Assuming you are no Elsa, the cold probably bothers you. Being prepared for winter will let you stay focused on school work and building a snowman rather than how freezing cold it is outside. Here are a few tips to stay healthy in the winter:
1. Make sure you have got the gear.
Gloves, cozy socks, scarf, hat, big winter coat, long johns or leggings, and boots are all necessities this time of year.
2. Get a flu shot.
Staying healthy is important, check out your local pharmacy for possibility of free flu shots.
3. Keep lotion, tissues and tea in your dorm room.
Getting small packs of tissues for your backpack is a good idea also. Nothing’s worse than sitting in a midterm with a runny nose and no tissue.
4. Find out snow day information.
Whether it’s by following the school president on Twitter or by signing up for texting alerts, you don’t want to show up to class on a snow day!
5. Avoid fire hazards.
Don’t cover up your dorm heater and if something goes wrong, call 911. If you have other fire safety questions, contact your RA.
