Ashgate Hospice > Top tips for coping with Christmas

Tim Wheeler, Spiritual Care Practitioner at Ashgate Hospice, spoke to a number of people at Ashgate Hospice to find out what their top tips are for dealing with Christmas. Check out his video below.

Here’s five top tips on coping with Christmas:

  1. Be honest with yourself. What do YOU want to do this Christmas?
  2. Location, location, location. Where do YOU want to be this Christmas? Who do YOU want to be with?
  3. Lower your expectations. Don’t put too much pressure on yourself.
  4. Make a plan. Plan the activities YOU want to do.
  5. Make new traditions – or you can keep old routines. The choice is YOURS.
