The holiday season brings wonderful things such as family traditions, gifts, potential paid time off work, and extra time with loved ones.  It can also be very stressful and pose potential health risks.  Navigating the holiday crowds, preparing for out of town houseguests, and cooking large dinners are just a few of the things that could lead to pitfalls this holiday season.

Will you be traveling via airplane for your holiday plans?  WebMD.com offers a list of recommendations that include using disinfecting wipes on armrests, tray tables, seatbelt buckles and air vents in the area of your assigned seat.

Do you work in an office that has a seemingly never ending delivery of holiday treats? Mayo Clinic has a list of holiday nutrition tips you can utilize!

For a more comprehensive list of ways to for stay safe (and sane) this holiday season, the CDC offers some great tips including preparing food safely and washing your hands often.

We also can’t forget the fire risks associated with real Christmas trees and overburdened electrical outlets.  Visit the National Fire Protection Association website to learn more about home safety at Christmas time.

No matter how you celebrate this holiday season, NNLM SCR encourages you to do so in a safe and healthy manner!
