Taking care of ourselves, our homes and our loved ones.
As Australia transcends into lockdown following the precedents set by many other countries around the world, it’s important to keep our cool and take good care of ourselves. These cleaning recommendations are for you.
So how can we boost our immune system?
Before looking into the many ways we can boost our immune system, we need to firstly eliminate as best we can, those things that are harmful to our bodies, and which have a negative impact on our resilience in the face of microscopic viruses.
We spend most of our time in our homes and now we will be spending extended periods there. So the first step is to make our home as healthy as we can, and this means removing the dust, contaminants and impurities that have accumulated for many years.
This article here will guide you in how to do this; How those things we can’t see can hurt us.
These viruses are so small that really no filtration system can confidently capture them. But the other stuff in dust compromises our immune system, and that is the point here. To get our home and our bodies so healthy that our immune system is more effective in fighting against anything that comes our way; during this time or the next one. Come what may.

The next step is disinfectant.
It’s important to note that we need to use a non-toxic approach here when considering these cleaning recommendations. This is because just going and splashing bleach around and/or other unknown toxic products can be counterintuitive. The toxins contained in these products can have a negative impact on our immune system.
In fact, now’s the time to throw out any product that has an ingredient in it you can’t pronounce. Choose only non-toxic disinfectants and focus on those areas of the home that receive the most contact especially; the door handles, cupboards, taps, basins and toilets. Use warm water liberally with a scourer, and scrub rather than dry wipe. Wash your hands regularly and liberally.
The next issue is stress.
People can talk black and blue about not being stressed, but really we just need to go back to sound timeless logic. Go to bed nice and early. No excitement in the lead up to bedtime from TV or social media. Exercise. Eat good food. Drink loads of water. Avoid sugar and alcohol. Take a bath if you can. Treat yourself like someone you’re responsible to care for. Choose to be around and/or engage with positive people. Avoid negative energies. This time can be a catalyst for an amazing change of pace and lifestyle.
If we are confined to the inside of our homes for any period of time, let’s make the most of it. Let’s prepare the house to be a haven that makes us feel good. There are those things outside of our control and those things we can control. To waste energy on those things we can’t control will actually impact those things we can. Discerning the difference right now is the key.
