Holiday Stress!

One of the most stressful times of the year is the holiday season. Family, shopping, food, diet, traveling, etc.!!! It gets the best of us! 

The American Chiropractic Association has some great tips to surviving the holiday stress: 
  • Wear shoes with plenty of cushioning in the soles to absorb the impact of walking on those hard shopping mall floors.
  • Wear layers because you may be going from a cold environment outside to a warm environment inside.
  • Instead of lugging around a heavy purse, carry a light backpack or fanny pack with only those items that are absolutely essential.
  • Take frequent breaks, but skip the designer coffee at the java stand and drink water instead.
  • If at all possible, leave your children at home.
  • Do not wrap packages while sitting on a hard floor-you're more apt to strain a muscle in this position. Instead, vary your position from standing at a countertop to sitting on a bed or comfortable chair.
Consider also treating yourself to a nice, relaxing massage! Stay tuned for information on Christopher Chiropractic's annual massage gift certificate sale!
