Are you feeling stressed, flat, or tired as soon as you wake up?
Are you looking for some help to make your mood better?
Worry not, we’ve got you covered…
In this post, we will share tips and tricks on how to boost your mood naturally – so can feel better and enjoy your time all day long.
Let’s get started..
We get angry for nothing, after the children, the queues, the metro that does not arrive.
Everything takes on exaggerated proportions.
In fact, we feel stressed and hyper-nervous.
Some people are susceptible to the transition from one season to another. And their nervous system takes a hit.
The lack of magnesium is also common, causing fatigue, nervousness, even tingling, and muscle cramps.
The need for magnesium is further increased by stress; a natural vicious circle can set in!
Eat a handful of almonds, walnuts, or hazelnuts for breakfast or as a snack.
They provide about 15% of the 360 mg of recommended daily intake of magnesium.
We recommend using delicate and rebalancing plants for three weeks. But the improvement is noticeable after a few days!
When you start feeling stressed or nervous, add a few drops of lemon balm water to a cup with some sugar.
It works like magic!
De-stress through physical exercise!
It is the best thing to do when you are not feeling well. It decreases the production of adrenaline and provides healthy fatigue.
Suggestions: swimming, gym, team sport, or just walking outside
You always feel tired ….whether after work, cooking, or going out.
Everything weighs you down. And you have to force yourself to do things.
In some people, the dark winter days are enough to lower the level of serotonin in the brain.
However, this neurotransmitter is essential, among other things, to feel happy and full of appetite for life.
Be careful; weariness and demotivation can also reflect the onset of depression.
We recommend you focus on foods containing tryptophan, a precursor of serotonin, such as brown rice, dairy products, fish, legumes, almonds, chocolate, and bananas.
There are a lot of options available to help you deal with these negative emotions.
However, even if it is over-the-counter (capsules or tablets in pharmacies, treatment of at least one month), we highly recommend you talk with your doctor or pharmacist.
Sometimes, it may not mix well with other drugs, which increases or decreases the effectiveness of the treatment (pill, medicines against migraine, asthma, cholesterol, epilepsy…)
When we are not in good shape, we tend to withdraw into ourselves. At the same time, we should hang out with people who cheer us up or exercise outdoors.
Not only does the sight of the first flowers help to regain courage, but physical activity is a remedy in its own right.
These activities increase the level of serotonin in the brain.
They also secrete endorphins, these natural anti-fatigue hormones that improve mood.
A little extra tip: wear energizing colors (yellow, red, orange…) and put them, somehow, in the house flower. Like flowers in a vase!
You feel totally flat.
You get up already tired, even if you have slept 10 hours.
Between work, children, home, and social life, it isn’t easy to deal with everything.
Undoubtedly the most apparent cause is… overworking!
Wanting to play Wonder Woman too much to be perfect in everything, you end up living beyond your means.
Result: you feel permanently exhausted.
Forcing on vitamins B6 and B12 is a recommended thing to do in such a situation.
Rabbit and lentils contain reasonable amounts of it, and iron for the first, magnesium for the second, excellent against fatigue..
Add some seafood, avocados, and bananas. Sprinkle the salads with some brewer’s yeast or sunflower seeds.
We draw on the strength of hundred-year-old trees, a bit like those naturists who cling to their trunk and surround it with their arms.
In practice, birch sap is used, which detoxifies and strongly mineralizes at the rate of one glass in the morning on an empty stomach for three weeks.
Or pycnogenol (in pharmacies). It is a powerful antioxidant that regenerates the body.
A break from everyday life. You can do this by going on a short trip, offering yourself a thalassotherapy treatment, or an anti-stress spa treatment.
You learn some techniques to use on your return: sophrology, cardiac coherence, yoga, or other ways of meditation…
To neutralize the harmful effects of stress, you have to prioritize your priorities and take daily breaks.
Thirty minutes of reading or jogging, rather than ironing!
Nothing recharges the batteries and brings you back to normal better than pleasure! So yet another way to boost your mood naturally is to schedule a movie session with your partner or an evening out with your friends – twice a week at least.
