Staying healthy

With the coronavirus making its way through the United States, there is a panic over health concerns.
Various stores, such as Walmart and Giant Eagle, have sold out of hand sanitizers.
Those who have purchased items in bulk have started to sell them for mass amounts on eBay.
As scary as this all seems, it is important to stop and remember all the healthy precautions that can be taken now. There are other sickenesses floating around as well.
Washing your hands frequently is the No. 1 way to avoid getting ill.
An easy way to remember how long you’re supposed to wash is to sing the “Happy Birthday” song as you wash your hands.
It may seem ridiculous, but the timing is on point.
Be sure to prioritize your mental health.
An easy way to do this is to avoid the news for a bit.
It is important to be up to date on what is happening in the world, but stressing yourself out over news about a cold that may or may not even affect you is not worth it.
Please cover your coughs and sneezes. This is an easy way to get others around you sick, and it is just plain rude to cough and sneeze all over those around you.
Be in contact with your doctor if you start to feel symptoms of any kind. It is better to be safe than sorry in certain situations.
Cleaning your surroundings in another important aspect. Whether you’re at home or work, try to maintain a clean living space.
Use disinfecting wipes on anything you touch.
In general, it is important to remain healthy.
Be sure to continue to exercise, eat healthy options and take vitamins.
