What to do at Christmas after divorce or a breakup…

Christmas can have a way of tugging at your heart strings even if you are not a lover of all things ho ho ho. It’s a time for family, friends and celebrating spiritual and emotional blessings.

So what do you do when all of these things feel precarious and you are sad and vulnerable?  Christmas can feel like salt in the wound.

It can still be a great day

But it doesn’t have to be a terrible day. It’s just a day after all!  If you are not particularly religious and do not celebrate Christmas from a Christian point of view, then you can take whatever meaning you like from 25th December.

If you have kids, then hopefully you will be spending some time with them over the festive period so you can enjoy celebrating your family then.

And if you can’t be with them in-person perhaps you can arrange a call (video call is better) and even plan some interaction with them for that brief time to make it extra special.

The holiday season is a time of joy and celebration, but it’s easy to slip into unhealthy habits amid the festivities. Here are five tips to help you take care of yourself and make the most of this special time.

1. Nourish Your Body and Mind:

During the holidays, prioritize self-care by being mindful of what you eat. Even if you opt for ready-made meals, add fresh vegetables and fruits to your plate. Remember, vitality comes from within, so make choices that nourish both your body and mind. Whether it’s a brisk walk or deep breathing exercises, find ways to keep your blood pumping and maintain a sense of freshness and vitality.

2. Declutter and Take Control:

Use the holiday period as an opportunity to declutter your life. Review your wardrobe and let go of items that no longer suit you. Creating physical and mental space gives you a sense of control over your environment. Taking charge of your surroundings can be empowering, allowing you to start the new year with a refreshed perspective.

3. Reconnect with Loved Ones:

Reach out to old connections during this time of year. Sending a heartfelt message to someone you haven’t spoken to in a while can be a wonderful gesture. Additionally, consider resolving misunderstandings with current connections. Christmas is a season of goodwill, making it an idealtime to extend an apology and seek forgiveness.

4. Volunteer and Spread Cheer:

Embrace the spirit of giving by volunteering your time. Whether it’s spending a few hours at a children’s home, helping at a homeless shelter, or assisting in hospitals, there are countless opportunities to make a positive impact. Consider participating in programs that connect you with elderly individuals who may be feeling lonely during the holidays. A small act of kindness can be life-changing.

5. Cultivate Creativity and Reconnect with Your Inner Child:

Explore new hobbies that feed your creativity. Rather than setting rigid New Year’s resolutions, focus on doing activities that bring you joy. Reconnect with the uninhibited creativity of your inner child. Rediscover the pleasure of doing things simply for the fun of it, without fear of judgment. This holiday season, give yourself the gift of time for activities that truly inspire your soul.

As you navigate through the festivities, remember that small, heartfelt gestures can have a profound impact. Whether it’s nurturing your well-being, reconnecting with loved ones, or spreading joy through volunteering, the true essence of the holiday season lies in the spirit of giving and connection.

Take control of the day

Whatever you do, take control of the day and make it what you want it to be.  You pick the films, the meals, the entertainment, the location.  It is just a day and it will pass.  And it might just be really nice!
