Your Holiday Prep: Cooking, Cleaning, Chiropractic
By Genevieve Cunningham
It's almost holiday time, and the excitement in the air is growing fast! But for most people, the stress of the holidays is growing as well. We have so many things to get done before family arrives. And the thought of getting behind is almost too much to bear. But don't panic yet! The key in managing holiday stress is to get prepared. If you would like to start preparations for the holidays now, take a look at these three areas to consider as soon as today.
Your Home: Cleaning
It seems like every home in the country gets a top to bottom cleaning before the holidays. We need our homes to be clean in order to entertain guests and bring in new gifts. The key to avoiding the stress involved with cleaning is to start early -- really early. Like right now! Choose a room and begin the deep cleaning process. Clean the windows, the floors, the linens, and the baseboards. Get rid of clutter and get organized. The sooner you begin the process, the less there is to do when the holidays roll around, and the more relaxed you'll be about bringing people into your home.
Your Meals: Cooking
The delicious meals and goodies that come with the holidays are half of the fun! We all look forward to the traditional treats as well as some new surprises. But if you're the one in charge of cooking the bulk of the menu, then this can also be incredibly stressful. The answer? Start getting prepared. If you need to buy a turkey, buy one and store it in a freezer. For other foods, start making a menu, gathering recipes, and making a clear list of all ingredients you'll need. The closer it gets to the holidays, the harder it's going to be to focus on what needs to be done. Do yourself a big favor and get started now.
Your Health: Chiropractic Care
Health tends to take a backseat during the holidays. There are simply too many other things to think about. But our health is probably one of the only things that really matters! So how can you keep it in check? Start with two easy tips: maintain exercise and visit the chiropractor! An exercise program helps keep your weight under control. Seeing the chiropractor can help work out holiday aches and pains, makes travel more comfortable, and also sets you up for better health in the new year. Chiropractic care is a great way to boost general health in your life, and the holidays are a great time to take health matters into your own hands.
