Oatmeal is another serotonin supplier. This complex carb will also help you with your mood. If you are not a big fan, try overnight oats.

Full of antioxidants, blueberries should be part of your diet. They help produce dopamine, that stress-fighting chemical. I love eating them on smoothies, yogurts, or oatmeal.

SEEDS

Leafy greens contain folate, a vitamin that helps produce the feel-good brain chemicals serotonin and dopamine. When stress levels are high, you want these chemicals to flow! Try some swiss chard sautéed with olive oil and garlic. Other greens high on folate: asparagus, broccoli, citrus fruit, brussels sprouts, and garbanzo beans.

SALMON

Salmon is a total superstar when it comes to nutrition! When we are exhausted our bodies produce cortisol, a hormone linked to extra fat, among other unfavorable responses. The omega-3 in salmon reduces anxiety and depression by combating cortisol. Salmon also contains vitamin D, which shows to help with depression.
