1.📚Atomic Habits by James Clear here. When it comes to New Year resolutions in the words of Bridget Jones, “resolution number one: Obviously will lose twenty pounds”. As I discuss later in the article I don’t feel weight loss should be the goal, but rather the establishment of good and lasting habits, such as weight loss promoting behaviours. We all have a general idea of what is good for us and what is not, but still we make bad choices anyway. James Clear helps to break down and explain why this is as well as providing a workable framework as to how to establish good habits.
2. 💁♀️Vitamin D3 and K2, by Epigenar, purchase the one I’ve been using for years here (its best to use a vitamin D that is suspended in oil, as this is the most absorbable form and the K2 also helps to improve absorption. Place a few drops under the tongue each day). Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is a type of depression often seen during the winter months. It’s thought to be linked to reduced sunlight exposure, leading to increased melatonin, which makes you sleepy and decreased serotonin our happy hormone. A vitamin D deficiency may be linked to SAD so keep taking your daily supplement. Also if you like in certain parts of the world (which you can see here) you should be consistently taking a vitamin D supplement, the NHS also recommends taking a vitamin D supplement.
