Depression is much more prevalent than some people might think. While professional help is certainly important in many situations, diet can also be a factor in creating feelings of sluggishness and lack of interest.
What are some of the foods that can boost your mood? These suggestions come from Christine Bailey’ s new book The Brain Boost Diet.
- Processed foods and sugar are always the first thing to get rid of when you want to be more health conscious and adjust your mood. Get rid of white starch, fruit juices and sugars.
- Don’t shy away from fats found in oil. Essential omega-3 fats, for instance, that you’ll find in oily fish, walnuts, flaxseed and chia seeds can boost mood and help with depression.
- Green tea is an easy way to boost your mood. Green tea has L theanine in it which can help you to focus and lower your stress levels.
