7. Eat a Balanced Diet
It’s also important to eat a balanced diet to balance your brain chemistry. Eat plenty of vegetables, whole fresh fruits, complex carbs, healthy fats, and whatever you do, don’t forget the protein! All those nutrients are critical to maintaining a healthy brain chemistry, as is avoiding sugar, processed foods, and excess caffeine.
Don’t forget that exercise and good quality sleep are also critical for healthy brain chemistry. No dietary change can make up for a sedentary lifestyle or a lack of shut eye. You tell me- what’s your best dietary secret to optimizing your mood and brain chemistry?
