Binge eating
The primary focus of the festive season for most people is food. With all the delicious and indulgent foods always at your fingertips, most people are likely to indulge in a little overeating during the festive season. However, binge eating can have horrific impacts on your health. Fortunately, there is a simple trick you can use to help you eat in moderation at the next Christmas party you attend. When you see a huge spread of delicious food picture yourself eating every single thing on the plate. Then when you sit down to eat you will be less likely to indulge. This is because the simple act of imagining yourself eating all of the food is enough to trigger the pleasure centers in your brain.

A large majority of people experience a sense of sadness and loss as the festive season creeps closer. Most people tend to assume that they are just suffering from a common bout of holiday blues. However, it is very important that you pay attention to your mental health over the festive season. If you suspect that you suffer from depression triggered by the holidays it is crucial that you speak out about it. Speak to one of your loved ones about how you are feeling, see a counselor or call a helpline if you feel like there is no other way out.

Alcohol abuse
When you go to a Christmas party it is highly likely that the wine and spirits will flow like water. Most people enjoy a responsible drink or two. However, there is something about the festive season that makes people feel like they have an excuse to indulge in as many drinks as they would like. Alcohol abuse during the festive season is linked to countless deaths due to drinking and driving accidents. Additionally, binge drinking over the Christmas season can do significant damage to your liver and kidneys. Finally, the excessive drinking over the festive season could potentially lead to long-term alcohol abuse and alcoholism.

Turkey accidents
There is nothing better than a beautifully cooked turkey taking center stage on your Christmas table. However, did you know that that turkey could be posing a serious risk to your health? Turkey is one of the key culprits responsible for causing food poisoning during the festive season. Make sure that your turkey is thoroughly defrosted before you cook it so that it can cook through all the way. Additionally, you should never wash a turkey before cooking it so that you do not spread bacteria around. If you plan on deep frying your turkey you should take extra care to make sure that it is completely defrosted. There have been thousands of instances of turkeys exploding when placed in the deep fryer. This is incredibly dangerous as the force of the explosion will send scalding oil and turkey debris flying into your face.

House fires
The festive season is one of the times of the year that sees the most house fires. This is because most people enjoy lighting candles or use faulty Christmas lights that send out sparks and light fires. Make sure that you use Christmas lights that are not faulty and are fully operational. Christmas lights are especially dangerous and cause a variety of other accidents in the home. Make sure that all cords are tied down and only fire up your Christmas lights when you are there to keep an eye on them. As for creating romantic candle lighting that will not cause your house to go up in flames make sure that there are no flammable obstructions close to the candles and never leave them unattended.
