How to Make Your Holidays

Eco-Friendly

C

Come the holiday season, it can be easy to overlook certain things, like eco-friendly living, in an effort to make entertaining easier. The holiday season has become a time of excess, with large meals, an overabundance of presents and other wasteful measures. This year, environmentally conscious hosts can make an effort to make their celebrations more environmentally friendly. * Purchase locally made gifts to reduce the amount of shipping required. This cuts down on materials used and fossil fuels

that power planes or cargo ships needed to transport products made overseas. *According to the Environmental Protection Agency, roughly 40 percent of all battery sales take place during the holidays. Consumers concerned about the effect of batteries on the environment can give only battery-free gifts. * Make your own gifts. Not all gifts have to be bought at the store. There are many meaningful gifts that can be made by hand, and homemade gifts cut back on potentially harmful production

practices and transportation. * Cut back on lighting by reducing the number of lights you string up on your home and choosing energy-efficient lights. LED lights, which use up to 95 percent less energy than traditional bulbs, is another way to leave a smaller carbon footprint this holiday season. * Avoid especially flashy wrapping paper. Glossy or metallic wrapping paper is hard to recycle. Use paper made of natural fibers or select plain postage paper and dress up presents with reusable ribbons and bows.

Doctors are prescribing meDical sheepskin for its natural healing properties. Studies worldwide continue to show that sheepskins are an effective tool in the prevention of bedsores, and helping people rest better. More doctors are recommending sheepskins for their patients, for babies, and active men and women. Medical sheepskins help regulate body temperature, providing cool comfort in the summer and warmth in the winter. When used to sit or lie on, natural sheepskin distributes pressure evenly under the body allowing air circulation. It helps to relax and regenerate the body. In 2003, a study by doctors at The Royal Melbourne Hospital in Australia, showed that medical sheepskins reduce the likelihood of bedsores by 58%! They also found that bedsores are usually fully preventable! Bedsores (AKA pressure sores, pressure ulcers), are a commonly encountered problem experienced by 16 μ HOLIDAY 2013

people who are confined to a bed or sitting in a chair for long periods. Confined movement creates pressure on the skin where the body weight is supportednormally the lower back, buttocks, shoulders, and heels. This closes tiny arteries at the skins surface and prevents vital nutrients from reaching the skin

into deep decubitus ulcers, which could eat through muscles and tendons. Seniors are most at risk because their skin is very fragile. Medical sheepskin’s soft springy wool helps pre-

vent this from happening by distributing body weight, increasing air circulation around the body; reducing excess perspiration and helping people rest more comfortably. In another study by doctors at The University of Cambridge in England, they confirmed that babies actually grew better and slept more soundly on genuine sheepskins.

“My dad is bed-ridden and started getting pressure ulcers. I bought a medical sheepskin from Bo Peeps and no more pressure ulcers! Mahalo!” – M. Silva, Mililani “After my husbands open heart surgery, he was having difficulty sleeping. As the doctor recommended, I bought him a medical sheepskin from Bo Peeps which helped

to reduce his perspiration and improve his circulation. It worked so well we bought 3 more for other family members! Much aloha!” – N. Oasay, Waipahu “The only thing that’s helped with my nightly hot flashes is the sheepskin that I bought from your store. Thanks Bo Peeps for helping me sleep!” – J. Takata, Pearl City “My grandmother loves the sheepskin that I got her, but my grandfather kept stealing it so I had to buy him one too!” – T.

for teens

For the scores of shoppers who consciously or subconsciously wait until the last possible minute to shop, there are ways to survive and surprise friends and family with great gifts. Teens, in particular, are probably the most difficult to shop for since they tend to be very particular about everything during this phase of their life. Here are some ideas for the Teen(s) on your holiday list: • Teenagers can be finicky, so a monetary gift will be one-size-fits-all.

