Keeping summer alive
Published 01/09/2015 | 02:30
The days are getting shorter, but it's no excuse to get sluggish. A few simple tricks can keep that summer zest alive.
Open your blinds or curtains as soon as you get up to let more sunlight into your home.
Get outdoors in natural daylight as much as possible, even a brief lunchtime walk can be beneficial.
Make your work and home environment as light and airy as possible.
The wane in sunshine over the winter months can mean you don't get enough vitamin D, and that can make you feel tired. Good food sources of vitamin D are oily fish, for example salmon, mackerel and sardines, eggs and meat. Vitamin D is also added to all margarine, and to some breakfast cereal and low-fat spreads.
