Chocolate is a serious weakness of mine. It’s a little scary how a small square of that indulgent, rich deliciousness can change my entire mood. Turns out, I’m not crazy, there’s actually a physiological reason (I KNOW, I was relieved, too!), as recent studies have found that eating dark chocolate in moderate amounts reduces cortisol and catecholamines, the hormones related to stress and anxiety.
It’s no secret that women’s hormones fluctuate as we enter different phases of our lives. But we also deal with the daily ups and downs, triggered by anything from lack of sleep to lack of chocolate. Regardless of what prompts a day of wrong turns and bad decisions, you can make these moments magical…seriously.
