Now the clocks have gone back, it's hard to deny that winter is on its way. I find this week particularly hard, with the nights drawing in and the feeling that it will be months before we get light evenings again. It's also the time of year when coughs, colds and other lurgies are lurking, and it's easy to worry about falling prey to the latest bug doing the rounds.
However, over the years I have learnt that if I wallow in that feeling, it just perpetuates itself and makes me feel worse, so I know I have to build in strategies to change my emotional attitude (mindset) and also support my physical strength to not just make it through winter, but also enjoy it.
Before I share some of my top tips, have a think about how you feel, and whether you have strategies in place for making the most of the next few months. What are you thinking? What are you doing? If you'd like some inspiration - read on!
These are my top 5 tips.
I hope these tips prove to be of use to you. Do remember that when you make lifestyle changes, that you can't do them all at once. Choose one things that most appeals to you and is realistic to fit in to your life at the moment. Try it for a few days, a week maybe, then if it's working, you can add in something else.
I'd love to know your top tips for surviving winter. Please do share yours.
