Are you looking for happiness? Go on a diet!
Have you ever dreamed of a magical specificity that will make you feel full of happiness, a greater willingness to live, and treat unpleasant events as a transitional state, indispensable for a better sense of joy of everyday life? In addition, it will not have any side effects, it will have a positive effect not only on your well-being, but also on the health of the entire body.
We have a great news for you! There is a lot of such specifics, and they are at your fingertips. Banana, linseed, cocoa, chilli, pumpkin seeds and poppy seeds, you can buy them in every store on the corner. They do not sound magical? Believe that they can do wonders.
Nuts, especially Brazilian ones, will calm your nerves
One Brazilian nut covers the daily demand for selenium. Is it true that you do not have much to counteract excessive stress? Selenium is a very important mineral component because it affects the nervous system. A deficiency of this micronutrient can cause aggression and increase the risk of depression. You will also find it in broccoli, cabbage, mushrooms, onions and seafood. Nuts are also a great source of healthy fats and magnesium, which are key in the diet of happiness.
A chocolate cube for a chandra? Why not.
Of course, this bitter and minimum 80% cocoa. This chocolate, thanks to a large amount of magnesium, will improve the mood and maintain a good mood. Do not reach for milk with caloric additives, because this in turn contains a large dose of sugar, which only for a moment will give a feeling of bliss, and then with a rapid burst of insulin and a drop in blood glucose, it will intensify the feeling of unhappiness. Do not you like bitter? Reach for pumpkin seeds, poppy seeds, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, almonds and the aforementioned Brazil nuts, which are also the treasury of valuable magnesium.
In addition to magnesium, chocolate contains nervous stimulants, caffeine, which stimulates and adds energy, and theobromine, an alkaloid with a similar but slightly weaker effect. The most important, however, are endorphins, secreted in our body under the influence of chocolate. Endorphins relieve pain and cause a generally understood euphoria, desired by each of us. Remember, however, that endorphins begin to circulate in our body, not only after eating chocolate. Other well-liked and healthy products will also trigger this state! An interesting fact is that the most effective stimulus that evokes euphoria are exercises and falling in love)
Bananas – blissful sweetness
In addition to magnesium, potassium is also needed to soothe the nerves. Bananas are his very good (and tasty!) Source. Dried apricots, figs and all herbs are also rich in potassium. Bananas, popular especially among athletes, are also rich in tryptophan, which is one of the exogenous, and therefore not produced by our body amino acids. In addition to bananas, we also recommend lean meat, ie chicken or turkey, as a source of tryptophan. However, it should be known that for this type of meat it is recommended to add a carbohydrate product (eg, groats, rice, potatoes), thanks to which insulin will be released, which will transport our “happy” amino acid necessary for the production of serotonin to the brain. Serotonin will help us relax, improve mood and ensure a good night’s sleep thanks to a calming effect.
