Beef Up Your Brain Indoors.

Don't become a "beast" during the Chicago winter months

Being snowed in can produce several things: 1) jelly around your mid-section 2) babies 3) pent-up boredom/mood swings and 4) an unhealthy love of all things on the QVC channel.   If you’re looking to break the cycle of cabin fever, dust off your Chicago library card or get onto Netflix and check out a few of these titles.

Who knows how much creativity and fun you can cook up during the next few months of being snowbound.
