Even though the holidays are lots of fun, they can sometimes cause a bit of a strain on the body too! With so much hustle, bustle and activity during the holidays, there are all kinds of ways to end up stiff and sore. Even when getting ready for the big day, my muscles were aching after days of running up and down the stairs carrying presents to put under the tree. And that’s just the start of the aches and pains you could face over the holidays! Rub A535 knows how irritating muscle pain can be, and they have a few ideas of their own about the aches and pains you might have encountered over the holidays:
- You hoped for a white Christmas all month, but now that you’ve gotten one, you have to spend two hours shoveling to get the car out of the driveway. Ouch!
- You lugged 30 pounds of holiday shopping bags around the mall for four hours because you couldn’t find the perfect gift for (insert impossible to buy-for relative here).
- The acrobatics of retrieving gifts from various clever hiding places, most of them high up or down low so your sneaky family can’t find them.
- You proudly served a turkey the size of a small automobile on a single platter, and then had to hold it aloft for ten minutes so photos could be taken.
- Tripping over sprawled-out loved-ones as they recover from food-coma.
- The in-laws are coming over to admire the décor and enjoy/judge your cooking. Outwardly, you are calm and collected but if there was any more tension in your shoulders, they would be touching your ears.
- You are spending the holidays away from home, but your bags (and all of the presents you brought) haven’t made it to your destination.
