Happy Wellfie Wednesday! Welcome back! This week is brought to you by Patrick (@TheFuelPhysio). And just like that, summer is coming to an end and schools are starting up again.
I wanted to use the time this week to emphasize the importance of hand washing! Not the fanciest of topics, but needed, especially has the kiddos head to new environments and start interacting with more and more people. Though, remember hand washing is applicable to every single people, I just think it's a healthy behavior that should be taught young.
The Center for Disease Control emphasizes hand washing as one of the most important steps in preventing the spread of germs and infectious disease, reducing the risk of sickness. But it's important to note that for this to be successful, when and how you wash your hands becomes important. Check out the image below for more detail, including the steps on how to appropriately wash your hands. And know that it's friction that helps kill germs, so scrubbing time is a must!
Be sure to keep washing those hands and teaching your children this important healthy behavior. Thanks for all of the support, be sure to post your pictures this week and tag the WW crew members in your post (@TheFuelPhysio, @Eric_in_AmERICa, @AaronPerezPT, @DianaKlatt) and keep the wave of healthy change going!
