Alienated Children First Christmas Message for Alienated Mothers & Fathers by Lisa Avery

Things to do for YOU
● Treat yourself to your favourite – music – food – film – book-
● Zoom or Ring a Friend — a Relative or someone on Social Media – have one person already prepared to be your support person when times get tough. It has to be someone that will listen and support you, not give you a lecture on what you should or shouldn’t do!
● Go for a walk, run, cycle, or drive
● Do your favourite hobby, exercise or crafts

TALK · Talk with a co-worker – · Talk with a stranger, and · Talk with a family member

DO Whatever will make you feel good, is good for you

Things to do for OTHERS
Volunteering and helping neighbours is a great way to positise others and your own life – you can do this locally or online – choose an issue you are interested in and contact an organisation that appeals to you that needs support in their work. To find a role or organisation – www.volunteer.ie/
