Top tips for looking after your mental health at Christmas

The festive season is a time of joy and spending time with loved ones but it can also be one of the most stressful periods of the year.

During this period it is important to try and remember to look after your mental health and well being.

We have been thinking about how much more readily we complain about the negative things in life and yet, what a warm glow can be created by the simple act of saying something positive. Talking with someone can be good for our health and the health of others. Face-to-face communication has been shown to improve our mental health and physical well-being as this interaction produces the hormone, oxytocin, which can benefit our immune system, heart health and cognitive function.

There is nothing better than catching up with someone face-to-face, but that’s not always possible. Give them a call, drop them a note or chat to them online instead. Keep the lines of communication open – it’s good for you! Tell loved ones how much we love and appreciate them – how special they are to us and what joy they bring. For some, this may be a much-needed boost to their self-esteem, and even if it’s not strictly needed, we all feel better for being appreciated.

If you are feeling out of touch with some people, Christmas can be a good opportunity to reconnect with a card, email or phone call. If something is worrying you, whether it is work, family or other feelings, just being listened to can help you feel supported and less alone. It works both ways: if you open up, it might encourage others to do the same and get something off their mind.
