This might be too much for some of us, but these are ways to protect ourselves during the winter period from a lot of bacterias and promote good health. When it gets cold what comes to our minds is how to cover up wearing jackets and boots. The hygiene that is needed in winter is a lot, but I will start by sharing some major mistakes we need to avoid.
1.Coat rack: A lot of people do not have the habit of washing winter jackets due to its thickness and sometimes the bacteria that inhabits inside some jackets you don't want to know. When hanging your jacket in a restaurant or public place, make sure your coat or jacket is hanged on one separate hanger. There are people with bad body odor and the smell can be transferred to your jacket if kept together for a long time. Also, bed bugs can transfer from one person to the other by this means .
2. Doors: I wrote a post on personal guide to excellent hygiene which is very important for everyone to follow. Do not open any door with looking at the handle. Winter is a period when people have running nose, cough and sneeze a lot due to the change in temperature and harsh weather condition. This help to avoid touching any person's mess by mistake. Use your gloves to open the door or carry along a spare gloves for this. I am talking out of experience, I didn't touch the mess but I wasn't myself when I got home.
3. Snow eating: For those who are in the habit of eating snow/licking snow you can do it in a better way. Do not just pick snow from any area because no one was matched on it, saliva does leave it's Mark on snow, you might end up taking in saliva or any bacteria. if you want to eat snow, do yourself well but putting a clean bow outside your window when it starts snowing and get clean and neat snow.
4 Do not start a relationship because it is winter. Over the years I have heard sayings like, I can't be alone it's winter... ladies and gentlemen if you start a winter relationship what about summer? don't be used as the seasons body/bed warmer.
5. Keep fit. In my previous post I explained a lot about winter fitness, you can read more here.
