Whether you’re a new Mum; running around after active toddlers; or in the midst of multi-tasking, ferrying your brood between rugby practise, dance class, and after school activities... one thing’s for sure - you're going to exhausted! Here are a few tips to help you keep revitalised and refreshed for the start of a new year. 1) Eat, drink and vitamin up! During the winter months especially, it's essential to take on board plenty of foods rich in vitamins, essentials oils and minerals rather than ‘fixing’ on sugar. An intake of sugar will certainly give you a quick ‘pick me up’ but very quickly you’ll be feeling lethargic as your blood sugar levels drop and you’ll soon be in need of another ‘fix’. If you really need sugar try some local honey on toast or swirled into yoghurt and gradually wean yourself onto natural sugars as a start point. Honey is a wonder ingredient that is good for your general wellbeing by helping to keep germs at bay, and is a natural miracle worker for your skin. Ensure you have a good breakfast (don’t skip it – take a piece of fruit and a few nuts at least) to set you up for the day. For lunch top up on mineral rich green vegetables, fish and other protein rich foods, followed by plenty of water. Dehydration can often lead to headaches so make sure that you’re balancing your caffeine intake with plenty of water. It might also be a good idea to top up on vitamins going into this super busy period. Keep an eye on your iron and magnesium intake and top it up with supplements for extra energy as without enough of these tiredness can easily creep in. 2) A little bit of space and time Even if you’re up to the wire it’s essential that you find a few minutes each day for ‘me time’. Take yourself to another room or step outside for a change of temperature to stimulate your senses; take deep breaths and a moment to relax in your surroundings. Five minutes of calm can work wonders in releasing tension. 3) Give your face and body a well deserved ‘hug’ Skin is often one of the first areas to reflect our tiredness. Whether it’s an increase in breakouts, dark circles under the eyes or dry, parched patches. A few minutes refreshing and brightening your skin in the morning and calming and pampering it in the evening can work wonders. Try these top tips. REFRESH & BRIGHTEN TIRED SKIN

Take a minute: Whatever you’re up to, remember to spend just one minute before you go to bed to recognise what a brilliant job you have done today! Pop a spoon of honey into hot water... sip...and sleep soundly....
