The Happy Life: Natural Mood Lifting Foods, Herbs, And Music! (VIDEO)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

I’m always interested in learning about herbs or pretty much anything that can give me a happy boost, a more serene outlook, or relaxation. Iv’e tried a few herbs that have lifted my mood like no other but I’m always searching for more herbs to try. I mean really who doeson’t want a happy high or a happy life? Below I will share with you my favorite herbs for a happy boost, foods that can lift the mood, and music that is proven to make you happier! :)

It’s proven that if you smile for 30 seconds that you will get happier.

Foods That Boost The Mood

Black tea, Green tea and Milk all boost dopamine and norepinephrine.

Seeds and nuts such as sunflower, pumpkin and milk thistle also boost dopamine and norepinephrine levels as well.

Chocolate beans contain PEA and act as an antidepressant! I went to Schnucks the other day and picked up some organic cacao powder and combined it with some organic coconut oil and put a packet of truvia in my concoction and made the most delicious chocolate syrup ever.  I most definetly felt a happy boost after ingesting my yummy syrup. :)

Herbs That Boost The Mood

Camu Camu is a tropical rainforest plant whose berries have the highest known levels of natural vitamin C in the world. It helps with stress response and depression.

Ashwagandha is an Indian plant that has long been used in Ayurvedic medicine, contains powerful adaptogenic compounds that are known to relieve symptoms of anxiety and depression. I took this herb in supplement form and just ran out yesterday! :(

Saffron, although super expensive it’s a heavenly herb! This herb can not only lighten the mood but the hair as well. Bonus!

 Basil helps in relieving stress and headaches, improving concentration and lifting the mood. I’m trying this remedy right now. I went down to my kitchen pantry about twenty minutes ago and I’m drinking my usual tea to make me fired up…if you want to know my recipe I have story on it. Anyways, I added basil and I have to admit I feel pretty concentrated right now and I’m just smiling for no apparent reason. Yay! I love herbs! :)

Borage leaf juice has a stimulating effect on the glandular system that helps to overcome the “blue” feeling. Leaves and seeds help in alleviating sadness, pensiveness and melancholy.

Lemon balm is known for its anti-depressant activity and is highly recommended for the treatment of mental ailments like depression. Iv’e tried lemon balm tea and I love it! It tastes so delicious and I feel so groovy after drinking it.

Purslane, very rich in magnesium, potassium, calcium, folate and lithium, has anti-depressant properties that help to overcome depression.

Oatstraw, which is loaded with B vitamins, and the roots of angelica, burdock, dandelion, ginseng, wild yam and black cohosh.

Skullcap, which helps with concentration, relaxing, and nourishes the nervous system.

Sage is a brain tonic and even helps reduce your risk of Alzeimers!

Rosemary is a stress reliever and increases alertness. I have drank rosemary tea and used rosemary as a hair wash. Rosemary stops hair fall and what’s a better and easier way to boost the mood than smelling your own hair!

Garlic stimulates the brainand increases energy.

Ginseng is rejuvenating, restorative, boosts energy and vitality and is tonic to the brain. Antidepressant, adaptogenic, an excellent ally for anyone under physical, emotional, mental or spiritual stress. Promotes strong nerves, sound sleep, improves memory, clear thinking and enhances concentration.

St.Johns Wort is highly recognized for individuals that have moderate deppression. I personally don’t have depression but when I’m having the blues once in a while or if I just want more of a happy boost I take St.Johns Wort. I absolutly love it!

Motherwort helps with emotional health and having stable emotions. Yippy!

Last but not least…rock n’ roll boosts the mood in incredible ways! This album below makes me want to hug everyone and smile like a groovy little snail. I always have more appreciation for the people in my life after I listen to this album. <3

Skip to 17:30 for the song Mother Freedom total mood booster!

Stay Groovy, happy, and smile!

Thanks for reading. :)
