How to tame your sweet tooth
Boost your happiness levels
Eating carbohydrates triggers the release of happy hormone serotonin in the brain, which is why we often crave sweet treats when we are feeling down or in need of comfort. To boost your serotonin levels naturally, try using mood-boosting essential oils such as neroli and lemon or spending time in the sunshine. Alternatively, call a friend, give someone a cuddle or spend some time doing an activity that makes you happy.
