Happy New Year to all our readers and clients. We had a great time over the holidays and hope you all did too. Now we are in 2015, fresh start, new beginnings and if you are still keeping up with your resolutions well done! You’ve lasted longer than most.
Despite all the positivity and hope for the New Year it is entirely possible that you are feeling a little bit below par. January blues are common and although we still get our fair share of sunshine in Mallorca, now that 3 Kings has come to an end you can be feeling a little bit low. We found a great article on www.womanshealthmag.co.uk which gave some good tips that could help.
They suggest that it’s women who struggle most with these winter blues. That’s according to a survey of 2,000 people by Anglian Home Improvements, which found women were up to 50 per cent more likely than men to suffer with the reduced daylight. It’s especially the case when it comes to things like staying motivated and getting up in the morning.
So, if you’re in that headspace right now, start dealing with it with these tips from celebrity life coach Sloan Sheridan-Williams.
1/ STICK TO A ROUTINE
My clients often hear me say that constant progression is the key to a contented life, so a morning routine with a good breakfast and consistent waking time is one of the best ways to start the day – it gives you certainty and can be used to create a pattern of healthy behaviour.
2/ KEEP MOVING
Take time out every 30 minutes to walk, get fresh air or even just stand up and stretch at your desk. Exercise and being active is a great antidote to the winter blues as it increases endorphins, which lift your mood.
3/ SET A GOAL
Get motivated to change one important thing in your life. Take a piece of paper, write where you are on the left-hand side and where you want to be on the right. Then spend a few minutes brainstorming what you need to do to get there, before folding and putting it somewhere safe. This helps you organise your thoughts and triggers your subconscious into seeking out the opportunities you need to make the goal come true.
4/ EAT WELL
Swap processed ready meals for fresh fish and lean meats – these give you the best source of protein to keep your energy levels stable. The higher these are, the more you’ll accomplish and the more fulfilled you’ll feel. Try these foods to power through a busy work day.
5/ BE THANKFUL
When you wake up, focus on five things you’re grateful for or that make you smile. This’ll help you get a good perspective on your life and focus your subconscious towards the positive.
6/ WRITE A TO-DO LIST
Successful people know the importance of being organised. Using lists will give you a sense of achievement every time you complete a task and also stop you feeling overwhelmed. Plus, it can save you time for other more satisfying things like seeing friends and family.
