Wakey-wakey Sleepy Head

The holidays are well and truly over. It’s only the 13th January and already I feel like I’ve been working full on for months. Early mornings, especially during these dark winter months, are challenging. Even my solar powered yellow flower refuses to smile at me in the morning so my husband bought me some pink flowers for a bit of post-festive cheer. Roll on spring sunshine!

I have been thinking hard on how to boost my energy levels. Coffee wakes me up after about the third cup but it isn’t the healthiest option (even if it is the rather dashing George Clooney machine). I’m not grumbling (much) because my productivity has been pleasing up until today when I simply had no energy to concentrate, even though I battled through for a couple of hours. If you are willing to share any tips on how to tackle lethargy, please do share.
Nevertheless, I have edited a good portion of my novel over the past three weeks and written two new short stories – one for a competition and one for a London literary magazine - so things are progressing in the right direction. I have also begun to organise a compilation of the best shorts I’ve written to date in order to create my first collection.
How do you boost your energy levels? What do you do to add a bit of sunshine into your day when it’s so glum outside of the window? How is your January going?
