Holiday survival tips and tricks

• Drink plenty of water throughout the day. Dehydration can tax the body and lead to feelings of sluggishness or even induce headaches.

t is almost here. It begins on Black Friday with shopping frenzies for mom, dad, your wife or girlfriend and the kids. Then there is the task of wrapping and hiding presents from prying eyes.

• Wear comfortable shoes with plenty of cushioning to withstand the impact of walking all day. • Use a backpack to tote essentials along. Also, packages can be stuffed into the backpack to free up hands or balance the weight of purchases.

The holiday season is packed with fun times, frantic days and lots of filling (and fattening) food.

• Don’t carry around more than you can handle. Plan frequent trips to the car to drop off purchases. If lockers are available in the mall, use them.

Getting through the holidays may feel like a goofy reality TV show, but it becomes all too real as the day approaches.

• Take breaks every hour and sit down to rest feet and de-stress.

In this Holiday Survival Guide the staff has put together some tips, tricks and fun to help you get through the season and shopping. Think about how the holidays are akin to an athletic event: • During shopping a person can unknowingly walk several miles in a store or mall. • Individuals often tote around heavy packages and/or lift weighty items. • Long hours are spent on one’s feet.

• Fast decisions have to be made on purchases. • Holiday decorating may entail climbing up and down a ladder or bringing heavy boxes out of the attic. • People may keep long hours traveling to social engagements, taxing their bodies.

These are just a few demands on the body. In order to prevent fatigue or more serious injury from holiday activities, consider these pointers. • Stretch out before you hit the stores. Warm up stiff muscles to prepare for the day ahead.

• Eat light, healthy foods. Greasy fast food could strain overstressed organs. Heart attacks during the holidays are common. Healthy foods can also help combat the average 6 pounds of weight a person gains during the season of overindulgence. • Caffeine can stress the body even more, so try to limit intake. • Know your limits. If your body is telling you enough is enough, call it a day.

‘Before you buy’ checklist

It’s that time of year again, when parents, grandparents, and friends begin to prepare holiday toy shopping lists. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) wants consumers to know that while safety should be at the top of everyone’s toy list, stronger federal rules are making a positive impact and restoring confidence in the safety of toys. New toy safeguards include: establishing the lowest lead content and lead paint limits in the world; setting a stringent limit on the use of certain phthalates; converting the voluntary toy standards into mandatory standards; requiring third party testing and certification of toys designed or intended primarily for children 12 and younger; closing in on new limits for cadmium in toys; and working with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to track shipments in transit from other countries, thereby increasing seizure of dangerous imported toys. These safeguards, along with safety-conscious steps taken by many toy makers and sellers, have contributed to a continued decline in toy recalls since 2008. There were 34 toy recalls in fiscal year 2011. This is down from 46 toy recalls in fiscal year 2010, 50 recalls in 2009, and 172 recalls in 2008. In 2011, toy recalls related to lead declined to 4, down from 19 in 2008. “Strong toy standards support the production of safer toys in the marketplace,” said Chairman Inez Tenenbaum. “Parents and toy shoppers also always need to be vigilant by choosing age appropriate toys and keeping small parts, balls, and balloons out of the hands of young children.” Toy-related deaths to children younger than 15 increased to 17 fatalities reported in 2010, up from 15 reported in 2009. Nearly half of these toy-related fatalities were attributed to choking on balloons, small balls, and rubber balls. A new report (pdf) released by CPSC today also notes that about 181,500 children younger than 15 years of age were treated in U.S. hospital emergency departments due to toy-related injuries in 2010. Nonmotorized scooters continued to be the category of toys associated with the most injuries. Frequently these injuries involved lacerations, contusions, and abrasions to the child’s face and head. Importantly many of the incidents were associated with, but not necessarily caused by, a toy. Here are some safety steps that consumers can take while shopping this holiday season: • Balloons - Children can choke or suffocate on deflated or broken balloons. Keep deflated balloons away from children younger than 8 years old. Discard broken balloons at once. • Small balls and other toys with small parts - For children younger than age 3, avoid

toys with small parts, which can cause choking. • Scooters and other riding toys - Riding toys, skateboards, and in-line skates go fast, and falls could be deadly. Helmets and safety gear should be worn properly at all times, and they should be sized to fit. • Magnets - For children under age 6, avoid building or play sets with small magnets. If magnets or pieces with magnets are swallowed, serious injuries and/or death can occur. Once the gifts are open: • Immediately discard plastic wrappings or other packaging on toys before they become dangerous play things. • Keep toys appropriate for older children away from younger siblings. • Charging batteries should be supervised by adults. Chargers and adapters can pose thermal burn hazards to young children. Pay attention to instructions and warnings on battery chargers. Some chargers lack any mechanism to prevent overcharging. Along with educating the public, CPSC is committed to working with foreign and domestic toy manufacturers, importers, and retailers to help them understand and comply with U.S. toy requirements. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of injury or death associated with the use of the thousands of consumer products under the agency’s jurisdiction. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product incidents cost the nation more than $900 billion annually. CPSC is committed to protecting consumers and families from products that pose a fire, electrical, chemical, or mechanical hazard. CPSC’s work to ensure the safety of consumer products - such as toys, cribs, power tools, cigarette lighters and household chemicals - contributed to a decline in the rate of deaths and injuries associated with consumer products over the past 30 years. To report a dangerous product or a productrelated injury, go online to: SaferProducts. gov, call CPSC’s Hotline at (800) 638-2772 or teletypewriter at (301) 595-7054 for the hearing and speech impaired. Consumers can obtain this news release and product safety information at www.cpsc.gov. To join a free e-mail subscription list, please go to www.cpsc.gov/cpsclist.aspx.

