Foods That Will Make You Happy


For some of us Depression is a very serious issue that continually arises. However, for most of us we occasionally just feel sad or angry, or don’t really feel anything. Yet, there are some ways to increase our general happiness. The key to this isn’t medication, and it doesn’t require you to do yoga for 5 hours every day. In fact, it is a rather simple method of obtaining happiness or at least boosting that mood for awhile, watch what you eat.

No, I don’t mean you necessarily have to eat healthy, although I’m sure that would also make you a happier person anyway. Watch what you’re putting into your body because there are some foods that can actually increase you levels of happiness. So if you’re feeling a little down try some of these for a boost.

Sunflower Seeds – The folate and magnesium found in sunflower seeds play an enormous role in regulating your mood. In fact, magnesium deficiency often results in fatigue, nervousness, and anxiety and has often been linked to mood disorders. Magnesium has also been proven to help in the treatment of depression, suicidal tendencies, anxiety, irritability, and insomnia.

Bananas – A banana will provide you with an energy boost due to the fructose. The fiber will help keep your energy balanced. Bananas will also provide you with carbohydrates, and vitamin B6, which both help in making serotonin.

Dark Chocolate – Chocolate can play a huge factor on mood control. There are many different substances found in chocolate that are known to boost one’s mood. For example, fat, sugar, caffeine, phenylethylamine, flavonols, theobromine, and tryptophan, are all found in chocolate. Not to mention just the taste and texture of chocolate can make a person very happy.

Eggs – Eggs help balance your emotions and help boost energy levels. Additionally, eggs can help symptoms of depression and even lessen memory problems.

5 Ways to Reduce Stress


Try Writing – Write about everything you think is causing you stress. Write about all those little things that annoy you, agitate you. Write about something that happened that made you angry, or sad. Write about something that you find pleasure in, maybe a short story with a cliché happy ending. Just write for the sake of writing, it might take your mind off the thing(s) that make you stressed out.

Talk It Out – Find someone you know you can trust and who is a good listener who won’t judge you. Then let it all out. Talk about that thing at work that you find frustrating, like that paper that your boss just won’t accept. Talk about something that made you sad, cry if you have to. Get angry if you must, just don’t keep all the emotion bottled inside you, it has a way of just erupting at the most inopportune moments.

Exercise – Getting regular exercise is one of, if not the best way to relieve stress. It allows you to have a physical outlet for all that stress that’s been bringing you down. Stretching will help with muscle tension and many people find stretching relaxing. Why not work on some deep breathing at the same time to help you relax.

Eat Some Chocolate – Chocolate makes you happy and when you are stressed out being happy is the one thing in the world you need. Not only will chocolate lighten your mood, it tastes really good too.

Listen To Music – Music is such a powerful tool. There is a lot of music that will help you calm down and relax. Even though it might not be your preferred type of music try listening to something slower or more mellow. Although it is a little bit weird it does work. I personally am a rock and metal music fan. However, sometimes it’s good to listen to something a bit slower. Even if you’re not into going to something like the sound of ocean waves you can still go more for a soft rock song. Maybe one of the slower songs from the groups “Muse,” or “Red Hot Chili Peppers.”
