We all know a little dark chocolate can do wonders for our mood, but what other healthy snacks can give us a boost of happiness? Read on!
Avocado: Our favorite toast-topping contains serotonin, a happy neurotransmitter that boosts that feel-good feeling.
Berries: Berries contain anthocyanidins and anthocyanins, helpful little nutrients that prevent stress, anxiety, and depression.
Chickpeas: These yummy, protein-packed beans also include a healthy dose of vitamin B6, which helps the brain produce serotonin and norepinephrine. Say buh-bye to nervousness and irritability. Your coworkers will appreciate it!
Wine: We know you're not surprised. A glass of wine is a central nervous system depressant. WHAT? Depressant? Yes! If you're already jacked up on stress and anxiety, a little depressant might do wonders to help calm you down. The trick is not having too much wine, which can lead to late night sob sessions with a Tom Hanks movie. Moderation, people!
