By practising simple resolutions that are easy to keep, you can give your year a fresh new beginning. Even the smallest changes can boost your wellbeing every day, as Eva demonstrated so well when we visited her home.

Wake up to positivity

Following your body’s natural clock is important. Eva does this by turning off the lights 30 minutes before bedtime -  it gets your body and mind ready for sleep. Mornings are all about yoga and fresher bathroom routines. The exercise does wonders for her mood and circulation while the herbal scents in the bathroom reawakens her senses and keeps her mood energised. Try following Eva’s example and set the tone of the day before leaving home. Even if it’s a simple ‘win’, like making the bed.

My bedroom is my sanctuary. At night, it’s where I shut the door on the rest of the world. But in the morning, it helps to let the new day in as soon as I wake up


I use the bathroom as a place for relaxing, not rushing. We bottle up homemade bath soaks infused with herbs to fill the room with a fresh, invigorating fragrance


I like to do yoga outdoors, the cold air helps clear my mind. To find your inner calm, sit with your legs crossed, hands on knees, with your head and spine aligned, and hold for one minute


I start the day with a cup of herbal tea to give my metabolism a boost. Peppermint is known for its digestive properties, and chamomile tea is full of antioxidants
