Eating dark chocolate (1.4 ounces to be the exact amount) every single day for two weeks span of time will reduce your stress hormones that includes cortisol, in people suffering from stress and are depressed as well. A study done at the Nestle Research Center based in Switzerland recently found this fact. Many experts believe it could be thankful for the antioxidants in chocolate. When you get indulged, be sure about it that it accounts for the 235 calories that 1.4 ounces of chocolate provides us and that really needs to burn out with a proper workout.

Fruits & Vegetables and Other Whole Foods

Another reason to stay healthy is eating whole foods. In a recent study conducted, almost 3500 men and women published in the British Journal of Psychiatry, those who reported about eating a diet that contains whole foods in the last year were less likely to report the causes of depression than those who ate a lot of desserts, processed meat dishes, junk and fried foods and high-fat dairy products. Studies proved that the antioxidants present in the fruits and vegetables and omega-3 fatty acids available in many Fish Recipes are linked with low risk of depression and anxiety. Folate, a Vitamin B that is found in beans, dark and citrus green veggies such as spinach, makes an impact on neurotransmitters that affect our moods and thoughts.

Fish

Eating fatty fish such as tuna, trout, etc. and prawns will provide you with Omega-3 fatty acids, a key nutrient to boost your mood and that our bodies actually don’t produce by its own. Omega-3s alter brain chemicals associated with our mood and thoughts – more specifically dopamine and serotonin. Low levels of serotonin are cause of depression, rage, and anger, while dopamine is a ‘reward’ chemical that our brain releases in response to pleasure experiences that we tend to have such as eating a healthy diet with your partner at your favorite restaurant.

Coconut

The scent of coconut may be blunt when you are stressed out but it rather fight or flight responses, slowing your heart rate. People who breathed in coconut fragrance in a small amount at a study held in Columbia University saw that their blood pressure recovered in a quick and effective manner after a challenging and high-pressure task was given to them. The researchers analyze that inhaling a pleasant scent of coconut boost the alertness while soothing out the stress levels.

Tea

Dull or hectic brain? Drink a cup of your favorite black, green, or milk tea and it may elicit a more alert state of your brain, according to the study in The Journal of Nutrition. Researchers predict theanine – an amino acid available in a hot cup of tea varies and may work synergistically with an amount of caffeine to improve your focus and attention while making you more alert. To reap out the best of benefits, the studies result that drinking 5-7 cups of tea reduces your stress level.
