60 Second Mood
Do you often find yourself in what you consider a ‘bad’ mood? Are you easily aggravated, frustrated, or angry at yourself and others? Are you forgetting important things you need to do? Do your bad days seem to outnumber the good ones?
Consider this. The brain is the body’s most complex organ, and often we neglect it most of all. At only three pounds and 100 billion nerve cells, the brain directs our movements and all we do each day. Increasing research suggests that supporting brain health has long-term benefits and may also help you feel better today.
What can you do to help maintain a steady, positive mood?
• Eat a healthy diet with plenty of lean protein, fresh vegetables, and fruits.
• Limit alcohol, caffeine, and sugar.
• Get some form of exercise at least three times a week.
• Drink plenty of clean, fresh water.
• Get enough sleep, at least 7-8 hours per night.
• Don’t live online. Find your right balance with time to ‘unplug.’
