Welcome. We hope you are keeping warm!

This month’s theme is Boosting our Energy and Productivity. Many people are finding their lives super busy at present. They’re struggling to maintain their energy. So in this week’s podcast, we share some simple tips to achieve more without draining your energy. After all, it makes sense to work smarter, not harder.

In this edition, we also review The Well Gardened Mind by Sue Stuart-Smith. If you love nature, including gardening, then this book is a great read. It includes interesting studies on how nature can help boost mental wellness and resilience. 

Here are two simple ideas we took from this book.

Firstly, with winter coming, it is easy to forget the importance of spending time outside every day. Being outside exposes us to light, which helps us produce Vitamin D, which has numerous health benefits.What fun outdoor activity can you plan this week to help boost your mood, energy and resilience? 

Secondly, did you know that flowers prime us to feel relaxed? Try bringing some flowers into your home. Notice how magical they make you feel.

Until the next time, stay warm.
