TAKE CARE OF THE BLOAT

Naturally Healthy

Take care of the Bloat.
We know! We know! Not the most upbeat, Christmassy way to start a blog. We also know that we’ll be feeling the effects of filling ourselves from the fluffy tufts of our Santa hats to the ends of our mistletoes. We’re talking, of course, of the dreaded but inevitable Christmas and Boxing Day bloat. Urrrrgh.
Let’s start by giving ourselves and our loved ones the OK to go a little overboard these holidays. There’s ways to turn the yuletide on feeling full. As bloating is a gut-related condition we’ll focus on how your gut can beat the bloat.

Mask wearing

Rae from Chartwell

This one goes out to the not inconsiderable number of people in places where masks are required, wearing them incorrectly, ie not covering their noses.
Please note, pretty much everyone does not particularly like having to wear a mask, but we do it, and we definitely have a good deal of sympathy for those serving us who have to keep them on for their entire shift whereas we are probably in their place of business less than half an hour.
At the very, very least would you please show a bit of respect for those behind the counter and wear your mask correctly.
Don't think because no-one pulls you up, that no-one wants to, I know I have to bite my tongue.
