ENERGY LIFT

Struggling to keep going through the day?

Here are some healthy energy boosters… Berries – Loaded with antioxidants, berries are naturally sweet yet low in sugar and packed with fibre, to help keep energy levels high. Bananas – They contain the amino acid tryptophan as well as various nutrients, such as B6, which help convert tryptophan into the mood-boosting serotonin.

Coconut water – Coconut water is an excellent hydrating choice providing electrolytes like potassium and magnesium, plus some carbohydrate to give you a natural boost. Oats – The combination of slow-releasing carbohydrates and protein, plus energy-boosting nutrients (such as B vitamins, iron, manganese and magnesium), oats are the perfect choice for boosting energy.

DON’T FORGET EXERCISE

Lifestyle changes including exercise are just as important when it comes to improving mood. Aerobic exercise, yoga, resistance training and a combination have been reported to reduce depression symptoms. Exercise appears to increase serotonin, dopamine, brain-derived neurotrophic factor, norepinephrine and endorphins — all brain chemicals that have been associated with improved mood and mental health. So choose a form of exercise you like and enjoy the many benefits.
