  2. Spending time in the sun
  3. Walking helps calm the mind
  4. Eating almonds which increases magnesium levels
  5. Smiling and Laughing
  6. Eating Bananas

Serotonin is depleted mainly from anxiety, stress, and worry, but you are stronger than your demons.

“We never lose our demons, We only learn to live above them.”
