Top Five Health Tips For The Yuletide Season by michaelo2(m): 9:29am On Dec 25, 2017
Ready for Christmas and New Year? You may have your Christmas menu planned, your tree decorated and your wish list full, but have you thought about the potential health risks?

During the holiday season, there is a heightened risk of compromising our health for various reasons.

Don't worry, Health This Moment is wishing you a healthy christmas with health tips for the yuletide season.

So here, in no particular order are the top five yuletide health tips.

1. Wash your hands often.

The yuletide season always involves alots of hugs, handshakes, kiss on cheeks.

Keeping your hands clean is one of the most important steps you can take to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others.

Wash your hands with soap and clean running water, and rub them together for at least 20 seconds.

Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. If you don’t have tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve or elbow, not your hands.

2. Stay warm.

The yuletide season is always associated with harmattan and winter cold. Cold temperatures can cause serious health problems, especially in infants and older adults.

Stay dry, and dress warmly in several layers.

3. Manage stress.

The yuletide season don’t need to take a toll on your health and pocketbook. Keep your commitments and spending in check.

Balance work, home, and play. Get support from family and friends, if your finances aren't strong.

Keep a relaxed and positive outlook. Make sure to get proper sleep, if there is going to be a party, make sure to sleep well after.

4. Handle and prepare food safely.

As you prepare holiday meals, keep yourself and your family safe from food-related illness. Wash hands and surfaces often.

Avoid cross-contamination by keeping raw meat, poultry, seafood, and eggs (including their juices) away from ready-to-eat foods and eating surfaces.

Cook foods to the proper temperature. Refrigerate promptly. Do not leave perishable foods out for more than two hours.

5. Eat healthy, and be active.

With balance and moderation, you can enjoy the holidays the healthy way. Choose With balance and moderation, you can enjoy the holidays the healthy way.

Choose fresh fruit as a festive and sweet substitute for candy. Limit fats, salt, and sugary foods.

Find fun ways to stay active, such as dancing to your favorite holiday music. Be active for at least 2½ hours a week. Help kids and teens be active for at least 1 hour a day.

Avoid overeating and weight gain by:

•Drinking a glass of cold water before you eat — this can help curb your appetite.

•Eat slowly; wait at least 20 minutes before going back for seconds or grabbing dessert, constipation is never friendly.

I naturally expect readers to take great exception with the list and suggest their own and probably to accuse me of being a Christmas kill-joy.

Not so, but a few sensible precautions could help prevent this being a festive period to forget.

A merry - and healthy - Christmas to you all.

I can guarantee you that nobody will eat fresh fruits and vegetables over Christmas. Haba. Is it unto death. Even nutritionists will not take their own advice. Two days of indulgence will not kill anyone as two days of exercise and diet will not shrink Michelin Man.

RULES for those who will be drinking BUT NOT BUYING during December period:
1. Respect the buyer.
2. Greet the buyer before you sit.
3. Incase the buyer's phone goes off due to battery empty,quickly put his simcard in your phone and yours in the empty wallet.
4. Don't be boring, tell more stories but don't talk more than the buyer.
5. Always help the buyer with carrying beers from the counter.
6. Dance to any music that the buyer likes.
7. Buyer's jokes are always funny so you must laugh out loud.
8. If there is only one lady at the table she belongs to the buyer.
9. When the buyer fights, fight; even if you are skinny and weak, my friend, fight!
10. Wait for the buyer to finish his drink before you open another one, no matter how fast you drink.
11. When the buyer stops drinking, stop too.
12. Always drink cheaper drinks than what the buyer drinks
13. You drink what the buyer wants you to drink
14. When using a cooler box, you are responsible for breaking the ice blocks.
15. In a cooler box, the buyer's drinks should be at the bottom and yours at the top, you're responsible for taking out those drinks whenever the buyer calls for one.
Thank you for cooperation.