• Teenage girls may appreciate a

gift basket of delicious scented lotions. • Passes for movies can make date night less expensive. • Consider a gift card or e-gift coupon for digital music downloads. • Give a subscription to a teen magazine so that everyone can keep abreast of their favorite celebrities.

While those with more experience might know the tricks of the late season shopping trade, novice procrastinators might need a few of the following tips to find that perfect gift for the child or children on their list. Here are a few quick ideas to get something for the kiddies and under the tree in time for Christmas: * Pop into a toy store or a department store and pick up a fast and easy gift card so they can choose their gift this year. * Buy an art set for older children, full of paints and markers. If a complete set can’t be found, make an art package with a bunch of supplies packed into a gift bag.

Choose an educational gift that is still fun, like alphabet flash cards or puzzles.

* Choose an educational gift that is still fun, like alphabet flash cards or puzzles. A subscription to a children’s magazine would also work, seeing as children love getting mail. * Few kids will turn down a DVD of their favorite television characters. The DVDs should feature an ageappropriateness rating to make choosing one even easier.

Finding

Time

This Holiday Season

P

Perhaps no time of year is as busy as the holiday season, when social engagements and holiday shopping combine to dominate so much of what is normally our free time. Additionally, holiday travel and late nights spent at work to make up for lost time also cut into our free time, leaving many people in search of ways to add more hours to the day. Though there’s no way to make a day last longer, there are ways to save some time this holiday season. * Go it alone. Holiday shopping can be very time consuming, but shoppers who decide to shop alone may find themselves more productive and focused on the task at hand. Rather than going from store to store and checking items off multiple shopping lists, shoppers who shop singularly can devote all of their attention to their own lists. * Shop online. Another way to save time when shopping for the holidays is to shop online. This saves you the time it takes to drive to and from the mall and walk around multiple stores, all the while saving you from the often frustrating and time-consuming experience of finding a parking space. In addition, you can shop online at any time of day. So rather than

34 μ HOLIDAY 2013

Though there’s no way to make a day last longer, there are ways to save some time this holiday season. just eating lunch at your desk on your lunch hour or spending the last hour before you go to bed for the night idling away on the couch, you can make more efficient use of that time by doing some holiday shopping. * Plan ahead. Whether shopping for holiday gifts, taking the family to buy a Christmas tree or organizing a holiday dinner with friends, the more you can plan ahead of the holiday season the less time you will waste once the season hits full swing. For example, when choosing a weekend to go Christmas tree shopping, inform others a few weeks in advance and let them know you want to go early to avoid crowds. This saves you time and might just help you land one of the best trees on the lot. The same principle of planning can be applied to other aspects of the holiday season as well. Planning a meal early allows you to gradually stock up on menu items,

saving you the hassle of rushing to the store at the last minute or planning a menu in the days before the party when you will already have enough on your plate. * Don’t shy away from shortcuts when hosting holiday dinners. Hosting a holiday dinner is a big undertaking, one that often finds hosts spending a significant amount of time in the kitchen. But hosts can save time by taking some shortcuts regarding the menu. For instance, when hosting an especially large meal, don’t be afraid to buy some premade side dishes from a local grocery store or buy a bakery cake rather than whipping up your own homemade dessert. Guests will understand if you cut some corners in an effort to save some time, and the food will likely be just as delicious.

Diet Drinksfor holiday entertaining

A

Although food and presents may be on the minds of holiday hosts and hostesses, they may want to give some consideration to beverages as well. To be accommodating to the most number of guests, include sugar-free beverages when celebrating the season. According to a study by Tala Fakhouri, an epidemiologist with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, diet drinks are overtaking sugary beverages among many health-conscious men and women. Research found diet drink consumption has increased over the past decade, reinforcing other the belief that regular soda drinking has decreased. Diet drinks include calorie-free and lowcalorie sodas, fruit drinks, energy drinks, carbonated waters, and sports beverages.

