#1 - Reduce Your Exposure To Toxicity


Toxic people, toxic products, and toxic food all have the power to influence our mood.


Toxic People

It is important to surround yourself with positive people who support you, don't gossip, want the best for you, and are healthy to be around. Spending time with toxic people can take a major toll on your mood and overall health. Creating boundaries with people is essential to a healthy mood and life.


Toxic Products

The ingredients in our everyday products can accumulate in the body (toxic load) and have a negative influence on our health and mood. Many beauty products on the market are endocrine disruptors and can negatively influence hormones and mood. Reduce your exposure to the best of your ability by looking for healthy and non toxic options.

Toxic Food

Regularly consuming processed foods can have a negative influence on mental health. Many times processed foods contain additives that can be detrimental to brain health and cause mood swings.


Increase healthy food to crowd out the processed foods and remember to practice balance. It is not about being perfect, instead making healthier choices when possible.



#2 - Focus On Gut Health

90% of serotonin is made in the digestive tract making a healthy gut essential for a healthy mood. Processed foods, excessive stress, toxins, and more can take a toll on gut health. Focusing on your gut is one of the best things you can do for your overall health, mood, and appearance.


"All disease begins in the gut." -Hippocrates


Working with a trained professional who can order lab testing is important. Test don't guess.



#3 - Increase Nutrient Dense Foods


Imagine the body is like a car and without the right fuel it will not run smoothly. Our bodies require nutrient-dense foods to support brain health, especially healthy fats.


Did you know the brain is composed of 60% fat? Low-fat diets can contribute to low mood. Skip the low-fat food options and instead nourish your body with healthy fats and plenty of real foods.



#4 - Keep The Promises You Make To Yourself


If we can't trust ourselves then who can we trust? Following through with the promises we make to ourselves helps to increase confidence which can help to support a more positive mood.


When we take action it signals to our brain that we are important and loved. Over time positive reinforcement can help to improve mood and create more trust in yourself.



#5 - Speak To Yourself With Loving Words


How we speak to ourselves has the power to influence how we feel. The body has no other choice but to believe what the brain tells it.


Next time you find yourself criticizing yourself take a moment and breathe in deeply. Release the negative words and replace them with five things you love about yourself. Instant mood boost!



It is important to remember every day will not be perfect but we can improve our mood over time by treating ourselves kindly. Treat yourself with extra love and care by nourishing your body with healthy foods, reducing your exposure to toxicity, and implementing self-care practices. Every amount of effort will have a positive influence on your mood and health. You are worth it.


Sending you so much love!
