Money saving tips from our 2023 low-cost Christmas advent calendar

We are often in such a rush to get everything ready for the big day that it’s easy to forget about our mental health and wellbeing over the festive season. Christmas can be stressful at the best of times but trying to make it perfect with the cost of nearly everything going up can feel overwhelming. Worrying about money can really impact your mental health and sense of wellbeing.

Christmas is also a time when we are expected to be happy; to join in with things we might be trying to leave behind or don’t feel up to being part of. If you live alone, or you have lost someone close to you, Christmas doesn’t seem like such a merry time. People with depression, or those with relationship or substance misuse issues often find the festive season particularly difficult to cope with.
