As the clocks go back this weekend, it signals the start of the winter months and for many, it can see motivation and productivity levels dip as our mornings and evenings begin to get increasingly darker.

Take a look at our top three suggestions for keeping on top of those winter blues.

Focus on your to-do list

Many people get a real sense of satisfaction as they tick off items on their to-do list. Putting in place realistic targets for each day and week will help you stay on track and feel motivated when you feel your energy levels starting to take a plunge. By making sure what you set out to do is achievable and manageable you will set your self up in the right way for the day ahead.

Get some fresh air

Heading out for a brisk walk can be much less appealing when the weather starts to turn colder but getting fresh air and taking a break is even more important during the winter months as our energy levels dip when we spend less time outside. Wrap up warm and blow away the cobwebs and you’ll feel ready for the rest of the day.

Take a look at your work life balance

Dealing with stressful periods at work can be all the more difficult during the winter months, without the promise of weekends in the sun or a summer holiday to look forward to. Make sure you take some time out for yourself and look for ways that you can relax that brings benefits to your physical and mental well-being.
