Welcome to the November Lifebox!
While in general I enjoy these colder days spent enjoying the cosy comforts of home, I don’t know about you, but I often find myself exhausted around this time of the year.
It feels eternally dark outside and even going for a quick walk just doesn’t sound that appealing.
It’s actually very common to struggle with sleep & experience a lower mood during the Winter months. Why? We actually need daylight (& sunlight) to help regulate our Circadian Rhythm. Sunlight also triggers the release of Serotonin – our happy neurotransmitter, and of course Vitamin D.
So, what’s the solution? When you wake up, try to open all your curtains and get as much light into your eyes as possible straight away. If you can go for a pre-work or lunchtime walk outside to do some gentle stretches, this will definitely help!
I know that the weather sometimes won’t allow for this, so we’ve included some helpful goodies in this month’s box to support our bodies & mind during Winter. Including the fabulous Linwoods Flax with Vitamin D & Probiotics and Jetfuel Rest Sachets which value at £20.
You’ll also find Westlab Muscle Spray to help revive tired muscles and aid relaxation, Virtue Drinks for some natural energy if you’re feeling groggy and Chescots Porridge Pots & the Coconut Collab to get your day off to a flying start.
Of course, the box is also packed with handy on the go snacks including POP Peanut Bar, The Protein Ball Co, Shore Seaweed Crisps, Nucao, Miso Tasty, Mister Freed and Teapigs. We hope you love your box!
Lots of love, Alicia xx
