Learning a new skill can give you a sense of achievement and confidence. It could be as simple as watching a YouTube video to learn how to fix a puncture or committing to a new course or hobby. Inspired by the Great British Bake off? Then why not buy Mary Berry's Complete Cookbook and learn how to avoid ever having a soggy bottom again.

You don't have to go to the gym to get fit, walking has health benefits for mind, body and heart. Commit to a brisk 15-minute walk outside once a day and you’ll see an instant impact on your wellbeing. Exercise stimulates endorphins which trigger positive feelings in the body.  Use a pedometer to help you track your activity each day.

Tea and coffee provide an instant pick me up, but too much caffeine can also send your adrenal glands into overdrive, which adds to the feeling of stress. Try replacing caffeinated drinks with herbal teas or swap your cafetiere for a blender and get into the new craze for juicing. This cool jug blender from Bodum has a five speed setting, perfect for soups and delicious smoothies.

Give Something Back

Create connections with people around you and harness the feelgood feeling by giving something back. Take time today to pay a compliment, smile at supermarket staff or help someone onto a bus. Small deeds of kindness will give you a positive glow. Take it one step further by volunteering in your community or donating to a charity.

When we feel stressed, overworked or rundown we often give up activities that improve our wellbeing. It could be a yoga class you feel too tired for, a favourite meal you’re too exhausted to cook or a night out that you miss. Write a list of pick-me-up treats to use when you’re feeling rundown. It could be a drink, a great album or an indulgent foot spa.
