It’s beginning to feel a lot like winter

Today is the day meteorologists call the first day of winter, albeit a mild one so far. With shorter daylight hours, stressfully busy and long working hours, not forgetting it’s the party season, our bodies are under stresses that we often don’t have at other times of the year.

Something about the build up to Christmas makes us all want to be the life and soul of every party and that each one should be ‘perfect’ It’s impossible, but every year we try. If you haven’t already started, look into taking Vitamin D – it’s not right for everyone, but in the UK, we are generally deficient in this vitamin because we don’t get enough daylight (who has time to leave their desk to go outside when you have a deadline?). Also worth looking at multi vitamins.

Ideally we would get everything we need from our diet – but sometimes we need a helping hand.
