KB Essentials wants to remind everyone how we can all stay healthy both physically and mentally! It is so crucial that as a community, we come together to combat cold and flu viruses. We have compiled this shortlist of tips on how to stay healthy during this time.
How To Stay Healthy:
1. WASH YOUR HANDS FREQUENTLY
Washing hands with soap and water are the best-proven way to ward off germs. Whenever you are in a public space, use soap and water to clean your hands thoroughly for about 20-30 seconds to ensure that the germs have been killed. Take a look at this graphic put together by the CDC to demonstrate proper handwashing by clicking here.
2. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE HAND SANITIZER READY TO GO
In the event that you are unable to wash your hand’s sanitizer is a great option! You want to make sure it is 70% alcohol so that it takes proper effect. We have developed a moisturizing hand sanitizer containing 70% alcohol available for you all. There are a lot of cheap hand sanitizers that can over dry your hands causing your skin to crack which makes it easier for germs to enter your body, so make sure you are also keeping your hands moisturized!
3. SOCIAL DISTANCING with strangers when in crowded spaces indoors
Social Distancing is an easy method we can use to stop the spread of diseases. Meaning, it is important to keep our distance from strangers when in crowded spaces indoors. In public spaces, people should try their best to stay at least 6ft away from people they are not familiar with in order to stop the spreading of COVID-19 and other cold and flu viruses.
4. CLEAN AND DISINFECT EVERYTHING
Disinfect any public or heavily used surfaces such as doorknobs, counters, tables, computers… anything that is used on a daily basis. Studies have shown that harmful germs and bacteria can be passed on from person to person by touching something someone who is sick has also touched.
5. HELP OTHERS
The only way to overcome this is to come together as a community and look out for one another. Look out for those around you who may not have the same resources you do. We believe that by finding a way to help those struggling more than us is what we NEED to do in order to get through this health and economic hardship. Although we are a small business directly affected by social distancing, we fully support the efforts of reducing the amount of illness in those who are older and those with compromised immune systems. 80% of our customer base is over the age of 55 and usually getting over or suffering from a chronic illness. Right now, the elderly are the most at risk and they need our help. Be the person who looks out for everyone in their community!
6. STAY MENTALLY HEALTHY
The best thing we can all do right now is to stay calm and composed. Take this as a time to catch up on all the things you have been meaning to do but haven’t because life kept seemingly getting in the way. Keep your body and mind healthy during this time!
We will do all in our power to help move through this year in the healthiest way possible and will continue to supply all our wonderful Kb CBD products to support our loyal and new customers during this very challenging time. Stay safe and be well.
