Have a thought for someone this Christmas
Published 15/12/2015 | 00:00
Christmas is a fantastic time of year, full of excitement, joy and wonder-and not just for the little people.
There are many adult children out there too! But not everyone gets excited about Christmas.
Some people simply do not like this time of year and wonder what all the fuss is about. Many find it very lonely. Perhaps they have lost someone they love through bereavement or separation, making Christmas a very sad and lonely time.
It's meant to be a lovely family time, a time of fun and happiness. But for some, family is the last place that they are able to be. Homesickness, financial difficulty, and health problems are all stressful situations at this time of year.
Make some time this month to think about the people around you, maybe step into their shoes for a moment. It can be human contact a voice, a hug, a listening ear, a smiling face. It doesn't have to cost money to help someone bare their burden and to help them to smile.
Maybe a neighbour needs something collected from the shop, or a lift somewhere. A parent might need someone to watch their children for a few minutes so that they can have a minute to collect their thoughts. A friend might need your support going to a festive event, one that they cannot face otherwise. Maybe you have a spare seat at your table for a lonely soul this Christmas.
And sometimes a simple remedy can help you cope with these difficult times. Rescue Remedy is one such remedy; it can help calm the excited child or the stressed parent. It can help you cope with bereavement and loss. And can help you deal with separation and loneliness due to a relationship breakdown, illness, or because miles are keeping you apart. It contains Star of Bethlehem which can help soothe the sorrows of your heart and helping you to cope a little better.
If you can't sleep due to stress and worry you could try Rescue Remedy Night which includes White Chestnut. This remedy helps to switch off worrying thoughts, and thoughts that keep going round and round your head keeping you awake.
Thank you all for your lovely comments throughout the year. I wish you all a Happy Christmas and New Year.
