To help you shake off the summer holidays our nutritionist Jess is here with some failsafe ways to rev your system. Here’s some tips to help you reboot your mental space ready to get back to work!
Even though holidays are supposed to refresh and rejuvenate you, it can often be difficult to shake off the holiday mind set and get back to your normal routine. Try these simple hacks to clear your head and you’ll be ready to take on anything!
To enjoy relief, clarity and energy you need to create some mental whitespace and one superb exercise to help you to do this is to write down ALL your projects, tasks and small to do’s on a piece of paper and get them out of your head.
All those tasks can now be prioritised into your schedule over the upcoming weeks so there’s no fear of anything getting forgotten.
Your brain is made up of 80% water - dehydration can slow down brain power and concentration. Sip on water throughout the day to keep focused. Ideally, you should be aiming for 8 glasses or 2 litres a day.
Fill your mind with positive thoughts by starting a gratitude journal when you wake up and go to bed.
Over time, focusing on the positives in your days will leave no room in your head for the negatives.
