Flu Shots Are Now Available At Neighborhood Essentia Clinics

About a month ago my daughter and I talked about getting our annual flu shots, something we do together every year.  Then, we both got colds so the idea was put on hold.  Now that we're both healthy again I set out to see where we could go.  I found that Essentia Clinics is offering the flu shots at multiple clinics across the Northland.

Beer Has Healthy Bone Benefits

I often hear about the benefits of drinking beer.  Since I'm a runner I wasn't sure that those benefits would be something that affected me.  But, after research, I found it certainly does!  My bones!  You don't have to be a runner to want healthy bones, you'd just be a blob if you didn't have bones, so if you're 21 consider the health of your bones at Twin Ports on Tap.

Combat Flu Season By Making Your Own Hand Sanitizer

It's cold and flu season (and has been for a while).  We heed all the warnings.  Wash your hands, cough and sneeze into your elbow instead of your hands and stay home if you are feeling ill.  Of course, people are also using an abundance of hand sanitizer, which makes your hands dry out.  But, I found one that is alcohol free that you can make at home from jill at onegoodthingbyjillee.com

I recently was asked to take a pole dancing class so I could knowledgeably talk about what it was like.  I know I'm not totally out of shape because I run on a regular basis with my husband, but I did find muscles that I haven't used in a L O N G time.  So, I just had to try this online calculator to determine where I was sitting in my "fitness age".  What's yours?

Where Will You Get Your Flu Shot or Mist? Public Flu Shot Clinics Now Open in the Northland

About a month ago we were told to get our flu shots early.  So, my daughter and I set a day that we planned to get it done.  However, I found that the venue we normally got our shots at, the local clinics, weren't ready to administer them.  We did discuss going to another outlet, but decided to wait.  If you haven't already gotten your shot or mist from a local business, or at your doctor's office, you can now get them at a public flu shot clinic.
