Yoga is very calming and centering.
Immerse yourself in any creative projects that take you out of yourself ... where you lose all sense of time passing.
Give less time to neg-heads who enjoy putting you down and those who take far more emotionally than they give. Remember - they need you far more than you need them, and you're not a charity.
Commune with nature more.
Try to develop a better awareness of any leisure activities and interests that you find fulfilling and make time to do more of them, e.g. spending more time with a friend or pet, watching films, reading, gardening, visiting museums and art galleries. Whatever lifts your mood and spirit. Try to recognise what you are doing through habit/having become stuck in a rut, and cut down or cut out completely those activities, as appropriate. One can feel especially positive about achieving that.
Use mostly candlelight after dark. Go with the seasons rather than attempting to fight them. But make extra effort to get out into the sunshine when you can, especially during the morning.
Learn to recognise when you're being hard on yourself - and stop doing that! Sometimes being selfish is necessary and will enable you to do more for others in the long run. Focus your time and effort only on those who are truly in need of it.
Foodwise, oily fish, vitamin D, green tea and a wide variety of fresh vegetables.
