The long Christmas holiday presents are great opportunity to enjoy time with family and friends, celebrate life, to be grateful and reflect about what is important in life. The holiday season is also a time to appreciate the gift of health.
During this festive season women are overwhelmed by family responsibilities which could lead to injuries or expose them to external attacks, diseases among other negative eventualities. Here are some holiday tips to support your effort for holiday season.
Children are at high risk of injuries. Keep a watchful eye on your kids when they’re eating and playing. Keep potentially dangerous toys, food, drinks and household items, choking hazards like (cones and hard candy) and other objects out of kid’s reach.
Rushing to open presents
When opening presents don’t rush to open them because you can get injuries during the process by using wrong items, some women use knives to open which is very dangerous and the best way could be using scissors to avoid to getting injuries.
And more to that is to be careful with tree lights and children swallowing bulbs; all sorts of these items and others can also cause injuries and sometimes death.
Handle and Prepare Food Safely
As you prepare holiday meals, keep yourself and your family safe from food-related illness. Wash hands and surfaces often. Avoid cross-contamination by keeping raw meat, poultry, seafood, and eggs (including their juices) away from ready-to-eat foods and eating surfaces. Cook foods to the proper temperature. Refrigerate promptly. Do not leave perishable foods out for more than two hours.

Avoid wearing expensive jewelry
To look good I understand that you have to wear something which is looking nice and its okay but I encourage you to wear them during daylight. If you must wear them at night move with a friend or family members to avoid thugs. Be aware of strangers approaching you for no any reason.
And more to that shop during daylight hours whenever possible. If you must shop at night, go with a friend or family member.
