3. WALNUTS

Nuts are very healthy for the mind and body and are high in heart-healthy unsaturated fats. Walnuts are very good in boosting the mood. Magnesium and omega-3 fatty acids found in walnuts positively impact the levels of serotonin and dopamine (mood hormones).

Clinical depression can also be prevented by balanced levels of serotonin and dopamine. Magnesium helps in regulating cortisol levels and it promotes feelings of well-being. Psychology Today has referred to it as the “Original Chill Pill” as it prevents and treats anxiety and depression.
