    3. Enjoy some me time

    The need for 'me time' can often be overlooked - but spending time on ourselves can have an incredibly positive impact on our day-to-day life - whether it be just 10 minutes.

    4. Quit smoking/binge drinking

    Turning to alcohol or cigarettes may be an obvious choice - but in the long term, it'll only result in you feeling worse.

    5. Be positive

    Life isn't perfect - and that's just that.

    6. Keep your sugar levels steady

    Soybeans, dark chocolate, bananas and avocado are all good sources of magnesium, which helps with efficient energy production whilst also calming the nervous system on-the-go.

    7. Sleep

    Getting enough shut-eye is imperative to our health - it helps to restore the mind-body system and enough restful sleep can help strengthen our immune system.
