Here’s How To Safeguard Your Family’s Health


Moms often have a lot on their minds, and one thing that is never far from their thoughts is their family’s health and well-being. Of course, making sure that your family’s health stays is in tip-top condition is an ongoing process! Luckily, you will find some advice and information about the sort of things that can help you do this in the post below.

Keep a clean home

OK, so there is a bit of confusion about whether having a super clean home is right for your family’s health or not. After all, you don’t want to expose them to unnecessary contaminants such as black mold, or vermin feces that can occur in the home. Particularly, as these can exacerbate previous medical conditions like asthma, and even be the cause of some nasty diseases.



However, there is also the view that living in too sterile an environment is bad for your family. After all, they need some exposure to germs, to build resistance to them that their bodies need, and as many cleaning products are full of harsh chemical coating every surface in the home with these can be less than productive in terms of health.

With this in mind, keeping a clean home to preserve the health of your family is something that needs to be done with a balanced attitude. What this means is that major health risks can be avoided, but over the top sterility is also not ideal.

Seek medical advice

While we are lucky enough to have much health and medical information at our fingertips due to the internet, it doesn’t mean that we are qualified to make a diagnosis or administer treatments without professional medical advice. In fact, sometimes using Dr. Google can cause more harm than good, especially regarding your family’s stress levels. That is why it is important to go to the right medical professional for the issues you are concerned about as soon as possible.



Although, it is important to remember that even medical personnel get things wrong sometimes too. That is why you need to remember that there are legal professionals like the Tittle and Perlmuter Law Firm that can help you if you think you have been a victim of malpractice. Also, remember that if you are unsure about any procedure, you do have the right to refuse it, as well as ask for a second opinion on your case.

Encourage a healthy lifestyle

Lastly, a major way of safeguarding your family’s health is to get them into good habits from the beginning. To do this, it’s important that you realize how much sway as a role model you have on their behavior.

What this means is that you need to model healthy cooking and eating, regular exercise and emotional coping strategies for your children as they grow up. Then they will have an excellent and stable foundation on which to build their adult health and wellbeing.  That is one of the most valuable gifts that you can give them. Preventing and minimizing health issues is far preferable than having to treat them once they have occurred.

    1. I can relate to that. I have a shoulder injury from 2015 that I need to see a doctor about, but I have no insurance and just know it will cost an arm and leg, so I deal with it.

  1. I try to do these things! Luckily we don’t get sick too often. I think we just have good genetics. Also, I don’t freak out over germs, so I think that helps too.

    1. You know you make a point there. I used to freak out over germs with my first child and he used to get sick all the time. My second child went around licking trash can lids at Disneyland and he rarely gets sick. True story! I think a built up immune system is one that has to be tested from time to time. It’s still good to be cleanly.

  2. Staying healthy as a family is definitely a group effort. When they were younger, I had to really teach my kids the importance of handwashing and to avoid putting their hands in their mouths (especially when we were not at home).

  3. These are really great tips. I’m trying to make sure the grand kids eat healthier which is not always easy. My kids loved healthy foods, them, not so much. I’ll use your tips to help safeguard all of our health.

  4. This is all graded vice and we definitely follow most of this. In the spring time I open everything up there at the house and clean it from top to bottom. I want to get rid of all the winter yuck!

  5. Having a healthy lifestyle is so important in keeping your family healthy. Tons of fruit and veggies, exercise, and enough sleep are key things that I strive for when taking care of my boys.

  6. Love these tips! They are all so true. Keeping a healthy lifestyle is very important especially having so many kids it’s my top priority!

  7. This information is so important. I think sometimes we forget how not living a healthy lifestyle really plays a major role with our health.

  8. Keeping your home clean saves you from things being able to grow or hide down in cluttered areas. It’s pretty easy for things to pile up in a messy home and that allows things to foster and grow, no thank you!

  9. Very good tips for everyone who would like to live a healthier life free from germs and viruses. I always make sure that the house is clean and that we eat healthy!

  10. Since going plant-based, I have been eating much healthier and this has rubbed off on my family. We are also trying to be more active with regular exercise!

  11. You’ve listed some good tips! It is so important to lead by example, our littles are watching and learning from us.
