As Christmas Day nears I noticed that a lot of people are getting sick. I’m not sure whether it’s due to the inclement weather or the fact that there are a lot of Christmas-related activities that makes them busier. The reasons may vary from one person to another. Here are a few tips on how to cope with the holiday stress.
- Make a plan of all your activities be it personal or with family members.
- Do not ignore common signs of illness.
- Serve nutritious food. Eat ham and pastries in moderation. Drink plenty of water.
- Have enough sleep or rest when you can.
- If you can’t avoid crowded places like malls and market, do your grocery shopping as early as you can.
- Prepare a list of possible gift items to save you time and energy. If you are shopping online for musical instrument, check on thehub.musiciansfriend.com/drum-buying-guides/how-to-choose-the-right-drumsticks.
- Choose inexpensive and environment-friendly Christmas decor. You can DIY decors using available materials at home.
- Buy age-appropriate toys for kids. Make sure the toys are free from harmful chemicals.
- Welcome the New Year with noise from pots and pans and not with firecrackers.
