Struggling to feel festive this Christmas?

15 Dec 2017 14:46

Hi all,

How are you feeling about the upcoming festivities?

The Christmas holidays can be an emotional time for some of us, whether due to a cancer diagnosis, tiring treatments, or the loss of a loved-one.

I often think the old advice of ‘keeping busy’ helps, but I also like to take quiet moments to reflect at this time of year, too. How about you?

We’ve got some info on our site about Coping with special occasions. Please do share any tips and traditions you have as well – from taking time for a nap, to honouring the people you love that are no longer with us.

Thanks,

Helen
