As the temperature drops and the holiday season is in full swing, make sure to take care of yourself and your family's health!
Wear the Right Clothing for Cold Weather
With the temperatures growing colder and colder, the CDC recommends adults and children wear a hat, a scarf or knit mask to cover face and mouth, sleeves that are snug at the wrist, mittens (they are warmer than gloves), water-resistant coat and shoes and several layers of loose-fitting clothing.
When it comes to toys and gifts, the excitement of the holidays and desire to get children their favorite toys may cause shoppers to forget about safety factors associated with them. Before you make these purchases, it is critical to remember to consider the safety and age range of the toys.
Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is a type of depression that's related to changes in seasons. Don't brush off that yearly feeling as simply a case of the "winter blues" or a seasonal funk that you have to tough out on your own. Take steps to keep your mood and motivation steady throughout the year.
