30 Ways to Put Mental Health First During these Trying Times

Many foods contain omega 3 fats.

Omega 3 Can Stave Off Depression And Anxiety

Omega 3 is a fatty acid that helps improve many aspects of physical health, and studies have even shown that it is effective at helping prevent or alleviate depression and anxiety. To help safeguard your mental health during this challenging time, eat something every day that has omega 3. 

Eggs are naturally high in omega 3, so if you want to start your day off with a natural depression fighter, make some eggs for breakfast. Many types of fish and nuts are also high in omega 3. Remember that eating foods that contain a nutrient is more effective than taking a supplement. However, if you are averse or allergic to all foods with omega 3, a high-quality supplement is better than nothing.
