make time for hygiene

Make Time 4 Hygiene !

You’re hard-pressed for time. So, you rush out ofthe door yet again. You skip the shower and breakfast, and barely run a comb through your dishevelled hair, opting for a dress that has spent most of the night on the floor.

Make time for personal care

It’s ironic how we have time for everything in our lives except for what really counts – our health and wellbeing! Weoften vow to take better care of ourselves,but end up neglecting it. A bit of discipline at specific times of day anda focus on hygiene is all that is required. Here aresome tips that will help you make it a priority and save you precious time in the process:
*. Plan and don’t forget. In spite of all our best intentions, there are times when do forget. Use tools that will remind you of your goals. This could be anything for an alarm in your mobile phone topost-its on your table. It important to recognise the fact thatforgetting is not an option any longer. The monthly CW calendar could be a tool you could use to track your goals.
*. Plan for stocks. It is easy to forget a shavebecause the razor’s not available. Hygiene does require tools and other hygiene materials. Buying that razor while on the wayback home from work does not take too much time. That deodorant bottle that has just got over needs to be replaced. Checking your monthly stock of soaps, shampoos, and other hygiene essentials will not take time, if you do it when you order the monthly home supplies.
*. Schedule visits to the experts. A visit to dentist once in six months is recommended. It’s justof question of 20-30 minutes in six months. A monthly manicure/pedicure not only should help your nails look good, but also prevent dirt from gathering in them. Just remember that the visit is indeed important and skipping it is not conducive to your health/wellbeing. Dandruff, skin/ acne concerns are best handled by experts.
*. Mix pleasure with cleanliness. The mind isnaturally attracted towards things it likes and away from things it does not. Mix pleasure and hygiene. Alot of people are bathroom singers, combining their love of singing with the chore of bathing.

Make time for homecare

Following these tips will ensure that every detail at home is taken care of.
*. Make use of occasions. Take every excuse youcan get to keep the house clean. Diwali cleansing, birthday cleansing, Mother’s daycleansing. Just as excuses work for not keeping the house clean, they work just as well for keeping it clean.
*. You don’t have to do it yourself. India has no problem of finding domestic help. Ask your maid if she would do some extra cleaning, if that’s not on her duty list. She would in fact be happy with the extra income, you would be saved of finding time and it would be good deed forthe day. In fact there are few professional home cleaning firms that visit your homes, say for Diwali, and clean the house for you.
*. Alternate the options. Your house needs to beswept and cleaned. It would take 20 minutesbut you have only 10 minutes in your schedule for that task.
*. Sweep the floor today and cleanse it tomorrow. It is not ideal, but is better thannot having the house worked on for two days.
*. Make it easy to keep clean. It is already difficult to find time for cleanliness. If the tools and materials arenot easy, that’s enough excuse not to do it at times. Don’t give yourself that option. Invest in a vacuum cleaner if you don’t have one. Invest in a drier along with a washing machine, if required.
*. Involve the family in house cleanliness. If cleanliness in on the agenda of only a few members of the family, the house will not stay clean. Make sure your talk about having the house clean with everybody at home. Normally everybody understands. The focus on cleanliness has to come to the fore. Once everybody isparticipating, the time demands on your contribution will come down and you will be able to make time.
*. Reward yourself. It is important that you reward yourself if you keep your date with cleanliness. Go for a movie, or a restaurant. Anything that you love and that will help you do that cleanliness task once again.
