The season for getting sick

sick

The Christmas season not only brings out the joyful mood in everybody, it also signals the rise of stress-related illnesses.

Stress gets into the picture months before Christmas break. The mere thinking of what to do, where to go, whom to be with, what to buy as gifts, the heavy traffic caused by rushing shoppers, and what to cook for a feast are mind bogglers that lead to anxiety and depression.

After all the merry-making ends in January, the danger of getting afflicted with diseases caused by too much eating comes in. Even weigh-watchers almost always cannot resist the temptation.

So before anyone gets busy preparing for the Christmas season, just think about the consequences you might face if you fail to resist the temptation of too much eating and engaging in stressful activities.