Sugar consumption in sodas has dropped from around 150 calories a day in 2000 to 91 calories in 2008, indicated study findings. Men are more likely to consume sugary drinks, while 21 percent of diet drinks are consumed by women. When hosting guests for the holidays it is important to make available a wide variety of beverages. Water is always the healthiest beverage, so make that available to all guests. Put filtered water in a pitcher with some cucumber or apple slices for a refreshing flavor. For those serving soft drinks, have diet varieties on hand for people who are counting calories. All-natural fruit juices may be a wise choice for parties with children in attendance.

Frugal

Holiday shoppers spend billions of dollars each year on gifts for friends, family and coworkers. But holiday shoppers also spend substantial amounts of money dressing up those gifts with bows and wrapping paper. Shoppers may not want to spend much more on wrapping paper, bags and other ways to dress-up their gifts, and by employing a few tricks of the gift wrapping trade, they may not have to. The following are some frugal, yet flashy, ways to wrap presents this holiday season. * Children’s artwork: Over the course of a school year parents can accumulate dozens of original pieces of art from their children’s time in the classroom. Instead of relegating those pictures to a memory box or temporary glory on the refrigerator, turn them into unique gift wrap. Pair these pieces of art with colored ribbon, and everyone who gets a unique masterpiece will feel special. * Newspaper: Recycle newsprint and comics into wrapping paper. Encourage everyone to wrap in newspaper for a cohesive look come Christmas morning.

Gift Wrapping Ideas

Leftover cloth from Halloween or cloth purchased to create homemade curtains can be turned into gift wrap for awkwardshaped gifts. * Cloth: Leftover cloth from Halloween or cloth purchased to create homemade curtains can be turned into gift wrap for awkward-shaped gifts. Use decorative ribbon to seal the bundle shut. * Brown paper: Brown paper tied with twine or ribbon is inexpensive and can easily be recycled after use. Use a marker to put the names of gift recipients on each package to save on gift tags as well.

* Glass jars: Use mason jars when wrapping smaller gifts, including gift cards, to give them an arts-and-crafts feel. * Fabric gift bags: If you’re handy with a needle and thread, sew sacks out of leftover fabric to make gift bags of various sizes. * Cookie tins: Find unique cookie tins from yard sales or leftover tins from holidays past and use them as gift boxes. * Recipes: If you will be giving a cookbook or food-themed gifts, print recipes that can be used as gift wrap and then later used to make certain dishes. * Baby linens: From blankets to wash cloths, use baby linens to wrap infant-themed gifts for new parents. * Baskets: Wicker baskets are available in various shapes and sizes. They can be used to make a gift collection and then reused over and over again. There are many creative and inexpensive ways to wrap gifts this year instead of relying on preprinted and often expensive wrapping paper. HOLIDAY 2013 μ 41

Many people consider pets great holiday gifts. But in spite of their popularity as presents, pets do not always make the most appropriate holiday gift. Giving a pet as a present seems like a great idea, but shoppers might want to give it more consideration before giving a gift that is such a considerable responsibility. A puppy at Christmas or a bunny at Easter may be given with good intentions, but that well-meaning sentiment can easily backfire, ending with the pet being given up for adoption when recipients don’t feel up to the task of raising a pet. In such instances, the companion animal pays the steepest price. Though it often is, buying a pet should not be an impulse purchase. You see sad eyes looking back at you from behind a cage door and want to give that animal a new home. However, introducing an animal into a family is not a decision to take lightly. You must factor how well the pet will fit in with the family dynamic. Do schedules allow for quality time spent with the animal? Is it a financially good time to care for an animal that will cost money? Are you aware of how long the pet will live? Making those big decisions for a person on the receiving end of your well-intentioned gift may be crossing a line. Would you want to have such a life-changing decision made for you? Furthermore, the holiday season is not one ideally suited for making careful decisions. People

Before Giving Pets

are often swept up in emotions and even stress, and shoppers may not be thinking rationally. The hectic nature of the holiday season can be a difficult time for a pet to grow acclimated to its new environment. He or she may be frightened to assimilate or take longer to settle down. Pets often need several weeks of quiet and constant care to become comfortable in their new environments.

