Recent reports suggest that 3 in 10 Brits state that their mental health declines over the Christmas period. Many may suffer with anxiety or become overwhelmed during the chaotic holiday period.
However, with AI becoming increasingly immersed into the everyday lives of many, how may the bot be able to ease the stress of some festive tasks, and how many of us plan to turn to the bot for assistance in the lead up to the upcoming festive period?
Keen to learn more, the experts at prompt management tool, AIPRM, conducted a survey of 2,500 UK adults in a bid to discover more about how Brits plan to use AI to help with their mental health and ultimately make their Christmas to do lists more manageable.
- One in six Brits (15%) intend to use AI to plan their Christmas Day itinerary.
- A further one in six (14%) will use AI to write cards, emails, or Christmas greetings for loved ones.
- Nearly half (49%) of respondents stated they will be using AI this Christmas due to its time saving benefits.
- Over a third (35%) of Brits will use AI due to their curiosity of how the bot can help them with their day to day tasks.

AI and the fight against the stress of Christmas
According to the findings, one in six Brits who celebrate Christmas (15%) intend to use AI to plan their itinerary for the big day this year.
A further one in six (15%) also plan to use the bot to help them improve their Christmas cracker banter in 2023, admitting they’ll be asking AI to help write their Christmas cracker jokes.
The study also revealed that almost one in six (14%) Christmas-loving Britons will be looking to AI for inspiration when constructing their heartfelt festive wishes and using AI to help write cards, emails, or Christmas greetings for loved ones.
Interestingly, earlier in the year, even Moonpig expressed their interest in using AI to create messages for its cards.
Comparatively, the tasks UK adults will be least likely to be turning to AI software to help with were found to be for cooking or planning recipes (10%), and planning the month itinerary in the lead up to Christmas (10%).

Meanwhile, just over a third (35%) of respondents want to use AI this Christmas due to their curiosity of how the bot can help them from day to day.
