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.

  1. Make a plan of all your activities be it personal or with family members.
  2. Do not ignore common signs of illness.
  3. Serve nutritious food. Eat ham and pastries in moderation. Drink plenty of water.
  4. Have enough sleep or rest when you can.
  5. If you can’t avoid crowded places like malls and market, do your grocery shopping as early as you can.
  6. 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.
  7. Choose inexpensive and environment-friendly Christmas decor. You can DIY decors using available materials at home.
  8. Buy age-appropriate toys for kids. Make sure the toys are free from harmful chemicals.
  9. Welcome the New Year with noise from pots and pans and not with firecrackers.
