Hey, did you hear the news? Phil, the world’s most famous groundhog, scurried out of his tiny marmot hole and saw his shadow the other day in Punxsutawney PA.
What does this mean for you? A longer winter: yah!!! Just kidding. This news isn’t great for many of you, but we feel it’s necessary to point out that Phil didn’t say Spring is cancelled, only that it will be slightly delayed. As well, although he’s a cute little guy, the furry predictor isn’t always right.
But, whether Phil’s right or wrong, spring will be here before we know it.
So, if you’re a Spring sports enthusiast, consider it a wink and a nudge to be like Winnie the Pooh’s Tigger and bounce into action in preparation for spring.
Phil’s prediction can also be viewed as a strong omen that spring allergies are lurking around the corner, waiting to pounce when you least expect it, so it’s time to spring into action and get your allergy evaluation and get your allergy plan ready.
The Best Reason to Get a Jump on Your Spring Sports Physical Appointment
Tigger bounces because he’s fun, fun, fun—and because his bottom is made out of spring. Spring sports are fun, too, but athletes are made out of skin, bone, and muscle, which can unfortunately be cut, broken, and torn. We know you don’t want this to happen. By scheduling your spring sports physical now, you can get a jump on ensuring your child is primed and ready to get into the swing of things. The examination does more than make sure they’re ready to play; it’s also a way to educate them on avoiding injuries.
The Best Reason To Spring Into Action and Schedule Your Allergy Evaluation
There are a ton of things you’d rather be doing because you feel great right now: the cold has kept allergies in the shadows. We hate to bring the bad news, but we must remind you that allergies will be springing up soon.
Did you know The Asthma and Allergy foundation of America, researchers believe:
● Nasal allergies affect about 50 million people;
● Allergies are increasing and affect as many as 30% of adults and 40% of children;
● Allergies are the 6th leading cause of chronic illness in the U.S.
