To the Christmas/New Year issue of Ballincollig Health & Wellbeing. It is a beautiful time of year, with the build up to Christmas starting, with the twinkling lights brightening the dark evenings and the cosy warm fires and the new start to another year to follow. However, it is a time also that can be quite difficult for many. Maybe due to losing a loved one, or the stress of money pressures, or loneliness, or ill-health. It is a time for us all to remember those that may need some help, support or just some company. The season of giving does not need to be of material gifts; what we can offer by taking the time for somebody else is far more valuable.
Our feature this month is “Surviving the Silly Season”; we provide you with ideas and strategies on how to make Christmas and the build up to it more manageable, enjoyable and healthy.
This time of year is about enjoying ourselves, sharing the company of others and looking forward to the fresh start of the new year. It is a time to take stock and think about how to make improvements where needed. All too often though we make “resolutions” to change many things…but all too often these don’t last. Caring for our health is something that needs ongoing attention and focus and done in a holistic way. We hope we have empowered you to take small steps to improve your mental, physical and emotional health and wellbeing across the entire year
