Decide on one single task and try to accomplish it over the holidays.  This could be anything, from cleaning the kitchen cabinets to organizing the garage or the family photo albums. How about creating a family photo album, which shares memories from all those wonderful years of childhood? Even if you don’t have photo albums, you can arrange your family’s photos by placing them in various shoe boxes. To add color, wrap the boxes in colored wrapping paper.

Not to mention the calories that are consumed by each shot of vodka that you take. Roughly speaking, there are around 55 calories in a single vodka shot, 170 calories in a stout pint. Apart from all the healthy talk, alcohol and drugs make your food judgments hazy as well.  You end up eating the exact opposite of what you should ear, which results in throwing up, or passing out.
