The groundhog says we have six more weeks of winter, and in Utah that means inversion.

Following these simple steps can make a big impact on the air quality in our valley:

• Consolidate vehicle trips and reduce total driving.
• Park and walk instead of using drive-up windows.
• Don't idle a vehicle for more than 30 seconds, even on cold mornings.
• Ride a bike, car-pool, or use public transportation.
• Don't burn wood or coal, indoors or out.

DID YOU KNOW: Every 2 seconds someone needs blood in the United States. But less than 10% of Americans donate blood.

Sure, the needle hurts a little, but you can be a real-life hero to those in desperate need of that blood.

Have you ever donated blood? Want to get involved? Check out these upcoming donation opportunities: http://www.redcrossblood.org/give/drive/driveSearchList.jsp?zipSponsor=84604

A big THANK YOU to The Ray and Tye Noorda Foundation which  recently donated $338,000 to the Cancer Center.

The funds will be used for the construction of a radiation vault room and purchase of equipment needed for High-dose Rate (HDR) Brachytherapy, which is used to treat prostate, breast and gynecological cancers.

What's your go-to snack? Chocolate? Chips? Popcorn? 

Snacking can be good, but often it comes with extra fat and calories. To snack the healthy way:
1. Only snack when you are hungry
2. Watch portion sizes
3. Plan snacks ahead of time

Good news, ladies! It turns out being on social media, particularly Twitter, can actually reduce stress. Does social media help you to feel less stressed?

And for more relaxation, follow us on Twitter (@afhospital)

A Pew study showed that, contrary to popular opinions, social media use is associated with lower stress levels in women and has no measurable impact on men.
