12 Ways to Health

All this time I was thinking that the Center for Disease Control and Prevention had no sense of creativity and then they brought us this:

The 12 Ways to Health (sung to the tune of The 12 Days of Christmas.

The first way to health, said the CDC to me
Wash hands to be safe and healthy.

The second way to health, said the CDC to me
Bundle up for warmth, and wash hands to be safe and healthy.

The third way to health, said the CDC to me
Manage stress, bundle up for warmth, and wash hands to be safe and healthy.

The fourth way to health, said the CDC to me
Don't drink and drive, manage stress, bundle up for warmth, and wash hands to be safe and healthy.

The fifth way to health, said the CDC to me
BE SMOKE-FREE, don't drink and drive, manage stress, bundle up for warmth, and wash hands to be safe and healthy.

There's 7 more, so

Eat well and get moving, prepare dinner safely, practice fire safety, monitor the children, get your vaccinations, get exams and screenings, fasten belts while driving, BE SMOKE-FREE, don't drink and drive, manage stress, bundle up for warmth, and wash hands to be safe and healthy.

I will definitely give them credit for trying to make it interesting but this proves that the CDC is officially still very, very dry.
