6. Wash Your Hands
Hand washing remains the best prevention against the spread of infections and illnesses in all settings — from your home to your workplace to child care facilities and hospitals. Teach your kids to properly wash their hands at appropriate times; this will ensure that this practice becomes a part of them. Clean hands can stop the spread of germs.
Properly drying your hands is also as important as washing them.
5. Eat a Healthy Diet
Healthy eating begins with a new mindset towards eating, such as diets rich in fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, making sure to cut down on the amount of salt, fat and sugar intakes. An overall healthy diet may reduce the risk of heart diseases and stroke.
Include the drinking of pure, clear water in your diet for shinier hair, younger skin, and a healthier body.
4. Invest in Renewable Energy
