As much as the summer season might be the time to hit the beach or go for much-awaited brunches, it also has the capability to completely drain you owing to the heat waves. Needless to say, if you're travelling to work, by the time you get there your energy and mood will both be low. So, if you're wondering how you can elevate your mood while you're at work, here are a few things you could eat.
Good breakfast: Breakfast is the most important meal of the day so make sure that you don't skip it. Try to include proteins and complex carbohydrates like eggs and oats as these will give you more energy. You could also opt for almonds, milk and bananas as they can help release serotonin which is a feel-good hormone.
Mangoes: Mangoes are rich in magnesium, calcium and Vitamin B which can work well to get rid of stress while also helping you sleep better. They can also have a rather calming effect on you.
Sprouts: Sprouts contain a ton of enzymes which can help prevent that feeling of stress and tiredness. Plus they also help you feel satiated so you won't even feel like eating a lot.
Good fats: Try to munch on some good fats like nuts (almonds, walnuts and pistachios), seeds (flaxseeds) and fish (salmon and mackerel).
