If all you want for Christmas is for your family to have a healthier relationship with technology, help is here
Decorations are going up – and so are stress levels – as we get to grips with a Covid Christmas. We might like to imagine we’ll be spending quality time at home singing carols, baking mince pies and playing charades, but when traditional activities are competing with the lure of Fortnite battles and an evening chatting with schoolfriends online, how do we hold on to the magic of a family Christmas?
“It’s all about getting your priorities straight. What does Christmas really mean to you?” asks psychologist Dr Sarita Robinson from the University of Central Lancashire. “There’s no point building up a perfect image of what you ‘should’ be doing. Especially now, with Covid, we have to keep things fluid and remember the importance of having fun and being in the moment with our loved ones.”
