Here are some tips to help you reset your body and mind after a tiring weekend:

Take a cold shower:

Taking a cold shower can help to quickly improve your mood, while also boosting metabolism and immune function, at the same time as reducing inflammation, pain or soreness. When you’re in cold water, your brain is “too busy focusing on making the unpleasant sensation go away,” so unhappiness, anxiety or stress evaporates on the spot

Get your light fix:

Scientific research has found that viewing sunlight within 30 to 60 minutes of waking up is the most effective way to ensure you sleep well that evening. Spending between two and 10 minutes outdoors each morning can help our bodies to better understand when it’s time to relax and drift off later. In the winter, you can use a SAD lamp instead–it has the same effect

Eat a healthy breakfast:

Having a healthy, balanced breakfast can be an easy way too boost your mood. Steer away from carbohydrate-rich and sugary foods, such as cereals and toast, and instead embrace a protein-rich meal that won’t spike your blood sugar levels first thing. According to nutritionist, Rosemary Ferguson, that might be a vegetable omelette or kefir topped with nuts, seeds and berries: delicious and nutritious!

Try this afternoon tonic:

Rhian Stephenson, nutritionist and the founder of Artah, recommends swapping your second coffee for an afternoon tonic. “Mix 1.5 liters of water with the juice of one lemon and a pinch of cayenne pepper,” she says. “Cayenne is a circulatory stimulant, appetite suppressant, anti-inflammatory and digestive carminative, so it’s a great tool to help you stay energized, focused and clear-headed in the afternoon.”

Put your feet up the wall:

Lying on your back with your legs up the wall is excellent for lymphatic drainage. “Elevating your legs at the end of the day is one of the simplest and most effective ways to stimulate your lymphatic system,” says Stephenson
