Donna Skoda, Health Commissioner for Summit County Public Health, says it's not too late to get a flu shot. She encourages everyone to do so because this is a really bad flu season. Also, she says that sometimes you might think you have the flu, but you could be suffering from the effects of carbon monoxide poisoning, so it's a good idea to have a CO detector in your home to ensure your safety. Speaking of gasses in the atmosphere that can hurt your health, Donna's department will send you a free radon screening test that will help you determine if your home has a radon problem. Just call Summit County Public Health at 330.926.5600 or go to the website.

Judi Bar, Yoga Program Manager at Cleveland Clinic's Wellness Institute, talked about choosing joy for the new year. As humans, we're wired to look out for ourselves, she says. That means we tend to focus on what's not right in our lives vs. what is right. Instead, she suggests that we "find the good in every day." With that attitude, "even our challenges can be blessings in disguise," she says. Judi is on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
