Many look for a way to be energized and happy all the time when it comes to their mood. Many turn to alcohol, some turn to hard stimulants like cigarette, hard drugs and so on to have a good mood and be energized to face their daily tasks. But one thing about most of the options people turn to is that they have side effects. All the stimulants stated above have their side severe side effects.
I came across some wonderful foods that can boost your mood and give you a good feeling . Here are some :
1) Chocolate : There’s some science behind the theory that chocolate makes us happy: eating dark chocolate (1.4 ounces of it, to be exact) every day for two weeks reduced stress hormones, including cortisol, in people who were highly stressed. A study done at the Nestlé Research Center in Switzerland recently found that to be true.
2) Tea : Tea contains theanine that revitalize the mind and body. When you are tired and exhausted, a cup of tea bag can buckle you up.
3. Fruits : Fruits such as water melon, orange refreshes the body with electrolytes to keep your body balanced. It also boosts your immune system with a lavish flow of vitamin C. Studies have shown that antioxidants in fruits are associated with lower risk of depression. Folate, a B vitamin found in some fruits and vegetables affects neurotransmitters that impact mood.
4. RAW HONEY : The sugar in honey has properties that give you an instant mood boost, reduce anxiety, and can even stop depression. It also has hormone-balancing properties that can stop depression in teenagers (or adults even). Raw honey reduces inflammation, and inflammation can actually cause depression in some cases as well. For an even more calming effect, add some raw honey to a soothing mug of tea and really let the relaxation sink in. You should consume about a tablespoon or so daily for the maximum benefits.
