This weekend we celebrate Valentine's Day. A big part of the celebratory fun is sweets...candy, cupcakes, and the like. Some of us will receive a heart full of chocolates or treat ourselves to one, or to some of the other Valentine sweet goodies we see in the stores right now.
If you do overdo it, drink plenty of water. The eight glasses recommendation is fine, but do not substitute coffee or any other caffeinated beverage for water. That will only add to anxious feelings later on since caffeine is also in the chocolate goodies we will consume. Anxiety can trigger OCD symptoms. And that wouldn't be too much fun on Valentine's Day or the day after.
Wishing you a Happy Valentine's Day.
