Coping This Christmas | How To Help Those Alone

How to Help Those Alone

Christmas is going to be different for a lot of us this year, but together we can help each other through it!

Get Some Fresh Air

One way to cope with being alone on Christmas is to head out of the house for some one-on-one time with nature. Instead of spending the entire day at home, try to find something that you can do that fits with your mindset and mental state for the day. Many people tend to find the outdoors peaceful and relaxing, take the dog out for a walk, dogs are a wonderful company and can really brighten up your day! Don’t have a dog? Not to worry! Exercise alone gets your endorphins going and we guarantee that the feeling of getting back into the house after a lovely Christmas walk with a big cup of eggnog, a Christmas movie or a puzzle will feel just bliss!

Host A Virtual Christmas

With the current climate, online videos are becoming an increasingly popular way to stay in contact with your family and friends. Why not host or participate in a virtual Christmas via skype, zoom, or even facetime? Not only is it a great way to stay in touch with family and friends, you can drop in and out as you please and the best part is you don’t have to cook, clean or even move off the sofa!

Enjoy Solitude

If being alone at Christmas is inevitable, try to plan a day for yourself, that way you have something to look forward to! Buy yourself a little treat online, indulge, it’s Christmas after all! Cook your favourite foods and plan a Christmas movie marathon!

What To Do If You’re Having Difficulty Coping

If you are really struggling with being alone at Christmas, reach out for help! Always remember that you are not alone! Call a friend, family member or a helpline. If you just fancy a chat, there are plenty of people on the other end of the phone.