Animal welfare groups warn that an estimated 50 percent of pets adopted during the holidays end up right back at shelters. Here are some other reasons why the holidays are not a good time for new pets. * Holiday visitors may frighten the new pet and he or she may become weary of strangers at the outset. * The activities in the household may pose safety hazards for the young animal. An

abundance of rich foods and various decorations could be ingested, potentially causing illness. * New pets should be carefully supervised around children to see how they behave. A child may not be accustomed to handling a puppy or kitten and could injure the animal. Similarly, the pet may be skittish and lash out at the child. Adults busy with holiday obligations may be easily distracted and miss how their child is interacting with the new pet. * Once the glow of the holidays wear off, children may be disillusioned with the new responsibility that has fallen into their hands. They may not like the responsibility that comes with being a good pet owner. Reputable pet breeders and animal shelters often discourage individuals from adopting or purchasing pets as holiday gifts. Many organizations and animal businesses require a careful vetting of potential pet parents to ensure the animal will be placed with a family and in a home that is suitable. Animal welfare groups warn that an estimated 50 percent of pets adopted during the holidays end up right back at shelters. This can scar the pet. Avoid the temptation of giving a companion animal as a present. If it is your intention to gift an animal, talk to the gift recipient and discuss the pros and cons beforehand. Then you can work together and make the right decision for all parties involved, including the pet.

The holiday season is dominated by parties, family gatherings and festive foods. Overindulgence in rich foods and drink during the holiday season, compounded by cold weather that can make it difficult to exercise, often leads to weight gain by the end of the holiday season. But focusing on diet and exercise during the holiday season can help you avoid unwanted weight gain and provide more energy as the season progresses. The following are some effective ways to sail through the season without gaining weight. * Don’t scrimp and sacrifice all of the time. The body is a powerful machine, but it does not always work the way that we want it to. According to nutritional experts, rather than metabolizing food on a daily basis, the body is geared to work over longer periods of time. That means you can balance out a high-calorie day by eating less food and/or lighter fare on the days before and after those days when you anticipate overeating. * Fill up before you go out. If you are worried about high-calorie foods and drinks that are often served at parties or holiday gatherings, eat before going to the event. Hunger may cause you to overeat and fill up on the wrong kinds of foods. Instead, eat a low-calorie snack that’s high

of the Holiday Bulge

If you are worried about high-calorie foods and drinks that are often served at parties or holiday gatherings, eat before going to the event. in protein and high in fiber before leaving the house. Eating beforehand may help you avoid the chips and dips. * Fill up your plate with the right mix of foods. Don’t deny yourself when faced with a big holiday dinner. Rather, fill the plate with a good mix of foods. Devote more space to lean proteins, such as roasted turkey or chicken. Even lean ham is good. Devote much of the rest of your plate to roasted vegetables and whole grains. Take only small portions of high-fat foods like candied yams or bread stuffings. You will still satisfy your craving, but you won’t be overdoing it. * Skip the spirits for the most part. Alcoholic beverages are loaded with empty calories. Many people would rather reserve bonus calories for a piece of pie or a rich brownie. Limit yourself to one drink per day.

* Exercise every day. It can be easy to push exercise aside when you’re busy with holiday tasks. But soon your metabolism may slow down in response to your body’s suddenly more sedentary lifestyle, leading to weight gain. Aim for some sort of daily exercise, whether you decide park further away from stores at the mall or take the stairs instead of the escalator. Don’t relegate exercise to a New Year’s resolution. Inactivity will only mean you have to work harder in the future to shed those unwanted pounds you packed on during the holiday season. Weight gain may be another part of the holiday season for many men and women. But individuals concerned about adding extra pounds can stop the pattern of gaining weight during the holiday season by making smart choices throughout the season. HOLIDAY 2013 μ 51
