PERSONAL HYGIENE AND PRACTICES

Physical Health and Hygiene

Hygiene means health and healthful living. Good health means well balances condition of body and mind which enables one to perform all functions normally. The rules of hygiene vary with the requirement of each individual, and each person adapts what is needed from the general rules and formulates a code of rules for personal hygiene. The rules cover all consideration of personal characteristics including but not limited to:

1. Cleanliness – daily bath

2. Oral hygiene – care of mouth and teeth

3. Diet – including weight control

4. Posture – walking, standing, sitting

5. Clothing – good quality which can be kept fresh and crisp by frequent laundering

6. Relaxation – mental and physical exertion, sufficient time for rest.

Personal Hygiene Checklist

1. Daily bath and deodorant.

2. Oral hygiene- brushing of teeth and mouthwash

3. Diet weight control

4. Hairstyle

5. Clothes- uniform and shoes should be properly fitted

6. Facial make-up – wear appropriate cosmetics

7. Posture

8. Hands must be cleaned and fingernails cut or trimmed short

9. Avoid dangling jewelry

10. Be relaxed

Keeping oneself in good health makes one feel optimistic and everyday activities tend to run smoothly. On the contrary, when one is sick, it almost seems that life is not worth living. Poor health handicaps you in all your enterprises, limits your achievements and robs you on the enjoyment of living.

Rules of Health

1. Get sufficient exercise.

2. Provide for an adequate amount of sleep.

3. Maintain good habits of eating

4. Cultivate personal neatness.

Rules in Taking Food

1. Avoid sweets like candy and pastry.

2. Cultivate a desire for the natural flavors than to choose artificially seasoned foods.

PERSONAL NEATNESS OR GOOD GROOMING

  1. Keep your fingernails short and clean.
  2. When cutting your toe nails, do it straight across.
