So the weather has caught most of Ireland on the hop. More accurately, caused much absenteeism. Colds, flu, all manner of infections going around. It seems much of Ireland’s workforce are battling against some unidentified force. Ahh, is it Januaryitis perhaps? or should we take a more practical view and say with a ‘see-saw’ of such changeable weather, we mere mortals are developing low resistance to cope with the dilemma of what to wear, what to eat, how to look after ourselves to build up our own immune systems? Surely, with all we have available to support ourselves, have we just lost the ability to use our common sense?! Now I’m not proposing we all dash into the Irish Sea with such a cold wind chill, but maybe just getting out there helps clear the head, focus the mind.The more serious health issues, granted we cannot always avoid as life as we know is pretty much a lottery, but colds, coughs, come on….Joking aside. It’s the time of year to make sure we get outside. Take in the brightness of the blue skies on days they dazzle. That dose of Vitamin D is liquid gold. Off out now..maybe not with my togs today…!
