Being mindful of touching your face, eyes, nose and mouth can help eliminate entry of germs into your body. Most of us don't realize how much we have our hands on our face and near our mouths. Here's a challenge: Count how many times you rub your eyes or nose, touch your face or put things into your mouth in one hour. You'll be surprised how much touching of the hair, face and mouth you do each day. We all touch handrails, phones, steering wheels and sinks, etc., which are harbingers of germs, and then touch our faces or put food in our mouths without washing our hands.
