Have a happy, safe holiday

11th December, 2020

For many the holiday period can be a fun filled array of travel, family time and festivities, but for others it can be stressful, overwhelming and lonely.

In an effort to keep those around you happy and safe:

  • Be kind to your neighbours and look out for people who could be sad – a little homemade card can make someone feel they have not been forgotten
  • Eat healthily – fresh berries and BBQ veggies are cheap and delicious
  • Drink as much water as you do alcohol, it’s easy to drink too much – unfortunately mistakes & injuries are common after a few too many
  • Be creative with presents, gorgeous things do not have to be expensive – it’s the thought that counts
  • Take a walk or have a swim at our beautiful beach
  • Watch the children around you when playing in or near water – it only takes a second for a little one to get into trouble
  • Offer sunscreen to others and be a good example by covering up in the sun – Slip, Slop, Slap!
  • Try not to get stressed and angry, family violence is common around Christmas time – get help before it gets out of hand
  • Make sure you have enough medication to get you through the holiday period
