*Happiest of Birthdays to Lauren L!!!

*Yes, winter has returned to Chicagoland. That means flu season is back as well. Here are some tips to help stay healthy:
1) Wear a hat. If you're dressed inappropriately, your core body temperature can drop, and that can lower your immune system's function. Since your body loses the most heat through the head, make sure you wear a cap outside.
2) Drink OJ. Doctors believe vitamin C helps people recover faster from colds, though it does not prevent them. They also agree that eating a well-balanced diet is a better way to get vitamin C than supplementing with large doses.
3) Exercise. Exercising and getting enough sleep (7.5 hours) keeps you healthy and boosts your immune system.
