Winter is upon us once again. Some would say that it’s a peaceful time of year, full of hot drinks and cosy blanket evenings. But the darker, shorter days can really begin to take its toll so we’ve put together a little list to help you beat the winter blues.

1. Keep active
With dark mornings and evenings, it can be hard to motivate yourself to keep active and healthy. But a quick trip to the gym or even a brisk walk can really improve your spirit and boost your mood. Try and buddy up with someone to keep yourself accountable, whether it’s a family member or friend.

2. Get outside
Spend time outdoors and try to soak up a lot of natural daylight as much as possible, especially at midday and on brighter days. If this isn’t possible, try ensuring you’re sat beside a window to allow natural light in. If you’re not getting enough sun, Trace Minerals Liquid Vitamin D3 can give you the vitamin boost you need.

3. Eat healthy
A healthy diet can boost your mood tenfold. It’ll give you more energy and will help you manage your weight over the winter period. It can be difficult with all the temptation of comforting winter meals but try balancing your diet with lots of fresh fruit and vegetables

4. Take up a new hobby
Keep your mind busy and give yourself something to focus on over the coming months. It could be absolutely anything from knitting, to joining the gym, or even scrapbooking. Really get stuck into a task and let the time fly by.

5. Be social
Make an effort to keep in touch with friends and family. Make plans to give yourself something to look forward to and spend time socialising to really help boost your mood.
