It’s a new year, and we’re halfway through winter. Stay healthy and happy with these three winter wellness tips:
1. Get a flu shot if you haven’t already this season. The season usually continues through April, so there’s still plenty of time.
2. Bundle up and get outside. Remember to layer, cover your head and hands and wear warm shoes that provide traction on snow and ice. Walk cautiously when you’re out to avoid slips and falls.
3. If you’re sick, stay home. Know that a high temperature with a respiratory infection means you’re contagious. Don’t risk spreading the germs.
