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.

“Don’t Worry Be Happy” – 4 Ways to Help You Stay Happy This Winter

Winter tends to bring darkness, cold weather, and cause many people to become emotional wrecks. Some people suffer from frequent depression, others from seasonal depression, and everyone else just seems to get in a bad mood when there’s less light out. However, there are some things everyone can do to make them feel happier.

1. Listen to Some Music – Music has a very wide range of abilities, from getting us pumped up for the big game, or calming us down so we can relax after a hard day of work. When we listen to music, endorphins are released causing that sort of happy feeling we get from sex or food.


2. Laugh
– When you’re in a rather foul mood laughing can sometimes be hard. However, laughing is one of the best things to cheer you up. Try inviting a group of your friends over to watch a funny movie. The chances you’ll laugh increase significantly when you’re with others than when you’re alone. Laughing not only triggers endorphins, making you happier, but reduces specific stress hormones, and strengthens your immune system.

3. List the Things You’re Thankful For – It may seem kind of weird, but occasionally when you’re in a bad mood try writing down a few things you’re thankful for. This may help put things into perspective for you, and help you really see how lucky you are. However, don’t try this too often as it will lose its effectiveness over time. Additionally, it might not work for everyone, but it certainly couldn’t hurt to try.

4. Sex –Sex causes endorphins to be released that help reduce pain, but when there is no pain present, the endorphins can cause euphoria. A healthy sex life can significantly improve your overall mood, and actually provide many health benefits, such as a reducing your stress level.

5 ways to Prevent Seasonal Depression this Winter

Seasonal Affective disorder (SAD) is a condition that occurs in over 60% of Americans. It is commonly referred to as seasonal depression because it tends to occur during certain months of the year – most commonly during the winter hence the term “Winter Blues”. With seasonal depression you may experience some of the following symptoms:fatigue, weight fluctuations, irritability, conflicts with others, lack of motivation, cravings for carbohydrates, and difficulty concentrating.

If you are ready to say goodbye to your symptoms of SAD, try applying some of these tips to your daily lifestyle

1. Sun lamp

A lack of sunlight and brightness outside is the main cause of “gloominess” for many of those with SAD. Try buying a sun lamp in order to bring more light into your life and boost your mood. You may find yourself feeling more energetic!

2. Eat well

In order to improve your energy levels, try to cut back on caffeine and white flour. You will find that you enjoy a more natural energy boost from a better diet when you quit your coffee drinking and snacking habits. In addition, eating healthy means that your body is getting all of the essential vitamins and minerals it requires. Pick up some vitamin supplements if your eating habits aren’t great – Vitamin B6 and B12 are natural antidepressants.

3. Take a breather

Clear fresh oxygen is crucial for stabilizing mood. Try taking a quick 15 minute daily walk in order to boost your mood – bundle up so you don’t freeze in the cold weather!

4. Stress Management

Learn to control your stress levels in a meditative and relaxing way. Wind down at the end of a long day doing something you enjoy such as reading, exercising, watching TV or taking a bath

5. Exercise

Exercise is important for physical health – but it is just as important for mental health. When we exercise our bodies release endorphins which are hormones that affect our mood in a positive way. The more you exercise, the happier you will feel!
