How to have more energy in the winter

January 20, 2022

Winter is a time of year where we naturally have less energy because there is less sunlight.

You might know this. But do you act accordingly?

I had to remind myself this week, as I was working on the final edits of my upcoming book RADIANT: How to Have All the Energy You Need to Live a Live You Love

It’s my experience most people plan their day and week just as full in winter as they do in the summer.

Which doesn’t make sense—given the fact you literally have less energy!

So how do you remedy that? Start by listening to your body. Your body will tell you when you are doing too much.

These are some of the signs you can look out for:

Of course, any other signs of illness are a clear indication your body is working hard and you have to slow down.

Once you are clear you should probably be a little less ambitious about the amount of things you are trying to get done in one day—give yourself permission to relax and recharge more.

There will be so much less to fix when you pause before you push yourself too far.

It can be so tempting to keep going and push yourself. But I know I’m not doing my best work when I’m tired. (And neither are you.)

So instead of pushing through on the edits for my book, I slowed down. I prioritized what really needed doing, and went to bed early 🙂

I can’t wait for RADIANT to be released!

Click here to get the inside scoop! I’ll be sending ‘behind the scenes’ info and some sneak peeks of the book. And you have a chance to win 1 of 3 signed copies! 

Have a wonderfilled day full of energy!
