Have you been feeling down in the dumps or little things bothering you when normally you wouldn’t think twice about them? Don’t worry it happens to everyone, however there is something you can do to help turn your mood around. There are natural mood boosters that can help improve your mood.
Cut artificial sweeteners. Evidence shows that aspartame is linked to mood disorders.
Cleanse. When our gut and liver are clogged from excess drinking, sugar, and an overall toxic load, our body struggles to make the feel-good hormones such as serotonin. Serotonin is actually made in the gut. So reduce your toxic load and give your body a break from the nasty chemicals with a seasonal cleanse.
Laugh more! Yes there is science behind this. Laughing is one of the easiest way to feel good.
Get your daily probiotic. This will ensure healthy gut flora.
Sleep 8 hours. Sleep = repair. When we feel rested, we’re happier people.
Play with a furry friend. Studies show when you play with a dog or puppy for 15 minutes the body naturally releases serotonin, prolactin, and oxytocin, and lowers the stress hormone cortisol.
It’s completely natural to be down in the dumps every once in a while, but with the help of these tips, it will help improve your mood. When we get overworked we tend to forget what makes us happy. If you enjoy running, painting, kayaking, going to the movies, bingo, or even line dancing, don’t forget to give yourself a much needed break – it will help improve your mood and your overall happiness.
