Feeling Blue? It May Be Time To Change Your Diet

Study shows that a higher intake of fruits and vegetables increases happiness...quickly.

A study published in the American Journal of Public Health found that participants who increased their intake of fruits and vegetables became happier sooner than expected.

Not only did an increase in fruits and vegetables consumption cause an increase happiness, but also an increase in overall "life satisfaction and well-being."

Do the results surprise you? Most likely no, for I'm sure you remember the doctor emphasizing the importance of eating enough fruits and veggies when you were a kid.

So if it's proven that eating healthy leads to happiness, why aren't people as motivated to eat healthier? Because according to the study, people don't see the physical benefits of eating healthy as quickly. However, when it comes to feeling happier, the results of eating healthier are almost immediate.

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.
