Spread visits over a longer period or explain time constraints to family and friends to release pressure

Keep to a sensible budget and don’t try to match-spend when present buying

If you feel pressure to attend parties/get togethers that may trigger social anxiety – then take a step back and look after yourself, close friends/family will already know this about you 

Consider checking in on your neighbours – they might be grateful to see a friendly face

Eat and drink and be merry, but try to keep it in moderation

Catch a quiet moment with yourself to gather your thoughts and relax

Try getting some time outside- go for a walk but make sure to wrap up warm!

Keep to routines if these are part of your coping strategies
