#XmasAutisticLifeHacks – It’s okay to say “no”

Christmas party decorations

In the first of our #XmasAutisticLifeHacks series, our Peer Development Worker Gill Loomes has her way of coping with all the party invitations she receives during this time of year. Here is what she wrote:

“It’s easy to burn yourself out with social demands, or feel that you have to be out doing things because It’s Christmas/New Year. But it’s a good idea to practise declining invitations (“Oh, that’s a lovely offer, but…”), or to just go to things for a little while.

“And, there’s nothing “sad” about curling up at home on your own with your cat, food and drink of your choice, and a good book/film!”
