Reduce Sickness This Cold Season

As the warmer months come to an end, and school is back in session, family members will begin to get sick. However, by using a few tips, the home will have less viruses and bacteria in it, which will drastically reduce the amount of family members who get sick in the colder months. 

Many people don’t think that cleaning the carpet can help to keep the family well, but how clean a carpet is makes a huge difference in terms of a family’s health. Although viruses may not live as long on carpet fibers as they would on more solid materials, allergens and dust mite fecal matter in carpet can create an environment that can cause family members to get sick more often. When allergens are present in the home, people suffer from allergies. The human body cannot distinguish the difference between an allergen and a virus, and it goes into attack to fight the allergens present in the body. This causes the immune system to become weaker, and catching a cold or other sickness becomes a greater possibility. Regular carpet cleaning in Ajax and Toronto rug cleaning helps to reduce allergens in the home. 

Regular cleaning, such as wiping down door handles and other common areas that people frequently touch reduces the possibilities of transmitting viruses and bacteria to one another. Avoiding all sicknesses is not possible, but with regular cleaning of the home and encouraging good hygiene practices, the family will experience less sicknesses. 

Homeschool Help: Typical Homeschooling Day

Since I don’t have a household helper, I typically wake up around 5:30 am to take our dog Charlie out for a walk. When we come back, I do chores like wash clothes, sweep the floor and prepare breakfast. The kids wake up around 7:00 am and we start off by 8:30 am.

The kids read their own Bibles and we study the Bible together using the curriculm. We then proceed to our next subject. Usually the kids work on their Math separately.  I work with the little one first then go to my older one. We work on 1 lesson a day in Math since we do Math every day. Then they move on to their next subject.  We take a break by 11:00 am and start with a read-aloud by 1 pm. Then we do the remaining subjects until 3:30 pm.

The subjets we do together are Bible, Science, Art and Music . We do History, Math, English, Filipino, and Social Studies separately. There are some subjects that we do daily like Bible and Math while the other subject gets done twice or thrice a week.

After 3:30 pm, the kids usually play or read books or do little projects. There are days that there are ballet classes, football training and once a week Bible study meeting so our schedules are tweaked on those days.

We don’t follow a very rigid schedule but we have a daily subject guide for us to follow.
