Physical hygiene is commonly passed over in thought. It is not similar taking a shower and brushing your teeth. Physical hygiene can be seen as taking care of your body in ways such as going to the doctor, receiving dental care, getting massages, in addition to properly grooming. "Healthy personal habits can help you ward off illnesses and feel good about yourself" (Orenstein, 2020). This is especially true in the age of COVID-19. The act of washing your hands and wearing a mask could be two of the best health habits to have this year. Beth Orenstein also states that sleep is another aspect of hygiene. She suggests 8 to 10 hours a night and explains that a lack of sleep can compromise your body's natural defenses, your immune system (2020).
