We’ve spent so much time of late obsessing about keeping workspaces clean and safe, and it certainly is right and correct that we do that. But, if you’ve been working from home (and even if you have not), it’s never a bad idea to ensure that how you’re living, is keeping the very best principles of health and safety in mind at home too.
This changes as our families change and as our children get older, with us getting older. So as we’re finally making headway out of winter and pretty soon it’s going to be time for the annual ‘spring-clean’ missions, we figured it is time to check in and start casting a few thoughts towards how that could apply to your family.
Now, we know that we don’t have to mention that word, but…Covid-19 is still with us, and it is still going to be with us for a little while longer yet, so that means keeping our tiny humans as well as ourselves safe and healthy. However, as we’ve all now realized, the latest variant – Omicron, isn’t quite as deadly as everyone in the media wanted us to believe it was it does make sense to continue being sensible.
Then, heading out of winter and into warmers climes means that we also need to spend some time checking our sheds, garages, attics and basements for any unwanted guests that may have taken up residence in the winter.

STAYING SAFE WHEN WORKING FROM HOME
Many small businesses across America have abandoned expensive office space in favor of working from home, and now that the ‘great return’ is slowly starting to happen, many small business owners have decided not to return to office space, but rather have their teams work from their homes instead, and this means that you should have the space that they’re working from, be as compliant and up to date with the same protocols that you would have had working from on office, at home.
This is very important if you still have children living at home, or your elderly parents, as having your staff working from your home, could expose your family to additional risks, however minor. So ensure that you’re practicing not just Covid-safe, protocols – but general good hygiene and sanitization practices besides. Just in case.
AS YOUR FAMILY CHANGES
If you have your parents or in-laws living with you, then how you move about your space at home, along with your kids will change as everyone gets older, but it is still worth ensuring that you and your children know how to engage with elderly relatives, safely and comfortably.
HEALTHY BODY, HEALTHY MIND
Even though the winter is hardly the time that many of us want to be outdoors exercising, it’s still a good idea to do just that, combined with a good diet, and how many of us have rediscovered the joys of cooking at home, is your first line of defense against illness, so take it seriously.
We’re finally moving into territory resembling something ‘normal’ so that means, we get to abandon all of the anxiety and fear, and start embracing the positive and the good, all over again, and it starts – right at home.
