Christmas is a time of cheer,
Not for me I often hear.
Lot’s to do and people to see,
A thousand decorations to put on the tree.
The internet shopping til 3am,
Fall asleep, wake up… do the same again.
Searching for that present you just can’t find,
Naughty Santa for leaving it behind!
All that fussing for just one day,
Then you have to tidy up and throw all the rubbish away.
Coping at Christmas with a chronic illness or disability.
Christmas can be such a stressful time of year . Try and make it easier by writing lists,buying decent scissors to getting a decent tape dispenser for wrapping presents ,all these things make a big difference.
If you can wrap bit by bit then it’s not a massive chore last minute when you are exhausted.
If you have children dont forget to allow to pace for extra school Christmas activities too.
Ultimately remember it’s your Christmas and you can start your own family traditions for your special day. Get the kids involved. It may even provide some activities for you to do together on a wet afternoon leading up to the big day.
Try and enjoy ❄⛄🎄
