A few simple swaps in your day could help you on your journey to better health. Take a look below at some of the simple swaps you can try...

Try a non-alcoholic substitute

It can be a stressful time at the moment and turning towards alcohol to destress at the end of the day can be tempting. But drinking every day can take a toll on your physical and mental health.

From swapping to low-alcohol drinks to reducing the units you drink per week, One You have put together a guide to help. Take a look at their top tips on cutting down on alcohol here.

Did you know you can pick up non-alcoholic substitutes in your local Lincolnshire Co-op food store? We have a great range of low or non-alcoholic beers and wines available.

We also stock alcoholic free passion fruit martini and juniper and tonic from Love Local producer Belvoir Fruit Farms. Why not pick up a bottle on your next essential shop?

Swap technology for tranquillity

Taking up a new hobby is not only great for your body but also your mind too.

It's very easy to spend hours scrolling through your phone or watching TV for hours. But switching off from technology can be a great way to destress.

There's plenty of activities you can pick up from the comfort of your home.

One You have an app called Couch to 5K where you can join the virtual running community and take half an hour of your day to exercise and switch off.

If you're not into running, yoga is a great way to clear your mind at the end of the day. You can also do this from the comfort of your home. There's lots of free videos on YouTube which are great for beginners.

It doesn't have to be exercise either, putting your phone down and picking up a book is a great way to get lost in another world.
