Everyone knows this but remember to wash your hands often with soap for at least 20 seconds. And if you sneeze, sneeze into a tissue or into your sleeve or upper arm.
Stay Warm by keeping yourself dry and dressing in several layers. You don’t have to look stuffed, but….. you know what I mean!
Oh my! the stress! Balancing home, work and play can be hard. Keep a positive attitude and get plenty of sleep.
Watch out for the Police! They Love their Job and We Love Them! Travel safely by wearing your seatbelt, and don’t drink and drive!
Make 2018 the year to quit smoking.
See your doctor for check-ups. He may get lonely this time of year. Ask about what you need based on your age, lifestyle, medical and family health history.
Tis the season for a flu shot or other vaccinations!
Keep your eyes on the children. They are very excited this time of year. When they are running around, make sure you stay out of their way, you could knock them down! Seriously though, make sure toys are used properly, keep poisonous household products away from them. Perhaps refresh yourself on your first aid training.

Check your smoke detector and carbon monoxide detector to see if you need new batteries.
Use three or four cutting boards. Oh my Gosh! to avoid cross-contamination by keeping raw meat, poultry, seafood, and eggs (including their juices) away from ready-to-eat foods and eating surfaces. Cook foods to the proper temperature. Refrigerate promptly. Do not leave perishable foods out for more than two hours.
Create a fresh fruit treat as a sweet substitute for candy and dance to your favorite holiday music for exercise!
