Hey there my Flawsome friend,
For those of you who celebrate, hope you had a great day celebrating yesterday and more than likely today as well, those of you in the UK.
What did you do for Christmas day?
How do you like to spend your time?
I spent the day with my family, eating delicious food with great company.
I announced the winner of my Flawsome Wellness Bundle from Flawsome Jem and Good Hemp via Instagram and Facebook on Monday, to find out who won, check out Facebook and Instagram. Giveaway closed-just showing prize again!
The weather has been a bit miserable recently here in the UK and I’ve spoken to a lot of people who are really struggling at the moment.
- Are you feeling SAD?
- Do you lack energy or find it hard to control your appetite?
It could be due to SAD!
When winter sets in, I know I have to take extra care of myself and be religious about my routines-healthy habits are crucial when the temperature starts dropping.
Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) has similar symptoms to depression and we can all suffer from it in varying degrees.
If you do find yourself feeling this way, it’s important to take action now-it is much harder to find the motivation when you’re in the middle of winter.
While the following tips are not cure’ s for SAD, I find they work for me and my clients. Some sound obvious, but they really will affect how you feel over the next few months.
1. Prioritise your workouts-even if they are in the comfort of your home. You’re be preparing a strong body for summer, while keeping up those endorphins.
5. Pay particular attention to eating well-include protein, good fats, some complex carbs and of course loads of greens at every meal. Balancing your blood sugar levels helps your mood and keeps your weight stable.
I find keeping track via a planner or journal is a great way to track your positive changes. Need a journal to help you?
I’ll leave it there for today.
Happy New Year to you and Best Wishes for 2019! Thank you for all the support this year, it means the world to me, love each and every one of you, thank you.
I look forward to getting to know you better and sharing your healthy journey with you this coming year.
Lots of love,
