It is a true epidemic, which attacks specifically during this season and from which we are very little saved.
Do not waste your time! That word is not in the dictionary. You will not find it. Because although everyone suffers from it at a certain time of year and each identifies it with a different ailment, in reality it is only a seasonal epidemic.
Christmasitis is a disease that strikes at the end of November and disappears at the beginning of January (although for some it lasts until the end of that month). And it is not a simple ailment, but a whirlwind of suffering that rages on the Easter days.
So far no vaccine has been invented against this condition, therefore, no one is immunized and everyone gets it. Of course, there are some remedies that can help you cope with this tremendous accumulation of ailments, such as insomnia, depression, stomach disorders, muscle aches.
Insomnia from the "lists"
The list of cards, gifts, invitations, decorations, meals, becomes a true obsession, which increases at night, while we count sheep, trying to fall asleep and for now, we remember that we have to add something that we forgot in one of the "lists". For this reason, in order not to make mistakes in the number of sheep (and avoid a "list" of lost sheep, because the one that is born for ... the lists fall from the sky "), early at night, when the tasks of the day are finished, sit down and make a list of the things you have to do the next day.
Then keep that relationship, remember the matter no more and sleep peacefully in the arms of Morpheus.

If your depression exceeds the limits of December, ask for help.
The stomach protests.

Voice of thunder.
Why? Most likely, you have talked too much during these days, or that the cold night air, being near the beach, or all things together, have affected your vocal cords.

After Christmas Eve and New Years Eve, the symptoms intensify so it is better to be safe than sorry. Greetings ... Merry Christmas.
