There are some thing you can do to give yourself an advantage. Here are some simple diet tips to give you more energy and lighter mood.
Giving your body the fuel it needs to face the day can help your mood and energy levels tremendously. Whole grain breads, bananas, oatmeal and citrus fruits all have vitamins and serotonin boosters. Take a multi vitamin that has folic acid, B-complex, and chromium picolinate included.
Don't sabotage yourself by skipping meals. Eat regularly to maintain your energy levels and balance out your attitude. Happy mood foods are baked potatoes, brown rice, leafy green vegetables, chicken, eggs, salmon, herring, walnuts and soybeans as well as tofu.

You will be amazed how much sugar and refined carbs can make you crash and ruin your mood.
Sit for your meals. Take your time chewing and don't rush. Use your meal time to relax and decompress.
