Stop, Look, Do Something Good for You

To stay healthy, try this: 1. Stop thinking about yesterday; stop thinking about doing better tomorrow. 2. Look at what you are eating and doing right now--is what you are eating and doing helping you create healthy habits? 3. Do something good for you: eat fruits, veggies, good carbs; exercise.

Chill Out

Lowering the air temperature in your house, especially at night, can help keep you from getting sick. Keeping yourself warm with blankets will not hinder the effects of cooling the air.
