    Take care of yourself this Christmas

    Take care of yourself this Christmas

    We all recognise that Christmas and New Year are times of great celebration, providing people with an opportunity to come together, exchange gifts, share memories and show friends and family how important they are to us.

    However it is almost impossible to get through Christmas without experiencing some level of stress.

    For many, it can be a time that brings financial pressure, stress, loneliness and can remind us of sad times in our lives.

    There are practical steps which we can take all year round to look after our own and others’ mental health. They include:

    • Not over indulging
    • Taking time for relaxation
    • Fitting in time for some exercise, such as a gentle walk
    • If you can, try to be around other people
    Take care of yourself

    Self-care is an important step to help manage difficult feelings.

    When things seem a struggle, it’s understandable that bigger self-care tasks can be difficult. Things which may help to improve this include:

    • Trying to schedule activities and planning out the week, maybe breaking days into manageable sections.
    • Trying to think of things you should do to take care of yourself that you maybe haven’t had time to do recently, and ask yourself which of these are achievable.
    • Remember it is OK to start with small objectives and, when you feel more able, plan more challenging tasks.
    • Be kind to yourself. Self-compassion is important. We often have high expectations and feel frustrated if we don’t meet them.
    • Some days you may feel more capable and productive than others. At other times you may feel overwhelmed. This is OK and affects everyone at some point in their lives.
    • It is important to show yourself compassion and kindness. Be more forgiving of yourself when you feel overwhelmed. That way, you can get back to feeling better quicker.
    • It can be helpful to write down positive things about yourself when you feel good and then go back to them when you are having a tough day, to remember how good you can be.

    There is only one you. Take care of yourself.

    Tragically, almost one person every week dies by suicide in North Lanarkshire. Males between the ages of 34 and 54 are almost three times more likely to take their own lives.

    Keeping Christmas stress to a minimum
    • Aim for “enjoyable”, not “perfect”. Keep expectations for the holiday season manageable. Don’t try to make it perfect.
    • Recognise that being together 24/7 may cause tensions, and allow for this.
    • Minimise “are we nearly there yet?” issues when travelling. It is disappointing to make travel plans in order to promote family togetherness, only to get to the destination feeling stressed. Include pre-planned rest stops, drinks and snacks, music and books and lots of activities for the kids in the back. Travel off-peak if possible.
    • Plan out what you need to do over the festive season.
    • Make plans with services you are currently receiving, such as health and social care workers, support workers or peer supporters.
    • Find time for yourself. Don’t spend all your time providing activities for your family and friends. If you’re a parent, remember you need to have fun, and aim for a balance of activities that meets everyone’s needs.
    • Planning and teamwork. Involve the family in plans and in the workload, Children can have some say, and parents’ needs count as well.
    • Don’t try to do it all.

    Our advice is brought in conjunction with North Lanarkshire Council.

    If you’re reading this and feel low, we want you to know that everybody feels low sometimes.

    We all face difficult situations in our lives. That applies to everyone, whether they are our friends and family, supporters and even footballers.

    Suicide is not the answer. There is always another way. Help is available. You are not alone. We know it is not always easy to talk but you are contemplating this, please open up to someone.

    You can call the Samaritans on 116123, Breathing Space on 0800 838587 or Childline on 0800 1111. Further advice is also available from North Lanarkshire Suicide Prevention.

    1991 documentary to be aired in January

    1991 documentary to be aired in January

    A new documentary charting Motherwell’s 1991 Scottish Cup victory will be shown on BBC ALBA on Friday, 18 January at 9pm.

    Steelmen is the bittersweet story of life in the industrial Scottish town of Motherwell in the early 1990s. Providing a reflective insight into its community and society, the documentary is told through the football club’s Scottish Cup victory.

    In 1991, as the town of faced the crippling social, economic and cultural impact of the closure of the Ravenscraig steelworks, the Steelmen lifted the prestigious Scottish Cup for the first time in 39 years, the victory a glimmer of light in the ensuing darkness.

    The workers of Ravenscraig and the local community had a strong camaraderie, a characteristic shared by the squad.

    As the local industry was threatened and community morale crushed, a series of footballing highs provided a clink of light in what was a devastating period for the town.

    The film features Motherwell legends from the cup final victory, including captain Tom Boyd, Chris McCart, Ian Angus, Iain Ferguson, Luc Nijholt, Stevie Kirk and Jim Griffin, Ravenscraig steelworkers Donald Oliver and Kevin Harper, Motherwell club historian Keith Brown and Motherwell FC’s chief executive Alan Burrows. The story is enhanced visually by archive, memorabilia and drama reconstruction.

    Steelmen, produced by purpleTV for BBC ALBA, will air at 9pm on Friday 18 January.

    Play the Well Lottery and win hospitality

    Play the Well Lottery and win hospitality

    Our lottery scheme to help invest money in youth development and our academy has changed.

    Our new Well Lottery allows you the chance to win up to £25,000, while also continuing to back the future players of the club.

    Still priced at £1 per entry, our new  providers Unity will also offer up smaller prizes of £1,000 and £25.

    What’s more, if you sign up before Friday, 21 December, you can win hospitality for two to our Boxing Day with Kilmarnock.

    HOW TO JOIN THE NEW WELL LOTTERY

    To join the new Well Lottery, you can now choose one of the following options:

    • Fill in the lottery leaflet provided and return via the freepost address provided to Unity.
    • Download a lottery leaflet from the Well Lottery website and return to Unity by post.
    • Sign up online here.

    Once you have signed up, you will receive a letter welcoming you to the lottery which will tell you your lottery numbers. You will then be entered into the draw for as long as you wish to play.

    HOW DOES THE NEW WELL LOTTERY WORK?

    We have teamed up with Unity to run the Well Lottery. For as little as £1 per week, you’ll have the chance to win up to £25,000. At least 50p of every £1 played goes straight to youth development but most importantly, there are no ongoing costs to the club.

    HOW IS IT DIFFERENT TO THE OLD LOTTERY?

    New lottery numbers: Every player will be allocated a six-digit lottery number for every entry they wish to play. If you match your number with the winning number drawn on a Saturday in the correct sequence, you can win up to £25,000.

    Higher prize fund: Through Unity, we can now offer a higher weekly jackpot of £25,000, with smaller prizes of £1,000, £25 and five entries into the next draw on offer.

    More payment options: You can join the lottery by direct debit, credit card or cheque.

    Proceeds: Every £1 ticket gains Motherwell FC at least 50p towards the club’s youth development and academy programme.

    No change to the ticket price: It’s still £1 to play.

    WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?

    Every £1 is split three ways. At least 50p of every £1 comes straight to Motherwell FC, which is put towards the club’s youth Development and academy programme. The other 50p covers the cost of the administration of the lottery, and goes towards the fantastic prize fund.

    HOW DO I WIN?

    Every player of the new Well Lottery will be allocated a six-digit lottery number for every entry they wish to play. This idea is to match your number with the winning number that is drawn on a Saturday in the correct sequence. Every entry in the Unity lottery has an equal one in 63 chance of winning a prize.

    For example:

    325764 – random winning number

    326574 – your lottery number

    This is a three-number match, winning five entries into the next draw.

    HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE WON?

    Players are notified automatically, and prizes sent out by post, so you do not need to claim your prize. If you would like to check the winning number each week, these can be found on Unity’s website and here on the official Motherwell FC website.

    WHAT IS UNITY?

    Unity is a platform on which charities run their own fundraising lottery. It is run by an external lottery manager, Sterling Lotteries, who administer hundreds of charity lotteries for clients across the country.
