Have You Been Around People and Feel Unclean?

First of all this is not based on scientific evidence. It’s something I started doing because it just makes common sense and it makes my clothes smell great and it gives me a great sense of comfort. This in no way takes the place of laundering clothes, washing hands and social distancing. But it might make you feel better if someone not wearing a mask sneezed or coughed around you. Be advised this has not been tested and not sure what the outcome will be on clothes.

What you need to make:

  • Spray Bottle (you can use any old body spray bottle) can be anywhere from 2-8 ounce. Remember you have to carry around with you so you don’t want something too big to weigh you down
  • alcohol (may use vodka if you don’t have alcohol)
  • essential oil (lavender, peppermint, tea tree, lemon) You can use whatever kind of essential oil you have but these listed are cleansing. The alcohol should clean virus and the essential oil is like icing on the cake.

How to Make?

  • Pour alcohol in spray bottle not all the way to the top.
  • add essential oil . It’s hard to say how much to add because I’m not sure what size bottle you’re using. But I’m not scientific about it. Since it’s going on your clothes it’s not as critical as if you are putting on skin. Use your common sense. I add until I can smell the essential oils. If you can’t smell it after spraying then you need to add more essential oils. A little goes a long way. Start with a few drops and add accordingly..
  • Put lid on and spray

How to Use?

The uses are endless. But say you just went to the store and you are wearing mask and eye protection and maybe face shield. But after you get outside and before you get in your car, you can spray it all over. Start with spraying all around you and walking into mist. Spray on front and back of body and don’t forget shoes.

If you work and after you get to your desk, spray everywhere. Let it just evaporate. If you want to clean, go ahead but justspraying on there should do something. I would spray around public bathrooms.

Not sure if this works

But it sure does smell good and unless you have allergies, it should be harmless. But use at your own risk. And whether or not this actually does anything remains to be seen but it sure does make me feel better and at this point, that’s all that matters.

Thanks for keeping it clean. Doesn’t it just feel better when things smell fresh and clean? Make this and spray it everywhere. If you walk into an area and it smells gross get away as fast as you can (why) because those particles entered your nose in order to smell. So that’s why you don’t want to be around stinky smells. Spray that and then go in. Another nice thing you can do is spray this in your mask and then put on because some face masks just don’t smell so good. But don’t huff the hand spray. Let it air out before you put on.

If you dine out spray this before you enter any room to let anything settle down and wipe off table with wipes and stay home if you’re sick.

THIS IS WHAT YOU CALL COMMON SENSE BUT NOT EVALUATED BY ANYONE….Maybe you have something that works just as good or better. Thanks for using and share this with those you care about or share your own concoction. This is about helping each other out during this time. Let’s just relax and keep it clean and social distance, wear masks and wash your hands. Respect people and wear a mask or stay away from them. RESPECT EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!! OK Bye

How To Be Strong In Body..

But depending on your current health condition, this is going to determine what kind of exercise you do. But the main thing is to start moving around and start walking, stretching and getting your heart rate up. If you have no concept of exercise or maybe are recovering from an injury then you really want to start out very slowly. Pilates is a great!! But it has to be a gentle class. Then once you get those principals down you can integrate those activities into your daily life.

For example if you have to type or be on your laptop, as you type you can ensure that you sit up straight. If you really want to go gangster with it you can engage your abs. So basically you have to engage your core when you do your daily living activities. If you are lifting, use your legs. These are just examples of what you can do. But no matter what you do start out slow and start to become aware of how the body actually moves.

How To Be Strong in Your Mind

A little coloring can take away stress.

There are many ways to be strong in your mind. Reading, puzzles and music are great ways to have a strong mind. You have to use your brain in different ways. This means that you try to do different things basically. Use your non dominant hand to brush your teeth, Walk a different route. Just do something different.

This one is really tricky. Nobody can tell you how to be strong in spirit. It’s something you have to figure out for yourself. I can tell you how I do it but then you would find a reason why my way is the wrong way. But I know what works for me. I think the most important thing to do is to have an attitude of actually wanting to connect with your higher power. You must have the intention that you want to connect.

Often times this comes about during times of great grief. When you lose a loved one or have tragedy. When people have nowhere else to go then they will turn to God. I think a good old fashioned praying on your knees is a good thing. There’s nothing wrong with it. Pull out that bible and crack it open. Just start to ponder how Jesus is working in your life.

Meditation and prayer along with yoga are also a great way to connect with your higher power.

So now you have a basic concept of how to be strong in your Mind, Body and Spirit. It’s not easy or difficult. You just have to try. Just try to have fun more than anything and remember that your life is whatever you chose to focus on.
