How To Cope With Holiday Stress & Depression & Colorectal Cancer

If you're lonely... get busy. Consider volunteering.

Next » « Previous


Holidays traditionally involve gathering with family and friends. If the family is small or distance separates, being alone does not mean being lonely.

Keeping in mind your own abilities, become active to the extent you can and consider the following ideas to help keep yourself busy:

 Volunteer at Church or any of numerous organizations that provide holiday cheer to the less fortunate.  Help gather toys for underprivileged children.  Volunteer to provide transportation for Church services or holiday events.  Giving back is a great way to lighten your load.

If you can’t be with your own family, visit a local nursing home and spread some good cheer.  Raising others’ holiday spirit will certainly boost your own.

Start a new hobby or get lost in an old favorite.

Get in touch with someone you haven’t seen in a long time.

If you're single, seek out venues where singles gather, such as a church sponsored event. Check out travel packages for single people.

Be part of the activities at the local community center or senior center.
