Eating foods that give you pleasure can trigger the release of endorphins and dopamine, known as happiness hormones. These neurotransmitters play a key role in regulating mood and feelings of satisfaction. When you consume your favorite foods, especially the ones you love, it can stimulate the secretion of these hormones, which leads to feelings of happiness, comfort and satisfaction. This explains why we sometimes feel euphoric or get a mood boost after consuming something we like to eat.

A guide to boosting your mood and your food experience:

  • Step 1

    Sit down at the table and give yourself time to really experience the meal. Take your time. Try to relax and focus on the taste, texture, and smell of the food. And good company.

  • Step 2

    Try the concept of "mindful eating" - eat slowly, enjoy every bite. Allow yourself to feel the flavors of the food better.

  • Step 3

  • Step 4

    Familiarize yourself with the food, explore the food you eat, where it was grown, and how it was prepared. Deepen the significance of each bite.
