December 27th - 31st Twixtmas 5 days to change your world!

You have heard of Christmas and New Year? But what do you call the period in-between?

Welcome to the five days of Twixtmas where you are being encouraged to make the most of this valuable time.

Help spread health and wellbeing this Twixtmas 

The five days of Twixtmas fall between Christmas and New Year when many people have time off work – a perfect opportunity to think differently and do something for the better. 

Each day encourages people to be proactive and make the most of this valuable time, which can be a lonely or sad time for many. 

Collin Warren, Planning and Health Outcomes Programme Manager for NHS Lincolnshire said: “Ever feel as though there are not enough hours in the day? We can all feel like that sometimes, but this a rare opportunity when many will have time to spare. And Twixtmas is the perfect opportunity to stop, relax and do something for yourself and others. 

"Unfortunately, Christmas can be a stressful or lonely time of year when people worry about money or miss loved ones. We want people to do something a little different this year to help spread a little happiness - why not have a happy Twixtmas?”

Spend a few hours relaxing; take a bath, have a long walk, listen to your favourite music. Whatever makes you happy!
