When I found out that the word stressed is desserts spelled backward, it made me chuckle. How many times have you felt overwhelmed during this holiday season? The next time you feel stressed, consider eating your favorite type of chocolate and see what happens. So I’m no doctor to advise you what to eat when you get stressed, but what I do know how to do is Google “what happens when we eat our favorite chocolate”. Dopamine is released into your brain when you eat chocolate, it can actually lower your levels of stress. This is why people often crave chocolate in stressful situations or crave it when they are in need of comfort or reassurance. So the next time you get stressed, breakup with your lovely or get laid off, eat some chocolate until your heart’s content.
