Whether you celebrate Hanukkah (Chanukah), Christmas, Kwanzaa or just going with the flow of the holiday season - be sure to keep it together. What do I mean by keeping it together?
While getting together with friends for drinks after work could be fun, the holiday season seems to be one of the most merriest yet deadliest seasons for many. Keep the drinking to a minimum so that you may be alert and aware. Drinking although it is emphasized for those who drive, also applies to those who rely on public transportation or even those who may hook up with a random guy they meet at a bar/club. Drinking alters your ability to be in control. It is easy to think that you can control your drinking, taking public transportation can also put you at risk to a predator who sees an opportunity to take advantage of you. This applies to men and women, you place yourself in a vulnerable position where you can be mugged, raped or both. Travel with friends although it wont be effective if you are all inebriated.
No need to get high on any form of drugs either - there's nothing groovy or cool in that. Truth be told, and I don't mind telling you - your behavior can be annoying or a disruption to others who are trying to have a real good time without drugs. In fact, as your high levels return to your normal state, you may be quite embarrassed or unaware of the things that took place during your fleeting moment of having a good time. Of course the consequences to your health is no party at all!
As I celebrate Christmas with my family, I want to wish you a joyous holiday season. Make each moment a memorable one - one that you will be proud of ;-)Eat and exercise, drink in moderation and be merry!!
