Tips for staying clean and healthy during coronavirus

Tips for staying clean and healthy during coronavirus

These days, you may feel overwhelmed with information about the novel coronavirus. It’s important we don’t let this outbreak take over every respect of our lives, and instead, keep calm and stay healthy. This is also how we can protect the people around us.

Below are some tips that can help us stay healthy in any circumstance. They are valid for all times and can also protect us from regular flu or other viruses and bacteria. This is why they must become part of our lifestyle, even after the Covid-19 outbreak is over.

Hygiene is important

  • Wash your hand thoroughly with soap and water for 20 seconds and, if possible
  • clean your hands with hand sanitizers that contain above 60% alcohol
  • Make sure to keep a disinfectant handy, as well as tissue to quickly disinfect your surroundings
  • Do not touch your nose, mouth, or eyes with unwashed hands.
  • Sneeze and cough into your elbow and then clean your hands
  • Don’t forget to clean the surfaces you are frequently in contact with

Keep your vehicle clean

For truck drivers who are still working, for anyone who drives to buy groceries, or for those preparing for a move, maintaining a vehicle’s interior clean is very important. Here is how to do it:

  • Disinfect all touch-points of your car before and after driving. These are mainly handles, steering wheel, touch screens, gear lever. Avoid having someone else drive the car afterward.
  • Any surface carries a risk of spreading the virus, so you should make sure to wipe and clean as much as possible. Wet towels or a cloth with alcohol on it are good cleaning tools in this case.
  • If you need to refuel your car, wear gloves and be very cautious not to touch your face while wearing them. Take them off cautiously once you’re done, dispose of the gloves, clean the fuel filler cap and your hands as well.
  • Avoid driving in busy areas or at busy times. However, if you can’t avoid it, keep your windows shut.

Frequently clean your mobile phone

We may keep our hands clean and practice social distancing. However, we shouldn’t forget about our digital gadgets like cellphones, tablets, or computers.

Below is an example of how you can clean your phone:

  • Apple has instructed its users to use “a 70 percent isopropyl alcohol wipe or Clorox Disinfecting Wipes” to clean the display, keyboard, or other exterior surfaces. However, make sure not to get moisture into phone openings.
  • Samsung also allows the usage of alcohol-based cleaners. However, you need to make sure to wet a soft cloth first, and not the screen directly with the alcohol.
  • Don’t forget to clean your phone case. Take it out first, wipe it with an anti-bacterial wet towel (again minimum 60% alcohol), and then wait for it to dry before reattaching it to your phone.

Eat healthy

Paying attention to your eating habits is especially important now for two main reasons:

  • Eating a balanced diet will strengthen your immune system to better fight Covid-19 or any type of virus. Hence, Vitamin C, D, and other nutrients found in yogurt or meat should be part of your meals.
  • It is easy to indulge in overeating while spending most of the time staying and working from home. Therefore, try to set up times for your meals and replace heavy snacks with fresh fruit.

Do not neglect your mental health

Last but not least, do your best to stay positive and take care of your mental health. Some practical tips here include:

  • home aerobics
  • yoga practice
  • read an interesting book
  • watch a comedy
  • spend time talking to your loved ones
  • avoid listening non-stop to Covid-related news

All in all, remember that this situation will pass. For now, we can focus on staying healthy and avoid social contacts to flatten the Covid-19 spread curve.

Looking for a logistics company, to ship my car, from California to Illinois,my first search, then Corsia showed up, skeptical. Call and a very friendly secretary: Elena. She guided me through, I scheduled and as she explained, all when smooth as scheduled Very happy I did the right choice. I'll recommend this great Company to anyone that is thinking to relocate a vehicle. Thanks Corsia logistics for your honesty and professionalism!

Corsia was highly recommended by a friend in the automobile industry. We needed to transport a cargo van from Seattle to Florida. We contacted Corsia who quickly arranged transport within just a few days. Communication was outstanding! Just a few email confirmations and we were all set. Mike was great and arrived right on time and delivered to Florida on schedule. Tip-avoid the hornets nest of auto brokers on line and just contact Corsia for a truly great experience!

Corsia has been amazing. Their prices are really competitive but more importantly their customer service has been 5-Star. Elena followed up with me every step of the way, making sure there was no miscommunication between me & the driver. We are using them to ship a 2nd vehicle & would not hesitate to use them again!

I have recently used Corsia for long time family car with sentimental value that was moved I have recently used Corsia for shipment of my vehicle from Oregon to Arizona by recommendation from other family member who also used Corsia in the past. I am very pleased on the service and the communication throughout shipment. Ken was my direct contact and kept me informed along the move The car was picked up and delivered as communicated. I did use a enclosed mover and the driver was also clean cut professional and treated car as his own. I would definitely recommend Corsia again with the experience I have had. Thank you. T

Corsia rep (Elena) was very proactive. Helped ship a car from CA to GA. She checked in with me via email quote and several phone calls to find me the best possible quote for the fastest available service. After several communications, Corsia was able to schedule a vehicle pickup the next day. The driver communicated well, and the vehicle arrived in final destination faster than we expected in perfect condition. I highly recommend using Corsia's reliable, efficient service.

Clean, efficient, wonderful

Thanks, Corsia! Pickup was so clean, efficient, and wonderful -- my only recommendation is to make sure you schedule it during the day so you can fully review the car in the daylight. Drop off was equally wonderful, and the whole trip went down without a hitch (pun intended!). Seriously, Corsia delivered my Jeep from CT to California with no issues or bumps in the road!

Truly positive experience

Corsia Memphis to LA, mid-size SUV. I looked at 4 different companies amd Corsia was the most responsive of them. While being responsive, they were not unduly aggressive: when I indicated that I need to wait a month before making a decision they stopped contacting me and only came back with a reminder when I really needed it. Once I decided to engage Corsia they found me a transport within two days and the car was delivered (from Memphis to LA) in another two days. I had a truly positive experience.

Working with Corsia Logistics was a great experience. Working with Corsia Logistics was wonderful. They were able to find a driver right away to transport our car. They were in constant communication as to when the car was getting picked up and dropped off. The driver also communicated with me as to when he would arrive. I would highly recommend Corsia Logistics.

Excellent Organization

Corsia was an excellent company to work with while I transferred my car across the US. A friend of mine suggested I use them as they had been very organized and trustworthy with her own car. I researched a few different place but decided to go with Corsia and I'm so glad I did! Any questions I had throughout the process they answered quickly and clearly. I would definitely use them again in the future and recommend them for others to use.
