Thanksgiving is almost here. Although some people don’t celebrate this holiday most of us do, about 90% of us according to recent surveys. If you are one of the 280 million people that are planning on doing so here are a few Thanksgiving numbers that you might find interesting.
46.9 Million The number of people that will travel 50 miles or more during the Thanksgiving holiday
5.5 The average number of hours it takes to prepare Thanksgiving dinner
4500 The average number of calories eaten throughout Thanksgiving Day
151 Million The number of people that plan to shop on Black Friday
All that to say that spending time with family and eating lots of delicious food it great, but it can take a toll on you. Many people report felling stressed during the holiday season. Massage has long been proven to lower stress levels and boost serotonin and oxytocin levels. (that equals relaxation) Plus, it never hurts to take a little time away for yourself.
