Track your fitness


Monitor your daily activities using a new fitness wearable tracker. The Fitbit Charge 3 is the newest fitness tracker by Fitbit. It’s waterproof, which means it’s perfect for swimming, and it’ll track your heart rate and sleep quality. Get the Fitbit, White 'Charge 3', £150, from Debenhams.

Invest in new gym kit


If you look good in your exercise gear, you’ll be more motivated to exercise. Come in store to see the new M&S sportswear range. The M&S Collection for women spans quick dry tops and leggings, high impact sports bras in flattering colours and styles and casual yoga wear. The men’s range comprises Active hoodies and T-shirts as well as slim-fit joggers.

Indulge in beauty treatments


Spoil yourself this winter by coming to Superdrug’s beauty studio. We’ve got a brow and lash bar and a nail bar, so why not get eyelash extensions or a manicure to make you feel like a million dollars? No appointment necessary, just pop in.

Snuggle up with a good read


Beat the January gloom by curling up with a stack of new books from Waterstones. Browse recent publications in the book shop such as wilderness reads that’ll open a door in your mind onto the countryside and nature. Waterstones has a selection of books that’ll soothe your soul; read on.
