5 Kitchen Hacks for Arthritis This Christmas
Christmas time is a wonderful time of year. We get the chance to connect with family and friends that we wouldn’t necessarily see that often, enjoy mountains of sweet treats and get to relax after a busy year. What we forget some times is that Christmas can also be a very busy and possibly stressful time of year. We’re all getting ready for the big dinner, wrapping presents, giving the house its big Christmas clean so we can eventually relax.
