“Wash your hands.” As a mom of four kids, this has always been a mantra. After playing outside. Before eating. After using the toilet. Before cooking or baking with me in the kitchen. ALL. THE. TIME. If you are a momma, you know how many times you tell the kids to wash their hands. If you are a momma, you also know how many times when the kids come back faster than expected, you will also ask the question, “Did you use soap?” Now, more than ever, we are teaching the next generation, just how very important it is, to wash their hands with soap, to reduce the risk of transmitting COVID19 and other viruses. And because SM Supermalls, together with SM Cares, has partnered with Safeguard Philippines, they have made it even easier for mall goers to disinfect their hands with the new #SafeHandsAtSM campaign.
Mindfulness is a practice
Perhaps, this was supposed to be a reminder for all of us. What if all of the uncertain circumstances that have brought us to more than 100 days in quarantine, and businesses, malls, and restaurants, slowly opening up as we shift to a new way of living is because we are supposed to change the way we live. Maybe, this also means that even the most mundane things that we do, we will now become so much more mindful.
I can certainly say that being in quarantine for so long has made me more mindful of so many things. Blessings, challenges, family, food, managing time…all of it…so MUCH MORE MINDFUL…
Practice Makes Perfect
Well, if we are all being taught to be more mindful, we cannot exclude something as simple as washing our hands. This is the time when we can fully commit to teaching our kids the proper way to wash our hands, and what better way to do this, than with an antibacterial soap that kills 99% of germs!
Collaborating for a Healthy Cause
“As part of the #SafeHandsAtSM campaign, Safeguard has made its liquid hand soap available in restrooms of all SM malls across the country to help the community fight the spread of disease-causing germs. Information materials on the five steps of hand washing will also be deployed in restrooms and in high traffic areas to remind customers in the malls.”
