FIND YOUR RAINBOW

If you eat a 'rainbow' of different wholefoods then you will be getting a wonderful, wide range of nutrients to keep your body in tip top condition. Fruits and vegetables are your super foods and you should aim to fill a third to half of your plate with them.

FUEL YOUR BODY

Regular meals are essential to keeping your energy at an optimum level. Plan them in advance, with snacks built in if you feel that you need them. Hunger levels can vary on a daily basis depending on how active you are, how much sleep you've had and how hydrated you are. Listen to your body so that you're not under or over eating on a regular basis.

LAUGH FOR YOUR HEALTH

Stress can often lead to emotional eating and chronic stress levels may also impact on your immune system and the ability to fight infection. Make sure to schedule 'me time' and activities that you truly enjoy into your day; a little bit of laughter will not only help to boost your mood but your wellbeing and health too.

STAY TOPPED UP

We know how hard it is to always stay on top of your nutrient intake. In the winter month's Alive! Immune Support Soft Jell Multi-Vitamins from Nature's Way are the perfect way to top up your daily diet, with a delicious berry natural fruit flavour these soft Jells will ensure your body gets what it needs every day. (RRP of £14.99 for 60 x Soft Jells)

GET SHUT EYE

Aim for at least 7 hours of sleep a night. Sleep is the time when our body recovers and repairs and it's essential to get enough zzzz's in order for our body to function at its best.
