Last weekend was crazy for me. Ever since the beginning of December, I haven’t had a decent weekend of rest. I suppose it is the same for everyone who celebrates Christmas. Parties are being held left and right practically every day. The weekends are the worst, when you might even have to go from one party to another just to accommodate your friends and family members.
While I am not complaining – it has been the most fun period of this year – I do realize how potentially hazardous all this can be to my health; and you should realize this as well! With less than 2 weeks left before the end of the year, I am sure that you still have a lot of activities and events to engage in – do take a look at some tips that can keep you healthy and safe throughout the season.
Everyone has his limit. Know yours! Drinking and parties almost always go together. During this time of the year, you might find yourself drinking more than you normally do. Just make sure you know when to stop, and of course, don’t drink and drive.
Keep your food safe. What am I talking about? If you’re throwing a party, especially at the office, you might have the food ready hours before the event. Just to make sure it doesn’t spoil, immediately place it in the fridge. You wouldn’t want to (food) poison people, would you?
Walk as much as you can. I know, walking is tiring, but the chances are that you will not be able to exercise much during this period. In lieu of your regular exercise routine, try walking more. Walk to the store if it’s near enough. Walk up the stairs instead of using the elevator (if possible). Walk, walk, walk.
