Dear Hive Cmmunity
Does the winter stress you even more? Despite the cold weather, keeping your cool is a little more difficult. There is no need to experience restless mood at this time of the year. It is already difficult enough to run a business successfully, but many entrepreneurs say that they experience more stress, especially in short winter days. Worst of all, you may find the cure to eat bad food, drink too much alcohol, or indulge in front of the TV. In fact, these are all things that make you even more stressed.
But until warm spring days come, there are many ways to help you improve your mood. Here are nine beautiful habits that will make you feel more balanced, calm and focused during the cold winter months.
1. Reduce Sugar or Take It Out of Your Life Completely
Studies have shown that eating too much sugar and junk food causes anxiety and depression. Sugar reconstructs the brain, creating trends in the serotonin level necessary for a balanced mood. How much sugar is too much? If you constantly go to cookies and "attack" ice cream after every lunch, such habits increase your stress level, causing drowsiness and feeling nervous. Instead of junk food, you should choose to eat fruit, hummus, nuts or carrots.
2. Reduce Caffeine Consumption
Every cup of coffee you drink causes a decrease in the amount of serotonin in your body for up to 10 hours. This means a lack of serotonin, which will probably continue in the evening, if you drink coffee all day long and have the last cup at noon. This not only makes you feel uncomfortable and irritable, but also keeps you from sleeping well, preventing many important elements that keep your mood in balance. Cut the coffee at noon and try drinking green tea instead. Green tea has some heart-friendly properties that are also found in coffee caffeine. Green tea also helps burn stored fat.
3. Eat More Root Vegetables
Take advantage of the carrot. Try to include carrot soup, beet salad or sweet potato in your meals. Root vegetables are excellent foods that positively affect your mood. These vegetables help increase your serotonin levels and also balance the sugar needs of the brain as they contain some sugar. It will be in your best interest to have one serving of root vegetables in your daily diet.
4. Eat Foods Rich in Omega-3 Fats
Salmon, walnuts and flax, which contain important fatty acids, are among the most useful foods you should eat to raise your serotonin levels. In addition, these foods act as a "calming" that reduces tension in the brain. When you eat two meals of alaska salmon, a handful of walnuts and a spoonful of flax oil (you can use it as a sauce in a salad), you will see that your tension decreases and your mood, focus and concentration improve
5. Rest More
The effects of tension and depression are far beyond a bad mood. This affects even your eating and sleeping habits. While trying to improve your diet, be sure to sleep well. Good sleep is essential for the production of serotonin. Unhealthy or inadequate sleep prevents the production of the nerve carrier you need, and then causes you to have wrong eating habits and a nervous and tense mood. Try to sleep for at least seven hours every day.
6. Have Breakfast
Skipping breakfast causes negative effects on your blood sugar, starvation of your brain and making unhealthy food choices for the rest of the day. This is especially true for very busy workers. As you try to do many tasks and make decisions, you strive to keep your brain fit. If you skip breakfast, you expose your brain to a 12-hour hunger. This creates a lack of attention and concentration and causes you to experience difficulties in decision making. Oatmeal with omelet with vegetables, nuts or fruit is an excellent choice for breakfast.
It has been proven by research that it is very beneficial to play sports for a balanced and happy mood. In fact, these studies suggest doing sports instead of taking antidepressants to regulate the mood. Plus, in the light of these studies, it can be easily said that doing sports before going to work increases productivity by forty percent. This should be a habit that doesn't seem bad at all to keep your weight and health under control.
8. Go to the Sun More Often
The winter months when you are deprived of sunlight are one of the factors that make you even more sad. Daylight is basic for the creation of serotonin.. For this, try to make use of the sunlight at least ten minutes every day at noon. This not only helps you take advantage of sunlight, but also gives you the opportunity to take a breath, albeit ten minutes, in a hectic day.
9. Plan Ahead
Especially, if you have negative thoughts, it will be difficult to make healthy choices in your diet or life. But planning some things in advance can make your job easier. Try to plan your next day in detail, five minutes before going to sleep at night. Pay attention to your schedule; write down what you will eat and other things that will help you. Also try to write your intentions for sports or places where you can go during a five-minute break during the day and benefit from sunlight. This plan will stimulate your brain to comply with the plan and succeed.
