Christmas can be a difficult time for many, not having people around to share it with and feeling lonely.

Finances can also be a worry, having to visit people you may not wish to see and having additional demands on your time, all can contribute to low mood, stress and isolation.

Here are some helpful tips to see you through the festive period:

– Talk to people about money worries and set expectations

– Look for free community events locally to attend

– Consider purchasing used items, there are some quality used gifts out there

– Be kind to yourself

– Avoid comparing your Christmas to others

– Take some time for yourself

– Set boundaries, you can say no
