Why Personal Cleanliness is Important

6/10/10 Green Herbal Remedies

Maintaining proper hygiene is considered to be the first step towards living ahealthy life. If one follows proper hygienic habits, the chances of he becoming ill are very less. Having a command over hygiene is a difficult task and depends a lot on personal cleanliness. If one person in a house has good cleanliness habits, then he can teach the rest of the family members about the same and maintain proper hygiene in the house.

Now, personal cleanliness is not only related to using the best soaps or wearing properly washed clothes. It is much more than that. Also, the definition of personal cleanliness can vary amongst people. Imagine, a mother tells her kid to wash his hands and face before eating anything. Now the kid might think that merely rubbing his hands under the tap water would clean them up. But that is not true, and hence the mother would ask the child to make use of soap and properly clean the hands.

The example discussed above tells us that one would take so much care of maintaining cleanliness because it has many benefits. Firstly, a person with clean habits will always stay fit and fine. The environment we live in is so polluted that everywhere there are germs, dirt and bacteria which can cause infections. Practicing clean habits will not only help in preventing infections to you but also to those around you. And following cleanliness is much easier and cost effective option than to suffer from a disease and spend lot of dollars for the treatment.

It is evident that cleanliness standards are not the same everywhere. And therefore everyone should practice personal cleanliness depending upon their age, geographic location and habits. Remember, that cleanliness is not merely a pleasant outward appearance. It is a state of a person’s mind that involves his habits, values, morals and beliefs. Therefore it is important for everyone to follow proper hygienic habits in the lifestyle to keep themselves as well as others healthy and happy.
