Washing hands with soap and water began as a religious ritual and cultural habit. Much later, it was connected to the reduction of illness and infection by Ignaz Semmelweis. Today, we're well aware of the preventative capabilities of handwashing, but are we using this wellness tool as effectively as we could, and should?
One could argue that nothing we could invest in, has a greater impact on our quality of life, contentment, joy, and fulfilment than our wellness. One of the keys to achieving greater health and wellbeing, is to develop a more holistic approach to the adoption of healthy lifestyle habits. When we focus on various aspects of wellness individually, while still considering the concept more comprehensively, we'll start to feel better, inside and out.
