Dr Nerina, our sleep expert, is a big advocate of spending time outdoors. ‘Make the most of the winter sun and increase your Vitamin D levels by getting out for a walk or a run. Fresh air is a quick energiser, so even something as simple as getting outside and breathing deeply for a few minutes will make a difference to your day.’
Do something different
If your daily routine is causing fatigue or getting you down, change it up. Why not start a new project? January is the perfect time to make some home improvements for the year ahead. Turn your bedroom into the ultimate sleep sanctuary with a lick of paint or some new accessories. We’ve rounded up this year’s biggest bedroom trends here. Get inspired, create your own vision and keep yourself busy this January!
