Winter wellbeing tips to boost your mood

Winter wellbeing tips to boost your mood

Maintain your get-up and glow with our natural mood-boosting tips for winter wellbeing.

 

Tips for a winter morning mood-boost

SET YOUR ALARM EARLY:

Rising early means that you’ll get the most amount of daylight into your day and this helps the body to synthesis the happiness hormone Serotonin. Use the early start to go for a winter wellness morning walk or jog. The quiet and still morning hours might just reward you with a mood-boosting sunrise or a wildlife sighting!

 

STRETCH:

Practising morning yoga is a great way to gently wake the body up during the winter! Sun Salutations are quick and easy for people of all ages and fitness levels to do before breakfast and energise the body for the day ahead.

You can practise yoga in a morning gym class or find an online tutorial and practise without leaving your home. Knowing that you have completed a workout before the day has begun gives a great feeling of satisfaction and means you have more time for relaxation in the evening.

If you have stiff joints in the morning or notice any niggles after your practice, work the Alexandra Kay Time to Ease Muscle Relax Body Oil into the skin to benefit from its blend of warming plant oils which have relaxing properties and help to release tension and inflammation from the body.

Time to ease

 

SIP:

Make your first drink of the day a zesty one to shake off feelings of sleepiness. Adding slices of organic lemon to your water wakes up your body without the need for diuretic caffeine and provides a natural boost to your winter wellbeing.

 

SET UP YOUR WORKSPACE:

A clear workspace that’s tailored to your needs will help to get your working day off to a good start. Whether you’re working from home or in the office, adding a few personalised touches to your workspace, such as a diffuser for essential oils, can make it a happy and productive place to be during the darker winter months.

Mood-boosting tips to stop the afternoon slump

PAUSE:

Bad starts happen to the best of us but they don’t have to define the rest of your day. Take a break and clear the mind by going for a walk in the fresh air or talk through your worries with a friend or colleague. Use this pause to draw a line under negativity and start the afternoon with an optimistic outlook. 

INSTANT MOOD BOOSTER

For an extra boost of winter wellbeing and positivity, dispense a few drops of our Time to Smile essential oil into your diffuser. A natural blend of happiness in a bottle, the Sweet Orange and Cedarwood scent evoke feelings of optimism.

REPLENISH: 

Food nourishes the body and the mind. Replenish your body with a healthy lunch full of Omegas and nutrients to help to starve of sluggish afternoon feelings. Organic chocolate is a delicious winter mid-afternoon treat and is also source of serotonin!

 

REWARD:

Reward your achievements, regardless of how big or small they might seem. Self-care needn’t be costly and a rewarding treat could be as simply as popping the kettle on for a cup of tea or treating yourself to a special self-care purchase from our organic wellbeing collection.

 

Winter wellbeing evening mood-boosters

It is especially important to lift your mood once the light starts to fade. Dark winter evenings can feel long but these winter wellbeing tips can help you to gain more control over your emotions.

HAVE A MINDFULNESS MOMENT:

Instead of running the day’s events over in your head, take a moment of mindfulness. There are lots of apps that can help you to achieve this but mindfulness can also be achieved by simply taking some time out to do something that makes you feel relaxed and takes your mind off negative feelings. This might be reading a book, watching your favourite tv show, running a warm bath or using our Alexandra Kay body oils for a winter wellness massage.

 

LOWER YOUR LIGHTS:

Daylight is great for boosting your mood but in the evening you can use light to help you to unwind and relax so that you can rest better and wake feeling energised and positive. Add a few drops of Time to Relax essential oil blend to a diffuser that has a warm, low-light glow and whisper noise setting.

GO TECH FREE:

If scrolling through social media images has a negative impact on your sense of wellbeing, it’s time to step away from the screen. Put your phone or tablet away in a drawer and make the hours before bed a tech-free zone.

 

REFLECT:

A good notebook can be a great tool for winter wellbeing. You can use it to diarise your emotions, to reflect on your achievements or use it to channel positive actions by planning goals and fun leisure activities.

 

REST:

Sleep is so important for wellbeing and a good night’s sleep will be reflected in your mood, skin and energy levels. When you’re ready for bed, dispense a drop of Time to Sleep onto your pillow and inhale the mind-calming scent whilst you rest. It delivers comforting notes of Ylang Ylang and Lavender which calms the senses and can help you to gently drift off to sleep.
