As we approach the end of the year celebrations with our family and friends, I would like to offer a sincere blessing to you and your loved ones. This is when most people take time off work to travel and visit their relatives. I am wishing each and every one of you safe travel. Here are some things to consider when traveling:
- When driving, please remember to get out of the car and walk around and stretch at least after every 2 hours of driving.
- If you are traveling by air, please also get up and walk every 2 hours to prevent a life threatening condition called deep vein thrombosis. Keeping properly hydrated while in the air is very important and drinking lots of water is encouraged.
Remember the holidays can be a stressful time but you don’t have to allow it to get you frazzled. Please take some time out for yourself and have a hot bath, go for a peaceful walk, read a book of inspiration and practice some deep breathing techniques. Cuddling with a young child or pet can also relieve some stress and bring balance to your life.
Whatever cultural background or holiday you celebrate, please enjoy it to the fullest and give the best of yourself through your time, talents and money and you will be rewarded. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa!
