Have a chamomile tea – at night time to calm the senses and relax you naturally.

Try yoga/pilates – to stretch and relax your body.

Organise your time – effectively and reduce demands on yourself.

Eat more berries – these are full of antioidents that prevent your brain from ageing and are  great for energy without over stimulating energy drinks etc.

Meditate and practice deep breathing – in a calm quiet place to calm yourself/relieve stress.

Take a well earned break/time out to have some ‘me time’.

Take a ‘tech break’ – try not using your phone or any technical devices too much. Don’t keep your phone beside you during sleep as this can disrupt a peacful nights sleep.

Exfoliate and nourish the skin – autumn/winter is a difficult season for the skin. It is in the process of repairing from the sun and preparing for the winter. It is a must that you exfoliate once to twice a week to eliminate excess dead, dry and damaged skin cells. This will allow your new skin become stronger and more vibrant with life so it can cope with the winter months.
