If you’ve braved the shops recently you’ve probably seen the obligatory fitness DVDs, diet recipe books and dubious ‘health’ supplements on offer. Here are a few, painless, ways to feel better after endless weeks of mince pies and brandy.

Yoga. I’ve had this book for years and find that a few simple stretches really does make me feel better. Gone have the youthful days of waking up at 6am to do an hour of yoga before university lectures (I must have been mad), now I find a quiet 15 minutes in the evening in my pyjamas is the right balance of manageable and beneficial.
Inspirational mantras. I’m not one of these people who will stand in front of the mirror chanting affirmations, but a few nice words around the house does tend to lift my spirits and provide decoration.
