5 Surprisingly Effective Mood-Boosting Foods That Banished My January Blues

I have been feeling sluggish, flat and completely drained since the end of December. Hoping for a New Year pick-me-up, I tried vitamins due to the lack of sunlight and still felt no improvement. When I read an Arctic blast of cold air was approaching, I knew I needed an energy boost.

I realized my diet was the issue, especially after indulging in unhealthy foods over the holidays. My food and flavor expert recommended oranges, dark chocolate, garlic, berries, and bananas as mood-boosters. Oranges keep you hydrated and awake, dark chocolate promotes good moods, garlic reduces stress, berries are filled with antioxidants, and bananas stabilize energy levels with natural sugars and fiber. Eating these foods helped me feel happier, more energetic, and less weighed down. Many may argue it’s a placebo effect, but I genuinely felt the difference and the foods are easy to find and affordable.
