If you’re feeling a little anxious, certain foods could help curb those negative vibes. Research found that consuming omega-3 fatty acids (found in chia seeds and whole grains like rolled oats) helps reduce the effects of anxiety.

Other Tasty Picks: Cashews are high in zinc (which is linked to the reduction of anxiety) and full of mood-stabilizing vitamins and minerals like B6 and magnesium. And don’t forget blueberries! This cute little superfood packs a major punch of nutrition, from vitamin C to flavanoids to phytonutrients, that improves your cognitive function and relaxes your anxious mind.

The Bottom Line: What you eat can directly impact the way you feel physically, mentally and emotionally. So reach for the right foods and you’ll be the best version of yourself. Happy snacking! [Swirled]
