The month of January is TBI Sport Awareness month.
TBI stands for Traumatic Brain Injury. According to the American Physical Therapy Association, approximately 1.7 million head injuries occur in the United States each year.
TBI Winter Sport Awareness month exists because TBI is usually misdiagnosed. Misdiagnosed TBI can lead to severe medical complications or even death.
Did you know? Approximately 52,000 people die every year due to TBI.
- Keep young children separated from older children.
- Sledding feet first or sitting up, instead of lying down head-first, may prevent head injuries.
Did you know? Approximately 20,000 children arrive in the emergency room each year due to sledding injuries.
Don't play while sick.
You won't be able to concentrate if your nose is running faster than you can. You can also contaminate the rest of your teammates. Best to wait until you feel better, so you can enjoy a safe season.

New Year's Resolution to All:
New Year's Resolution for 2019:
Small changes lead to big results! I plan to make one small change to better my health each month.
I’ve discovered over the years that being healthy doesn’t have to cost a fortune or take excessive amounts of time.
Weight loss 1 pound a month. Sounds scary I know, but it’s really not.
Let’s break it down this way: One pound per month is .25 lbs per week or 125 calorie deficit per day. Consuming 125 calories less per day is the approximate elimination or 1 glass of milk, 1 slice of bread, or 1 can of soda. Combining that small change every day will equal 12 lbs lost over the year and you didn’t have to break a sweat. Literally! All the while establishing healthy eating habits.
Did you know? Individuals become addicted to simple carbohydrates due to the sharp increase of serotonin levels or the “feel good” effect. The “feel good” effect is short-lived because the elevated mood declines quickly as serotonin levels decline. This rapid decline is also known as a sugar crash.
Remember: 2019 will fly by whether we like it or not. Make each month count by making small simple changes to better your lifestyle.
