July 1, 2019
This week, the United States will celebrate its 243rd birthday, and many of its residents will be enjoying the celebration right alongside it. If you have a chronic illness, holidays can seem complicated. But if you use our strategies, you’ll be able to have a grand ol’ time celebrating the grand ol’ flag this year.
Watch a Fireworks Display
One of the easiest and prettiest ways to enjoy a 4th of July celebration is to check out a fireworks display. Most towns have free fireworks displays viewable from a variety of locations, sometimes even from your own backyard! Otherwise, find a spot with a good view, bring some lawn chairs, healthy snacks, and relax. If heat is a concern, find a place to park and enjoy the show from the comfort of your air-conditioned car. If you’d rather celebrate Independence Day from the comfort of your own home, check your local listings for Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks special.
Bring the Celebration to You with a Potluck
If the idea of what might be served at a holiday gathering makes you apprehensive, try hosting a potluck for your friends and family. You’ll be able to serve foods you are comfortable with in your own home and your guests will bring new dishes you might enjoy too. If your friends ask for ideas of what to bring, it’s a bonus opportunity to request dishes that are friendly for your diet. Prepare a few dishes ahead of time to ensure a stress free 4th of July holiday.
Enjoy the Holiday
The most important takeaway from any holiday is to enjoy relaxing and spending time with friends and family. Do your best to not push yourself and ask for help preparing as you need. If you do experience a frustrating flare-up, remind yourself to prioritize your health and always be prepared to handle it. The 4th of July can be celebrated however you choose, as long as you have a little fun doing so.
