New Year's Eve is just around the corner, and as the champagne flows and music blasts, it's also very important to keep the health consequences and safety risks to a minimum while you're out and about partying and celebrating and ringing in the decade. 

Here are a few things to keep in the back of your mind...


Walking to the party in heels? It's no secret that you are at a much higher risk of slipping during the winter months. If you happen to slip and fall, try to protect your arms and head first by falling on your side or butt. Stay on the ground to relax and evaluate what injuries you may have. If severe, of course, call 911 for help. Don't forget, if you are on blood thinners, get to an emergency room ASAP to check for internal bleeding.

Think drinking will keep you warm? Think again! Drinking causes dilation of your blood vessels, which will make you feel warmer, but actually promotes heat loss. Although drinking responsibly can be fun, don't make the mistake of relying on alcohol to combat the cold weather.

Champagne, wine, liquor or beer? Remember that hard liquor has more alcohol in it than beer, malt liquor, or wine. These drink sizes have about the same amount of alcohol in them: 12 ounces of regular beer, 8-9 ounces of malt liquor, 5 ounces of wine, 1 ½ ounces of hard liquor. Choose wisely! 

Have fun, stay safe, and feel good this New Year's Eve!
