As we approach shorter, darker days and more time is spent indoors it can impact on one’s
health and wellbeing negatively. For example, some people who live alone may experience
a deep sense of loneliness during the cold winter months leading to uncertainty, anxiety
and lack of self-worth and motivation. Especially as there is the additional challenge of
restrictions put in place by government this winter to stop the spread of coronavirus, which
could mean families and friends are kept apart and people living alone will have less human
contact. Hence, it’s important to look after yourself and wrap up warmly, as the cold winter
weather can be more harmful than you think, especially for the elderly or vulnerable.
