Staying Healthy this Year

It's that time of year... head colds and stomach bugs and feeling under-the-weather. I'm sure it's the same for you, but I don't have any time to be sick. I can't miss school, can't miss field hockey, and need all my energy all the time. Last week, I felt like I was the only person that wasn't infected by the pesky cold that seems to take everybody down. My team had it, my family had it, and it seemed like everyone in my classes were getting up to get a tissue. Being sick weighs you down so much and I feel like I can never find any motivation because all I want to do is sleep. I'm going to do all I can this year to keep all the germs, viruses, and colds away.
