Coping with Health Issues During the Holidays

Eileen Bailey Health Guide
  • The holidays are upon us. Women traditionally take on many more roles during this season. They may do most of the shopping and the cooking, while continuing to complete normal daily tasks, such as going to work, cleaning the house and taking care of the children. Sure, I know men take on more of an active role than in years past, but I also know women take on the majority of the household tasks.

     

    That means the holiday season can become overwhelming and stressful. All of the extra duties can take a toll on your health or your ability to enjoy the holidays.

     

    This week, I took a tour of healthcentral.com to find articles of all types to help you cope with many different health aspects during this holiday season.
