Keeping Mentally Busy This Christmas

Xmas alone

Christmas. Most love it, some don’t. Make sure these five tips are followed to keep yourself busy, especially if traveling solo anytime this season.


There is a lot to be said for giving up your time, even more so at this time of the year. There are many charities that would love your time this fall. The Salvation Army, Oxford street run a Christmas dinner service. Or why not hand out toys to the children’s ward at the local hospitals? There are plenty of events on Facebook this December.

Buddy Up

Travelling alone can takes its toll, Christmas and being away from home is not exception. There are plenty of social events leading up to December 25th, including professional networks.

The Health & Wellbeing Hub, University of Southampton, offers you the chance to make connections and bag a mince pie in the process.

Or find out who near you is elderly and on their own this Christmas. You will make somebody’s day.


The ‘e’ word at this time of year often gets parked into a sweaty locker until January. By taking a walk, jog or making the most of our stunning location on the south coast, thirty minutes a day is perfect for the mind and body.

Netflix and Spill

Whether you are using the finest of our in-house entertainment systems or downloading to your tablet, you will get the chance to watch Elf (December 16th, ITV BTW) whilst supping on a nice glass of something bubbly.
