We all know those days where your mood is just… not helpful. Feeling cranky, mad or sad often leads to overeating, or stress eating- especially for me. I tend to reach for the easiest, most sugar filled, or fa(s)t food I can get.
(like the cake in the picture- which I made myself by the way)
Today we will look a little at what foods you can eat/or drink, to improve your mood in a healthier way!
- Green tea:
Green tea has a calming effect on the brain and improves mental focus.
- Dark chocolate:
Dark chocolate can reduce the level of your stress hormones.
- Raw peppers:
Both red & green pepper, chili and bell peppers are high in vitamin C which reduces stress hormones
One of the first signs of your body being dehydrates is, that your mood and energy levels decreases, that’s why it’s important to keep hydrated at all times
- Sunflower seeds:
Sunflower seeds are rich in both vitamin E, selenium and magnesium, which all contribute to mood improvement
Oats increase the production of serotonin which is calming
These have a very high level of antioxidants and contains vitamin C which helps with repairing cells when we are stressed
Is told to boost and improve your concentration
Salmon has been told, to help decrease the feeling of anxiety
That is some of the great things to eat or drink when you are feeling down. I hope this was helpful to some of you!
I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time
