Coronavirus: Should you actually wear gloves when shopping?
If you've seen a lot of people wearing gloves while shopping and listened to, like each of us, the authorities sending official messages on how to protect ourselves from the spread of coronavirus, you probably already wonder if you should do that when you go shopping.
Many of the few people we meet these days usually wear either surgical gloves or household gloves, or even crocheted gloves when shopping. But is it true that you are safer if you are wearing shopping gloves?
Experts say that the supermarket is not necessarily among the most dangerous places you can be in these days, and some specialists even go so far as to claim that wearing gloves when shopping is really doing you more harm than good.
First of all, this is because gloves behave exactly like your hands without gloves. The new coronavirus does not reach our bodies through our hands - so this is not where we need to protect ourselves. If we touch a contaminated surface on the drops of another person, and then touch anything else, we can only spread the virus, whether or not we have gloves. Indeed, experts warn, it is very likely that the virus will adhere to a latex surface rather than to human skin. And the skin is immediately washed with soap and water, which you may not have been tempted to do as soon as you enter the house after wearing gloves for shopping, but which is essential for prevention.
And that is precisely the problem with wearing gloves for shopping or anywhere else these days. That they can give you a vague sense of security, which is not at all justified. And if you go to more places and touch more things that you do not necessarily need to touch, just because you feel protected, it is very possible to spread the virus. Just think that if you go shopping with your bare hands, you probably wipe them with a pocket disinfectant or an alcohol wipe before you go, say, and at the pharmacy.
And then, public health experts warn, most of us do not know how to properly remove our gloves, as health professionals would do, much more familiar with these hygiene rituals. Even medical staff have difficulty in accurately following the steps to ensure that they are protected.

This period of isolation you spend with your partner should be like a moment of respite, in which you enjoy each other more.
Even if we miss the active lifestyle we had before, the romantic meetings, the dinners at the restaurant or the surprises our partner prepared, this does not mean that we are no longer part of them in isolation, but rather you and he must adapt to the situation and continue to be romantic with each other.
Despite the fact that it is a crisis and extremely overwhelming, think that being with your partner can help you find your balance and have a much better emotional state.
Here are our recommendations that you can put into practice in isolation with your partner:
1. Cook together
If before you and your partner did not have time to cook, you did not like or used to order food, now you have the opportunity to experience it. Whether you are trying new recipes or prefer to cook some of your favorite foods, think about it as an opportunity to learn new things from one another. Besides, what can be more romantic than a dinner prepared by your partner?
We must admit that karaoke sessions are extremely fun. In this case, what would it be like if you challenged your partner to karaoke? It is an activity that can get you out of the comfort zone and will give you an instant well-being. In addition, from a psychological point of view, it can improve your communication and make you express your emotions much better.
3. Make a puzzle
You may not expect to recommend making a puzzle with your boyfriend, but here it may be an option that you can consider. It is an activity that keeps your mind busy, can relieve stress and, in addition, with a bottle of wine, is the ideal recipe for a perfect evening.
During this period, we are all looking for different ways to manifest our creativity, and painting can be one of them. It is an excellent way to curb your emotions, and if you are not inspired, well, it can come from movies, serials, books, music or even from those around you.
Almost everyone recommends that, in isolation, we relax and do those things that we have postponed. Well, what if you and your partner turned your house into a spa? And do not think that it is very difficult, you need some candles, face masks, skin care products that have a special smell and, let's not forget, extremely comfortable clothes.
6. Try yoga
Yoga is one of the ways that frees us from negative thoughts and helps us to have a balance between mind, body and soul. One of the main actions that yoga has is to reduce stress because it combines both meditation and deep breathing exercises. And if neither you nor your partner have tried so far, well, you can find a lot of examples of yoga exercises for couples.
7. Play board games
If you and your boyfriend were used to board games, then you shouldn't abandon them in isolation. It is an opportunity to give up the Netflix series and believe us, you will not regret it because you will certainly have a lot of fun.
