Even if you’re skipping your travel plans this season, the holidays are a time of peak stress. The pressure of pleasing is at an all time high, from finding the right gift for everyone in your pod to cooking a Martha Stewart meal in your Carry Bradshaw kitchen.
While this year, many may be forgoing the long lines and camping out waiting for the clock to hit midnight on Black Friday, the stress of holiday shopping still looms large. Sitting at a computer all day is sure to put some wear on your back, neck and hands as you type and scroll ‘til the elves come home. Once you hit the “check out” button, it’s time to think about yourself.
So, while the dreidel spins, kick up your feet in the warmest corner of your home. A cup of hot tea helps warm the body and soul as the weather gets colder. Snap a Body Comfort instantly activated heat pack to ease your aches and forget about how far you stretched your wallet.
If you’re feeling a bit battered after a day of putting up string lights or family zoom calls, try grabbing a Body Comfort cold pack from the freezer, wrapping in a dishcloth and pressing it against your upper back. Kick up your legs, lay back and turn on the latest drama or syndicated sitcom that all your friends are bingeing. Keep in mind that both heat and cold should be applied in 15 minute intervals. After 15 minutes of application, take a 15 minute rest. That’s one episode of The Office down!
