It’s that time of the year again, where many of us feel that our batteries are running low. Our energy is often poorer and just getting out of bed in the morning to start our day can feel like a challenge. The likelihood is that it’s dark in the morning when you leave your home and dark again on your return from work. So how does this make you feel? Does it have an impact on your energy, mood and general feeling of health and wellbeing?
