Need a mood boost? Don’t wait for a trip to Paris or a winning lottery ticket to feel happier.
New research shows that small everyday habits make a big difference in your ability to cultivate a positive attitude.
Weave these daily happiness habits into your routine:
6-8 am: Start your day GREEN. Begin by taking your vitamins! Shaklee’s Natural and Organinc Vitalizer or Vital-Lea multivitamin.
Then choose your fruit to add to your Shaklee SMOOTHEE for breakfast- all in one meal- low in calories and high in nutrition!
DID YOU KNOW??
People who drink 4 or more cups of green tea a day are 44% less likely to be depressed than those who sip it less often. Its amino acid theanine may spur the release of the feel-good brain chemical serotonin. Shaklee has these wonderful convenient packets of either Green Tea or Pomegranate that you can pop into your water bottle or heat it up for those chilly days.
10:00 am: SNACK TIME- munch on a few veggies, or some fresh fruit or one of the delicious Shaklee Snack Bars and a big glass of water OR a cup of tea!
12:30 pm Detox your LUNCH. Easy and packed with protein try one of Shaklee’s MEAL- IN -A-BAR. Or you can have another Shaklee Smoothee. Or you can pack your plate with fresh fruit and veggies, in addition to fish and whole grains.
DID YOU KNOW???
WOMEN need at least 18 mgs of IRON a day, (if you’re premeopausal, 16% of women in this group ar deficient). Female soldiers who took iron supplements scored better on mood test than those on a placebo, a study found.
WOMEN who limit their fried, sugary, or processed foods to OCCASIONAL treats, have lower odds of depression, an Australian study found.
2-3 pm: Eat a Snack Bar or munch on some carrots or celery and take a power walk. Exercise endorphins are potent mood lifters. A single session (as short as 20 minutes) can boost spirits for up to 12 hours.
6-7 pm: DINNER TIME! Pump your iron at dinner, and be sure to add lots of veggies!
10 pm: Track the good stuff. Every night, write down three things that went well for you that day, no matter how minor. (In fact, 39% of people say catching up with family at night is the highlight of their day, according to a Coca-Cola Global Happiness Survey.)
Be descriptive and note the role you played in making each happy moment happen. You’ll be increasingly mindful of how much control you have over the bright spots in your life.
