Grief resources provide help during the holidays During the holiday season, many of us will gather with family and friends to celebrate long-kept traditions and reminisce of days gone by. Sometimes, these other- wise joyful gatherings are tinged with sadness as families struggle to deal with the loss of a loved one. To help people cope with grief, CentraCare Health System has launched the "Grief & Bereave- ment Services" on its Web site. The Grief & Bereavement Ser- vices Web section offers support to those who are grieving, and it also provides information about how to help someone who has experi- enced a loss. Topics include: What is grief; Myths & facts about grief; Life after a loss; When to seek help; A guide for survivors; and Additional grief resources are listed. "Grief is individual and inti- mate; everyone experiences grief differently. CentraCare wants to offer a grief and bereavement resource which anyone could access at anytime to help them through a difficult time," said Mary Eisenschenk, Community Outreach Nurse, St. Cloud Hospi- tal Home Care and Hospice Ser- vices.

M N we can fit traditional family holi- day events into our already busy lives. Sometimes we find ourselves exhausted as well as a few extra pounds heavier because we get fraz- zled at this time of year. Consider these ideas to help you stay on track. Try to keep your everyday rou- tine on track as much as possible and you'll be less likely to gain weight dur- ing the holidays. A study done by the National Institute of Health found that American aduks gain an average of 0.4 to 1.8 pounds each year between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day. If you can't fit in your usual exercise routine, modify it, and just do some- thing. Exercise is a stress reducer all by itself as well as an important part of a healthy lifestyle. Whether or not you currently have an exercise routine, walking is always a good choice and doesn't require special gear other than good shoes. Go to the mall early and start your shopping trip with a brisk walk before you're weighed down with packages. Twenty min- utes of walking can burn 100 cal- ories for a 150-pound person. That translates into an hour of brisk walking to burn the calories in a slice of pumpkin pie. All those festive get-togethers that include food, and typically lots of it, can contribute unwanted pounds. Set a few ground rules for yourself. Don't skip meals or go For more Information: Joyee Ouast, you to bring something to share, choose a healthy dish. You can count on plenty of other fun foods already there. Eat at a location away from the buffet table to avoid the temptation of refilling your plate. Remember that it's the first few bites that taste the best. Plan ahead whenever you can. Look to see how many days or hours are required for your turkey to thaw completely. A friend shared her dis- appointment with me when she dis- covered she had served a beautiful golden roasted turkey that was still frozen on the inside. To ensure this doesn't happen to you, check out tips from the U of MN website, <www. nutrition/turkey.html>. If you've been asked to donate cookies, select a favorite holiday recipe, make two batches at once, and place the second batch in the freezer to share with friends and family. Put your dinner in the Crockpot to cook all day while you're shopping. That way you can come home to a prepared meal, rather just grabbing a quick and unhealthy convenience food. Since we spend more time in the grocery store over the holiday season shopping for ingredients for special recipes, take the oppor- tunity to stock up on fresh fruits and veggies to keep on hand for snacking instead of always reach- Add the word "simplify" to your holiday vocabulary. Look for ways to reduce or simplify the tradi- tional events and activities. Foi instance, consider assembling make-ahead meals to keep in your freezer. The process usually only requires a few hours of your time, is reasonably priced com- pared to eating out, and saves lots of time when you factor in menu planning, grocery shopping, food preparation and clean up. When you just can't figure out how to fit in that last task on yore to-do list, consider eliminating it. Striving for perfection often is the root of stress. It's okay not to make all the varieties of holiday cook- ies you usually do. Purchased yeas! rolls can substitute for homemade rolls and save you time. Ask thos coming to your party or holiday din- ner to bring a favorite dish. They'l probably be excited to share! Finally, consider planning a little extra in your holiday budget to pam- per yourself to minimize the fraz- zle factor. Find time for your exercise sessions to help keep you on track. The important thing is to keep every- thing in perspective. Make camara- derie more important than the per- fect menu, gift or decoration.
