It’s a new year. Why not take steps to make it your healthiest one ever?
Boost Your Mood Without Medications!
The following recommendations are helpful for recovering from mild anxiety and/or depression. Use these diet and lifestyle approaches to improve your mood naturally.
1. Eat a Healing Food diet
Ensure adequate intake of calories, protein, carbs, fat, vitamins, and minerals.
2. Avoid inflammatory and/or “junk” foods
Sugar, omega-6 fats, refined grains, chemicals, and preservatives are common in packaged and prepared foods.
3. Get enough sleep
Poor sleep is significantly associated with depression and anxiety. Make seven to nine hours of sleep nightly a top priority.
4. Exercise appropriately
Exercise is known to improve brain functioning and boost mood. Aim for 30 minutes of daily physical activity.
5. Assess your light exposure
Not enough natural light during the day and too much artificial light can have a major impact on your mood. Get outside as often as possible during daylight hours.
6. Support your gut
Consume probiotic-rich fermented foods like yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, kimchi, etc., for increased beneficial gut flora.
