BEATING THE JANUARY BLUES

After the excesses of Christmas and New Year, January seems like a let-down. Every year we say to ourselves that we will not let ourselves go in January but the mirror tells no lies. Whether it is a new pot belly, relapse to bad habits or sadness from seeing the Christmas tree being taken down, there is no escaping the fact that January can be an anticlimactic month.

January blues is perfectly normal and there is no need to beat ourselves about it. Even the most successful people suffer from January blues. This is not the time to compare ourselves to others or restrict the tasty foods because the cold winter is bad enough as it is. In today's blog we have put together some of our favourite tips in combating the post-holiday slump. Remember that persistently feeling blue requires professional help so get in touch with someone qualified now.

1. Take your multivitamins

The older generation were not wrong when they insisted on the flaxseed and cod liver oil. Boosting your body's defences with multivitamins and natural supplements are just what you need after a month of excess and hard partying. There are many high quality supplements available online and in stores so stock up on goodies for your body. In winter, Vitamin C, Echinacea, St John's Wort, Vitamin D and Vitamin B supplements are particularly helpful.

2. Drink water

Keeping your body hydrated is vital to good health and will give you more energy in the winter months. Some prefer a wedge of lime or lemon and even a sprinkle of cayenne pepper to boost the metabolism. Water cleanses can help the immune system and you'll have good skin too.

3. Go out for fresh air

Assuming that you cannot commit yourself to an exercise regime at the moment, getting out for fresh air will get your blood pumping and heart beating faster. The health benefits of brisk walking are well known and it will help to release some feel good endorphins.

4. Eat yourself happy

Nutrient rich, fresh foods are the best foods this winter. Happy foods include zinc rich eggs, rye, oats and lamb, and good fats in salmon, nuts and mackerel does wonders for your mood. Tryptophan rich foods such as seaweed, eggs, spinach, halibut and turkey meat is converted by the body into serotonin which works with noradrenalin and dopamine to help you relax and overcome stress.

5. Use a sun lamp

The deprivation of light in the winter months contributes to SAD (seasonal affective disorder) and it can be overcome by more exposure to full spectrum fluorescent light. In 2015, people are more aware about SAD and SAD sun lamps can be found everywhere; the best ones have an intensity of 10,000 lux. Just one hour a day under the sun lamp can help to regulate the circadian rhythm that gets upset by winter.
