Reflections and Resources for Your Christmas Season

A collection of articles to see you through the holiday season

For many of us, the Christmas holidays are a time to relax and reflect on another year’s passing. However, it’s a time laden with so much expectation and tradition that some can struggle. For those who find the holiday season tough going, please hang on in there. And reach out for help if you need it. Better days are coming.

I’ve written a few articles for Make Use Of that may be of help to you through the season.

Mental Health Support

For those who are battling mental health issues, here are some ways to cope with anxiety and depression during the holiday season. And here are some sources of instant help if you suffer panic attacks.

Gifts for Bookworms

If you’re a bookworm, or trying to think of gifts for the booklover in your life, here are lots of ideas and inspiration. And yes – there are lots of last-minute options included! If you’re shopping for a Kindle, I’ve taken a look at the differences between the new Kindle Scribe and Kindle Oasis, to help you make your choice.

Audio Inspiration for Christmas

Finally, if you need a break from Slade and Mariah, and you’re allergic to Cliff Richard, my brother John compiled this brilliant Christmas playlist for Violette Records, which is well worth a listen and pays tribute to the wonderful Mimi Parker from Low.

There are some fantastic Christmas audiobooks to listen to, and you can also try these great Christmas podcasts to get you in the festive spirit.

Have a Happy and Restful Christmas

Whatever you’re doing to mark the Christmas holidays and the end of 2022, I wish you a restful and peaceful time.

Thank you to anyone who has read my work this year.

Very best wishes,
