1 Keep mov­ing

‘In win­ter, it can be dif­fi­cult to pull your­self out of your slum­ber, es­pe­cially with such dark morn­ings. Gen­tle ex­er­cises such as walk­ing and stretch­ing can be in­vig­o­rat­ing.’

2 Eat healthily

‘When it’s cold, we eat for com­fort rather than health. Eat­ing lit­tle and of­ten, plus avoid­ing starchy foods (such

as bread, po­ta­toes and pasta), can help stop a slump.’

3 Get your nu­tri­ents

‘Sup­ple­ments con­tain­ing vi­ta­min B and gin­seng can be good en­ergy boost­ers and help keep you men­tally alert.’ Try Phar­ma­ton Vi­tal­ity Cap­sules (£24.99 for 100, Boots) to help re­lieve fa­tigue and re­store vi­tal­ity nat­u­rally. Your phar­ma­cist can ad­vise you ac­cord­ingly.
