Personalised food delivery services are booming. When you have experts to help guide your choices, you can improve your nutrition and even reduce your blood sugar levels, giving you improved focus. Hannah Norris, Nutritionist for one such service (Fresh Fitness Foods) also recommends making simple changes to the proximity of food while you work; “Reduce unlimited snacks, put unhealthy snacks in cupboards… and put a fruit bowl near your desk”. With Fresh Fitness Foods, deliciously healthy deliveries can be made at a time that suits you best.

Working remotely can be a strange and sometimes lonely experience. A way to minimise some of the pressures is by having the right kit, making face-to-face communication as straightforward as possible. Logitech has just released its new StreamCam (£139/logitech.com), which features sharp and smooth 1080p/60 fps video – perfect for any video conference or streaming demo. Lightweight, simple to use and great for calls.

Red light therapy – part of the photobiomodulation movement, is gaining popularity for its healing properties. From bulbs and floor lamps to entire room set-ups, red light therapy has been shown to improve circadian rhythm, help wounds heal faster, improve joint movement, reduce wrinkles and even lessen the effects of chemotherapy. Install the right intensity for you and track the benefits over time.

Nootropics are natural supplements that improve cognitive function, and they’re gaining huge popularity. Men’s Health recently recognised Motion Nutrition’s ‘Power Up’ as their ‘best nootropic’ for its ability to aid with mental acuity and motivation. When you need to shut off, their ‘Unplug’ variety is focused towards helping you achieve a deeper sleep, which we could all do with!
