“Be especially mindful during the holiday season; mindfulness helps minimize Chronic Cough flare-ups that can be aggravated by holiday landmines” advises Dr. Mandel Sher.
Holiday festivities can be too much of a good thing and aggravate your Constant Cough. Family, Friends, Food, and Fun – Cough-Cough-Cough. Each year, Dr. Mandel Sher reminds his Cough patients to be particularly mindful during the holiday season. To be mindful, Dr. Sher recommends really focusing and making mindful choices. For example, appreciating the color and texture of your holiday meals, slowly chewing and tasting each bite, and sipping rather than gulping beverages. Dr. Mandel Sher, Cough Expert, explains to Cough patients:
“Being mindful is beneficial all of the time and particularly so when there are lots of distractions that can divert attention from routine and discipline. Your Constant Cough can be aggravated during the holiday season by: Overeating, Caffeine, Alcohol, Talk-Talk-Talk, “Relaxed” medication regimen, Viruses transmitted through Hugs and Handshakes, and Cold air and home heat that can be drying.Being Mindful will help you minimize your cough-cough-cough mood buster and enhance your holiday enjoyment. Sip-sip-sip, Eat smaller portions, Keep moving, & B-R-E-A-T-H-E.”