Tips for a warm and a safe holiday BY Ileana LiMarzi

veryone wants to make sure that all in our community remain safe and healthy during the holidays. As our weather continues to become cooler here are some safety reminders to following. • Make sure your chimney is clean before use – having it inspected annually by a licensed chimney sweep will ensure there is no soot build up, nests, leaves or other debris that may block your chimney. • Keep flammable items away from your fireplace and use a metal screen to keep the burning embers from popping out. • Extinguish the fire completely before leaving the room, keeping the damper open until ashes are completely cold. • Dispose of your ashes in a metal container with a lid. The ashes should cool for at least one week before they’re dumped. Place the container on a non-flammable surface, away from decks and siding while the ashes are cooling. • Remember that space heaters need space. They should be at least 3 feet from other objects and should be turned off when you’re not in the room. • If you use a generator during power outages make sure it’s in a well ventilated area outside. Never use

• Trees should not block your exits and should be at least 3 feet from any heat source. • Use only decorative lights with the label of an independent testing laboratory. Replace strings of lights that have broken or worn cords, or broken bulb connections. Connect no more than three strands of mini-lights and a maximum of 50 bulbs for screwin bulbs. • Don’t overload electrical outlets or extension cords. • Always turn off your Christmas lights before leaving the room or going to bed. • Remember that smoke alarms save lives. We recommend an alarm be installed on each level of the home and in each sleeping area. Test them once a month.

The worst gifts and how to fix it no special requests.

I

’m willing to bet that every husband or lovesick boyfriend has seen the look. Your wife or girlfriend opens the gift and it is there. It’s the “you don’t know anything do you” look. Try as we always do or pretend to, all too often we make the classic Christmas morning mistake. Only the well practiced hangdog look of the male loser saves us. We all began learning this technique at a very early age. Men take note. The following may save your life this Christmas. The following list is from women in Kitsap County in response to being asked what is the worst gift they’ve received and what they really wanted. We’ve withheld the names to protect the guilty men who have endured a very chilly Christmas. Guys, while you may not be able to get her exactly what she wanted, our best advice is to listen a little harder for the hints she’ll drop about all the things she would love to have. Most importantly, if you waited until the last minute to get her that gift, she may enjoy it

No. 12 Worst Gift: An exercise outfit and tennis shoes. Want: I want my bills paid. No. 13 Worst Gift: Hmmmm. A toaster. Want: I want jewelry! No. 14 Worst Gift: A pair of slippers. Want: If he were paying attention, he would get me a fountain pen.

just as much... if it is the right one.

No. 1 Worst Gift: Really cheap perfume, ‘Wildfire’ or something like that. You could smell it through the box. Want: I really want a new sautee pan. No. 2 Worst Gift: Aplets & Cotlets. Want: World peace. No. 3 Worst Gift: A mechanical engineering book

can be done in tactful and polite ways where you don’t cause hurt feelings but also get your needs met. If you are not comfortable with the thought of refusing well-meaning offers, you may have to think of a standard excuse that sticks. If all else fails, say you are allergic against this, that and the other. Most people will respect that and pity you instead. Some folks hope to escape extra weight gain by skipping meals before it’s time to party. Disrupting your usual eating patterns, however, will only make you more vulnerable to the temptations you are about to encounter. So don’t fast before you feast! Rather eat a small but nutritious snack shortly before your event starts, so you don’t arrive absolutely ravenous. Be mindful that, although food is at the center of many celebrations (not only for us but in many cultures around the world), we also celebrate each other’s company. The holiday season is often a time for family reunions. Your loved ones will appreciate hearing that you missed them and that you had been looking forward to seeing them – whether you eat lots of food or not. Your reconnecting with one another can take place on a deeper level. Having said that, I also want to emphasize the social aspect of healthy eating. One of my favorite diets is the so-called “Mediterranean diet,” which is widely praised for its dominance of

fresh vegetables, fruits, seafood and its restrained use of meat and poultry. One essential element, however, remains too often overlooked – that is the Mediterranean way of life. The Mediterranean culture is well known for its appreciation of a leisurely lifestyle. Families love to gather around the dinner table where they spend long hours eating together. Belonging and sharing each other’s company are as important as the food that is served. Everyone across the generations is included. Weather permitting, the furniture gets dragged outside in the courtyard where friends and neighbors join in without explicit invitation. The eating goes on and on, and yet there are few signs of obesity and other dietrelated health issues. One of the reasons may be that people take the time to enjoy both food and company, which is what all celebrations should be about. Happy Holidays!
