  • 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
Fiber
There are two main types of fiber, soluble and insoluble. Soluble fiber strongly attracts water during digestion. It appears to help lower blood cholesterol. Oat, beans and other legumes, Flax, prunes, apples and pears are rich in soluble fiber. Insoluble fiber mixes less easily with water. It is found in many fruits, vegetables, dried beans, wheat bran, seeds, popcorn, and whole grain products. Insoluble fiber helps keep the bowels regular and may help prevent certain types of cancers. Both types, when taken with plenty of water, aid in weight control and the regulation of blood pressure, blood sugar, and blood cholesterol.

Recipe
Healthy Pasta Sauce
Category: Vegetarian Entrees
Description: Every cook needs a good recipe for marinara sauce. This one can be prepared in less than an hour and used in many ways. It is traditionally served over pasta, but is equally delicious with polenta or rice. It also makes a wonderful sauce for grilled vegetables or baked tempeh or tofu. We don't need to remind you that tomatoes cooked with oil provide a source of lycopene, one of the carotenes linked to protection from prostate cancer.
