When times are tough, we all need as much help in feeling happier as possible.

So-called ‘mood foods’ can be a great way for us to incorporate some happiness-stimulating proteins and natural chemicals into our bodies to make us feel a little perkier.

Take a look at my list of 8 Mood Foods to Feel Happier Instantly for a few ideas about how to make your miserable Monday morning a lot better.

1. Avocado

Avocado

Scientists have found that avocados are packed full with folic acid, a natural chemical which is great at metabolizing proteins and therefore increasing energy levels.

If you are in need of a ‘mood food’ to help you keep working through the day, then having some avocado for lunch could help you to keep smiling throughout the day.

2. Chilies

Chilies

If you like to add some spice into your day, chilies can help you to remain on-the-ball.

By increasing your endorphin levels, chilies are one of the foods that will really get you in the right mood – of course if you aren’t a fan of heat, make sure you only try a mild one!

3. Garlic

Garlic

Although not an office-favorite due to the associated bad breath, garlic can help to increase the blood flow around your body.

The easier it is to pump blood around your body, the less energy your heart will use which means you have more energy for enjoying the rest of your day!

Do make sure that you keep some gum handy though…

4. Goji Berries

Goji Berries

These are one of the ‘mood foods’ that are a little more obscure.

You may have some difficulty finding goji berries in your local supermarket, but they have been proven to raise testosterone levels in men and are full of anti-oxidants which will increase your general mood and wellbeing.
