Ahhh, flu season. What to do?

Well it seems it's that time again. You know, when everyone gets flu's and colds. It's a combination of the flux in the daily weather differences (minus 21 today, plus 3 tomorrow), improper dress attire, low vitamin D from our lack of sun, poor nutrition and decrease in exercise from our winter blues. What to do? Well kick it up a notch!
- supplement vitamin D, especially without seeing the sunshine regularly;
- eat properly to support your immune system;
- exercise even if you feel blue, it'll release your happy chemical and keep your body strong;
- dress appropriately for outdoor play; I'm not saying you catch a cold from the cold but if your system is already down, it's a lot harder for it to protect itself when its trying to keep you warm.
