious helps flush toxic elements out of your system and gives you a lot of energy.


Yes, we know this can be a stressful time for everyone. However, try to manage your stress. It will help you stay healthy. Read a book, Face Time a friend or use this time to prepare an inside garden, etc.


To work out my not sound too ideal right now, but you can still work out at home. You can do squats, push-ups, planks or leg lifts. But most importantly, don’t forget about cardio. Even a walk around your home for 30 minutes will do your body wonders. WebMD states, you need 30 minutes of exercise per day. For those who can’t move around as much, remember there are chair and in-bed exercises that can be done to keep the blood flowing. Will you make a promise to yourself to do this?
