Are you feeling sad, upset or frustrated for no reason? I feel it is becoming more and more common. I experienced that so many times and therefore I started looking for a homemade remedies.
Current situation does not make the situation easier. I feel thirsty for travelling and eager to socialize more than before. It is a human nature and we all appreciate the value of “enjoying every day”.
I believe it all starts from us, we need to take care of ourselves more than every before, follow healthy diet, exercise and do what makes us happy. Healthy diet gives us energy we need for every day. Exercise reduces our stress hormones, such as adrenaline and cortisol. What is more, exercise stimulates the production of endorphins – chemicals known for our mood elevation, they are natural painkillers as well.
Do you have enough vitamin D? Low levels of vitamin D may contribute to bad mood. It is actually proved that low vitamin D levels are correlated with major depression and premenstrual mood symptoms in women. Sunlight exposure is the primary source of vitamin D, let’s spoil ourselves with a little bit of sun every day, even if it means to step out from our office for a quick break. Did you know that low level of vitamin D is linked to obesity? Low level of vitamin D has a negative impact on leptin – the hormone which tells us if we have had enough food. It is also recommended to eat salmon, rich in vitamin D. There are plenty of supplements in the market as well.
A what does work for me? I believe in a good nutritional diet, proper sleep and enough movement during the day. It is all about a balance in our life. However with our busy schedules and stressful days, it seems unlikely to avoid supplements.
