Believe it or not, chocolate AKA “the new anti-anxiety drug” is actually good for your mental health. Eating dark chocolate that is less than 70% cacao is actually good for you. Do not forget though, that the chocolate also contains a very large content of sugar and fat, so snack smart!

The chocolate contains a chemical called anandamides which helps the brain block away negative feelings and helps concentration.

Drinking mulberry tea for individuals that suffer from anxiety disorder is a good idea to drink every weekend. Mulberry was used millions of years ago to treat anaemia, arthritis and even diabetes. The natural tea slows down your brain and makes your mind concentrate on the right things. You can put the mulberry into an iced tea with mint, and a few blackberries on top.
