Wrapping gifts sitting on the floor is a strain on your neck and lower back. A wiser choice is to wear good shoes and stand on a mat in front of a countertop to do your wrapping chores (“Healthy You: Countdown to Christmas,” Better Homes and Gardens, Dec. 2007).
Since today is designated as “Wrap Happily” day on my healthy countdown calendar, I’m trying this as I wrap gifts. And since the word happy is part of the day’s exercise, Christmas music is playing and I’m singing along as I work.
I’ve been collecting blank rolls of white paper throughout the year. Add a simple rubber stamp and you’ve got an easy recipe for fun and unique Christmas wrapping paper.
