Don't let winter tiredness winAre you full of energy in warmer weather? If you’re based in the UK, or anywhere with defined seasons, it can feel like you only get to enjoy summertime for a few days – and then winter can seem to last forever. As we head into the colder months, many of us can feel our energy draining away. With overcast skies and shorter daylight hours, do you want to boost your energy levels? Here are our top tips to avoid a weary winter!
Chase the sun
One of the main drains on our energy in the darker months is simply the lack of sunlight! So when the sun shines, even if it’s cold outside, make sure you open your curtains and let it in. All the better if you can go for a walk on brighter days. Darkness can cause an increase in your body’s melatonin, which makes you sleepier – get out and embrace the day!
If you’re feeling sluggish and there’s a winter storm roaring, the last thing you want to do is work out. We hear you. But exercise releases endorphins and will make you feel far more awake, aware, and happier. Even if you’re just enjoying a brisk walk or a dance around your kitchen – incorporate movement into your day. Your body will thank you for it.
Sweet treats and comfort foods, while tempting, can weigh you down, while fruits and veggies make you feel bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. Try to ease off heavy carbs such as bread and pasta, and pack your meals with winter veg and pulses. Just as comforting, but you won’t feel sleepy afterwards.
Wake up With Kollo
One of the best ways to improve your energy levels is to add Kollo premium liquid collagen to your daily routine. One of the leading health benefits of marine collagen is that it eases fatigue and helps you to feel bouncy and ready for anything! Providing additional vitamins such as vitamin C and B12, it’s the boost you need.
Be your own sunshine this winter and you’ll feel lighter and brighter in no time.
