Healthy Diet 
 
Food can be one of your best friends or one of your worst enemies. An article published in August 2015 in the journal Stress suggested that the amount and quality of nutrients you take in over time can impact the body’s neural circuits that control emotion, motivation, and mood. 
We list our top 10 of healthy beneficial foods that can help to boost your mood and reduce your stress levels: 
Herbal Teas 
Dark Chocolate 
Avocados 
Whole grains 
Fish 
Hot milk 
Nuts 
Citrus fruits and Strawberries 
Probiotics 
Foods that are high in Fibre 
 
Exercise 
Get those feel good endorphins released directly from exercise to help lift your mood and calm anxiety. 
 
Identify Stress 
Pinpoint what is making you feel stressed. Write down a list of triggers and try taking baby steps to help prevent them occurring. 
 
Avoid Hair Styles that pull on the hair 
Hair extensions, tight braids, and even ponytails can all pull and put strain on the hair follicle. Over the constant tension can create thinning or balding areas to the scalp. 
 
Avoid high heat styling tools 
Try to reduce the use of hair dryers, hair straighteners, and curling tongs. Intense heat can leave your hair follicle dehydrated and venerable to damage. 
 
Chemical Products 
Use mild natural shampoos. Try to avoid harsh chemical based ingredients. The aim of a shampoo is to gently cleanse your hair from excess oils and dirt. 
 
Reduce Bleaching and Chemically treating your hair 
Constant bleaching and chemically treating your hair over time will cause irrevocable damage to the hair follicles. 
 
Use a soft natural brush made with natural fibres 
Brushing your hair on a daily basis with a natural fibered brush will help to promote healthy levels of sebum (oil) in your hair. Brushing from the top through to the ends will smooth and condition your hair cuticle.
