  • Eat mainly unprocessed food and avoid preservatives and colourants.

3.      Nutritional Supplements

Multi-vitamins and minerals; choose a product with the optimal amount of each nutrient rather than one which covers the bare necessities.

Protein and amino acids; Amino acids are the building blocks of every cell in your body, lacking in any of them can cause imbalances.

4.       Exercise

Studies have shown that as little as 30 minutes of exercise three times a week can help to relieve depression due to increased levels of serotonin and endorphins.

5.       Laugh

There is no doubt that laughing elevates the mood. Watch funny movies, spend time with children, play games, discover what makes you laugh and use it! Enjoy the positive effects of laughter.

6.       Spend Time In Nature

Being in nature acts as a natural depression cure because increased exposure to sunlight increasing Vitamin D and serotonin production, both positively affecting your mood. Go to the beach, visit a waterfall, enjoy a hike, have a picnic.

7.       Touch

Touch has been shown to be useful in treating depression. Give those around you hugs, go for massages and other touch therapies as often as possible.

8.       Sleep

Sleep is a time for your body to regenerate and bring things back to balance. Lack of sleep decreases the body's ability to regenerate, increases stress hormones and can lead to long term dysfunctions.

9.       Reduce Stress

Recognize signs of stress, pause and breathe. Take time for yourself, have a bath, read a book, spend time in nature, enjoy a treatment, do yoga, and learn to just be.

10.   Maintain Relationships

Don't underestimate the importance of family and friends when you are dealing with depression. A good support structure, a shoulder to lean on, the feeling of being loved and needed all help with alleviating and preventing depression.

Wellness Tip
Juice Serving
Did you know that a serving of juice is just 4-6 ounces? This amount of 100% fruit juice is generally equivalent to a piece of fresh fruit. While juices are high in vitamins and minerals, large portions contribute a lot of calories to your diet. Most people need 2-5 servings of fruit and/or 100% juice per day. Drink water, not juice, to quench your thirst. Eating whole pieces of fruit adds additional fiber to your diet.

Chicken Quesadillas with Guacamole
Category: Chicken
Description: This is a popular dish because of everything you can taste - the marinated chicken, a little bit of cheese, salsa, garlic, onions, cilantro, and guacamole, all wrapped in a warm corn tortilla. It would save you some time to prepare the salsa ahead of time if you are making it fresh, but be sure to make the guacamole fresh, just before you are ready to serve.
