Feed your Brain Well
This is a really wonderful comprehensive article by Emily Deans, explaining why our brains need to be fuelled by Omega-3 fats, not the highly processed trans fats or saturated fats and Omega-6 fats that we tend to consume way too many of. So what has this got to do with Positive Psychology? Plenty! We're learning more and more everyday about the positive benefits of Omega-3's on improving focus, concentration and memory, decreasing anxiety and mitigating depressive symptoms. So, go get yourself some wild salmon fillets for dinner tonight. Serve your salad with an olive oil based dressing. Make it a habit to feed your brain well and you'll be rewarded with a happier brain!
