TRY THIS: Notice if your mood is linked to how well you’re digesting your food. Mind-gut health can be improved by eating wholegrain foods, legumes (beans, peas, lentils), fruit and vegetables. Also, try live yoghurt and functional food products containing probiotics or ‘friendly’ bacteria

‘Follow your instincts or gut feelings on what may be the problem no matter what others think, and try a change. Keep trying but don’t make it a struggle and be kind to yourself. Do it gradually, in your own time.’Food and Mood Survey participant
