It turns out that this tool for fighting depression is easy, inexpensive and tasty. It's yogurt! According to a study in the Netherlands, reported here in the Telegraph. I read this first this this morning and had 2 yogurts this morning for breakfast and I have to admit that I feel better today than I have for the past few weeks, despite having a bad phone call with my boss this morning, so maybe it works. This is something I could totally do every day, maybe not 2, but one yogurt a day. It does have to be one with live cultures.
"A 2013 US study found that participants who consumed yogurt twice daily for a month showed lower levels of activity in the areas of the brain associated with emotion and pain, together with increased activity in areas associated with decision making."
A strawberry flavored, healthy weapon in the battle against depression? I'll take it! Seriously, this is wonderful.
