This time we’re briefly talking about food

the different ways mood affects your body and a few simple ways that you can implement in your daily routine to increase your dopamine and serotonin levels!

Ways that food affects your body?

Research shows that a nutritionally varied diet can help feed your good gut bacteria which can improve your overall gut health and also help lower inflammation in the body.

This is important as chronic inflammation from an unhealthy diet, such as highly processed foods, can lead to a number of health problems and even impacts your mental health!

Studies also indicate that how you eat is as important as what you’re eating, as food helps us connect with others in our community with our culture.

Often sharing a meal with a friend, family member, neighbour or work colleague while stepping away from your devices can also boost your mood and well-being!

What you eat affects your mood

As most of us have heard a Mediterranean-style diet is a significantly beneficial way to improve your mood and lower inflammation at the same time!

Mediterranean meals often include a variety of:

• fruits

• vegetables

• wholegrains

• legumes, seeds,

• nuts, olive oil, and

• herbs and spices

Ensure you and your loved ones get the right nutrients in your body each day.
