“Practicing good personal hygiene is important for keeping the body healthy and clean.

Good personal hygiene involves keeping all parts of the external body clean and healthy. It’s important for maintaining both physical and mental health.”

Daily cleaning and care help to keep us healthy, strong, and happy. Knowing what to do and what not to do will help to keep us on track.

We enjoy having fun in the tub, and it’s just a small part of our daily “dos and don’ts” of foot care. Today is bath day … hooray, hooray! We will crawl into that soapy deliciousness right after our morning diabetic routine of checking our blood sugar and taking the necessary medications and insulin.

“Do you remember when I used to get so worked up about the injection?” asks Roger. “It’s simple and just like taking my vitamins now. Necessary and easy-peasy.”

Even the smallest decisions we make are made with the intention of being good diabetics and looking after our health. As Roger surfaces above the bubbles, he looks at me and says, “Bubbles bring me so much joy. Why can’t we just stay in the tub all day long?”

I respond with a snicker and a “Chop chop, buddy. We have things to do today!”

After our bath, we grab our journal and a pen and then sit down to eat breakfast and plan our day. Wise choices are on the table today and every day.

“For people with poor personal hygiene, the body provides an ideal environment for germs to grow, leaving it vulnerable to infection.

On a social level, people may avoid a person with poor personal hygiene, which may result in isolation and loneliness."
