Think Words Spin
Spin It, name it, Think Words Spin has 7 different game options to choose from. We like playing the game where you place 6 letter cards around the spinner and spin,  you then have to be the first player to name something beginning with the letter the spinner points to, in the category that matches the letter colour, its great fun and means you have to think fast, the person who names first then gets to keep the cards and the player who has the most at the end wins.

Surviving The Winter Months With Pharmaton Vitality Capsules

With the winter days fast approaching and the lack of sun, I'm certainly starting to feel tired and lack energy, but its great to know that Pharmaton Vitality Capsules contain vitamins and minerals to help enhance physical and mental performance to relieve the symptoms of fatigue and exhaustion.

Surviving The Winter Months:

  • Excercise - Try to do some gentle exercise even if its a brisk walk around the block.
  • Sleep - Try to get a good nights sleep to help you feel revived in the mornings.
  • Drink - Although its common we don't tend to want to drink as much water during winter months, but we still need our recommended daily intake to maintain a healthy level of hydration and break down toxins.
  • Herbel Supplements  - Get into the habit of taking a daily herbal supplement to naturally enhance your energy levels. Why not try Ginseng, an ancient Chinese remedy that has been used to improve thinking and concentration for centuries.

TRY Pharmaton Vitality Capsules: These capsules contain ginseng as well as the vitamins and minerals needed to relieve symptoms of tiredness, leaving you feeling mentally and physically alert during the dark winter months.  (£9.45, Boots).
