During the holidays, we may find ourselves stretched a little thinner. We may skip meals, overeat, or indulge in foods that we have never tried before. These foods may or may not “agree” with us. During the holidays, we tend to eat more sweets and, perhaps, drink alcohol more often than usual. We may experience headaches due to stress. We may experience body aches in response to an increase in activity. The holidays seem to run into each other beginning with Thanksgiving and ending with the New Year.
Take the time to listen to your body every day, and, especially during the holidays. You know your body better than anyone. If you are feeling any unusual ache or pain, you may want to check with your primary care physician. Keep track of the location and duration of your pain. Please visit the following website for general information on pain. Take care of yourself!
