I do really miss the sparkling colours of spring! Right now is so grey that I'm seriously starting to think that 50 shades of grey could have been written in Denmark:) The most important thing to do with this weather is to EAT FRUIT against depression. In particoular bananas, kiwy, cranberry and black courrant, which have an high percentage of vitamins B and Group E, anti depressive substances (folic acid, selenium, triptophan) that enable the production of seratonine (the pleausure hormon). Then I will personally suggest some chocolate, that is always a good choice when it comes to winter depression, expecially dark chocolate :). Do you wanna know why chocolate is so important?? Well, fist of all it contains Tryptophan, which is an amino-acid that breaks down into seratonin and melatonin, both anti-stress hormones. In particoular melatonin helps you to relax and fall asleep, an sleep deeply in stressful situation is essential. Second of all chocolate increases Dopamine, which increases brain power and it stabilizes the mood. Then it also increases Endorphinis which also helps to reduce stress and to achieve a natural state of wellness. More importantly chocolate is rich in vitamin B, iron and magnesium which help to improve your state of happiness.
Finally, wear something sparkling red, this color reveals physical courage, strength, warmth, energy, basic survival, 'fight or flight', excitement.
The last ingredient of the anti-depression diet are FRIENDS! Hang out with them every minute you have free and everythig will apper cozier and happier :)
