You are what you eat as the saying goes, and that holds especially true when it comes to our mood. Nutrients found in our food fuel our brains. They affect blood sugar fluctuations, how our brain works, and ultimately our mood.
Our planet offers us so many rich experiences, from sailing on the open sea and zip-lining through rainforests, to cozy rainy days curled up with a good book.

Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for health just like vitamins and minerals. They’re the building blocks of every cell membrane throughout the body. These fatty acids work to keep cells healthy by making them more agile and flexible. Cell membranes support how things flow in and out of our cells, and they work best when they are more flexible, allowing nutrients to flow into the cells, and waste to readily flow out.
