Many people would agree that food makes them happy – but did you know there’s actual science behind it? Some foods can truly boost your mood, and I wish to share a few of those with you. It’s important to note that our gut is our second brain so when we take care of it by eating a healthy diet we’ll feel a lot better overall. It’s estimated that 90% of our serotonin production is in our digestive tract so let’s get to feeling happy.

How To Get Rid Of Pigeons

Dark chocolate. You might have felt like chocolate made you happier, but it’s been scientifically proven as well. It’s been shown that eating dark chocolate each day lowers your levels of stress hormones and therefore makes you happier. This is not a free pass to eat endless amounts of chocolate, but a little piece won’t hurt – in fact, it might actually help!

Fruits & Veggies. All of the nutrients, vitamins and minerals that come from a lifestyle full of vegetables and fruits permits you to release neurotransmitters that make you happy. Therefore, integrating this rainbow of food into your life is great for your mood and health.

The omega 3’s that come from fatty fish such as wild salmon and lettuce provides your body with the nutrients it must feel less stressed, a lot more relaxed and happy. Another benefit of omega 3 is its strong anti inflammatory properties. If it helps you reduce pain that’s an added bonus to boost your mood.

Saffron. Perhaps you have heard of saffron before? Conducted research showed that just a small bit of saffron a day makes serotonin more available to the brain. Saffron has also been shown to help alleviate PMS symptoms.

Along with eating mood-boosting foods, you could also make an effort to work out on a regular basis for more mood boosting benefits. The endorphins that are released during exercise have a strong effect that will last the entire day and put you up for success. Another great practice to boost your mood is by maintaining a daily gratitude journal. Every day write down at least 3 things you’re thankful for and actually think deeply about them. When we are in a state of gratitude it completely transforms our perspective and mood.

Enjoy your food, make healthy decisions and you’ll be happy!

If you are battling your mood, please seek medical care from a licensed medical practitioner. These tips should not take the place of medical aid.

Purchased a Hoarder House?

Purchased a Hoarder House?

Workshop, Lost Places, Abandoned, Old

When I first saw the TV show’Hoarders’, I wondered how they found each of those houses.

After buying homes for years, I realize that hoarder homes are everywhere. Shocking!

One of the hoarder houses we purchased. Hundreds (thousands?) of dolls. They were in EVERY room on both floors with just a path to walk through. And boxes. And all of the accessories. I never walked through that house alone. Chucky?

But so many people have houses stuffed with things. Sometimes they’re forced out – this woman was transferred into a retirement community by her children. Sometimes I guess they are just done? We’ve had multiple houses where it resembles the sellers have gone out to run an errand – all of their furniture and clothes still there – dresser, kitchen and bath cabinets full – closets full – refrigerator full – private items still left lying around. Perhaps they just packed a bag and left? I guess when you are done, you’re done.

How do you, the purchaser, get rid of all of the stuff? That can end up being a massive expense.

1 house we purchased had 62 tires inside. What?!

I have tried lots of stuff to avoid hauling it all to the dump (think cost ). I’ve tried”moving” sales, selling to vendors at flea markets (“for only $X amount you can have everything”), salvation army, any donation pick-up resources, Craigslist.

One time, I had a house with a variety of bigger items left. Tons of old, worn furniture but certainly still usable. I put photos on Craigslist and said,”FREE. Come with a truck.” I left the house open and moved back by after 1pm. Nothing left but crumbs. It was fabulous.

Naturally, we also have spent $thousands in the ditch emptying houses. We ask sellers what they plan to leave (and hope they’re honest) then lower our offer by approximate costs to wash the house.

Real estate investing is interesting on so many levels. We have also kept some amazing finds left behind – I have a wonderful and beautiful piano. One seller texted after move-out that he’d left his motorcycle in the garage and the signed title on the kitchen counter. After my husband had some fun on it… we offered it for thousands. Why didn’t the owner sell it instead of leaving it for us? Who knows – I gave up thinking for the sellers years back.
