I know that the holidays are just around the corner and for many of you, especially the patients, it means a time of using extra energy that is at times not so easily found.

So I have prepared so suggestions for you to help you through the Christmas season.

#1 Rest when ever you can, take an afternoon cat nap, they are especially nice if you have a good book to curl up with. As for me, book in hand, sleep soon to follow ;-)!

#2 Rest where ever you can, whether it is in the car or in your favorite recliner or at Aunt Sally’s in “her” favorite recliner or rocker, Rest! This is the best thing you can do for yourself and for those around you!

# 3 Enjoy those around you and let them enjoy you. This is easily done when you follow #1 and #2. šŸ˜‰

#4 Make sure to eat at regular intervals, do not go for extended periods of time without consuming food, ya know likeĀ saving up for the big dinner, this will only mess up your blood sugar and make you feel lousy in the end.

#5 Drink PLENTY of WATER!!! Drink plenty of water!!! Keep yourself hydrated, any loss in your fluid intake can cause you to have muscle spams and I am sure most of you already have enough of those, you don’t need to increase these by not having good fluid intake, that means water!

and I will end with #6
