I hope this finds you healthy this time of year. I'm sure you already know it's flu season, and this year's a doozy.
The map here, according to Google, shows in red which states have what's considered an "intense" outbreak of the flu. Looks like your state is red too.
The best thing you can do for your health is to be happy. Yes, easier said than done, of course. But here's my short list to help with that.
1. Avoid watching (or listening to) the news. If it's important, someone will tell you in person. (Trust me on this. I haven't watched the news for at least 10 years, and I've not missed anything.)
2. Fix the stuff you can, when you can, if you can. Don't worry about stuff you can't fix. Worry can kill you.
3. Eat as "close to the ground" as you can, as often as you can. If it comes in a bag, it's probably not nourishing your body. Oh yeah, and eat a lot of ginger—that stuff is awesome!
5. Love often and laugh often, especially with kids.
And if you do get the flu, PLEASE stay home!
