We all have those days when things just don’t go our way. Rather than dwell on the day’s shortcomings, follow this advice and pick yourself up out of the trenches!
1. Go grab some sushi! Omega-3 fatty acids that are abundant in seafood are linked to raised levels of dopamine and seratonin, the same brain chemicals boosted by antidepressants.
2. Lift your spirits with scent. Studies have shown that people who sniffed lavender or orange were likely to be less stressed. Spritz on a scent with these notes and you will soon find your mood on the rise.
3. Go get some sun! Too little sunshine can lead to Vitamin D deficiencies. A recent study found that Vitamin D levels were 14% lower in depressed people.
