Nourishing Your Mind, Body & Soul This Winter

Nourishing Your Mind, Body & Soul This Winter

With the festive season well and truly over, another few months of winter in sight, and a long stretch between paydays, you’re not alone if you find yourself feeling down. January brings us Blue Monday, which is considered the most depressing day of the year. Whether you're juggling home-schooling, furlough, loss of a loved one or the virus itself, you're not alone. With counselling services stretched and antidepressant use soaring between July and September revealing the highest figure on record within the UK, the psychological pandemic ahead may stretch out longer than the physical. 

Whether you believe in Blue Monday or not there's no denying this year is a little harder than normal. It is, therefore, all-important that you take charge of your mental health and look out for yourself. Just as flight attendants instruct us to "put your oxygen masks on first before helping others" its so important to take care of yourself first and this is also the greatest gift you can give your loved ones, a calm and balanced you. 

Allocate time in your day to improve your mindset with these easy tips: 

Nourish your body

  • Drink lots of water 

  • Try a new smoothie or salad recipe 

  • Replace chips or chocolate snacks with fruit and veggies

  • Take your time when eating, don't rush and savour each bite
