3 Best Ways To Instantly Improve Your Mood & Reduce Worry, Anxiety, Panic Attacks & Depression
Published on June 2, 2020
I don’t know about you, but there isn’t a day that something doesn’t seem to “go wrong”. Where I’m not putting out a fire, fixing, dealing with other people’s mistakes and so on and so forth.
Then there’s money, relationships, family, health problems and now, COVID-19. I feel like I need a vacation… but not a physical one, but a MENTAL & EMOTIONAL vacation - what about you? A way I can just unplug my brain from all the stresses, worries, anxiety and so forth.
If you feel this way too, you’re not alone.
A few months ago I did a survey to my email list and youtube channel (over 2 million people) and a whopping 83% of people said they ALSO have these “negative” feelings almost daily (for sure, weekly). There’s always something to worry about these days, right?... Heck, “tech problems” alone is driving me crazy!
And I’m sure you already know, worry and anxiety and so forth... all negatively affect your physical health as well. So, let me give 3 proven ways of almost instantly improving your mood and positive feelings, while also reducing your “negative” feelings of worry, anxiety, depression and similar “disempowering” emotions.
What’s The Cause
But before we can talk about the solutions, let me quickly give you the primary causes or “triggers” of these negative emotions.
Yup, genetics is always a factor with everything - including your mood, anxiety, etc.[1-4]
Heck, about 50% of “happiness” is actually linked to genetics! [5,6]. This is why some are just “happy-go-lucky” people even as children.
Even though you can’t change your genetics, you CAN turn “on” or “off” genes. Which is the good news.
It’s called “gene expression” ... more on that in a minute.
Genetics aside, the way you look and feel is based primarily on your HORMONES (testosterone, estrogen, cortisol, etc.).
This also includes neurotransmitters (dopamine, serotonin, etc.) And this is why women feel so many different emotions (highs and lows) because of their monthly menstrual cycle and changes in hormones.
Of course, aging is also a big factor because of the negative hormonal changes as we get older.
Again, the good news is that you CAN easily and quickly make improvements in your hormones at any age, male or female... more on that in a minute
Here’s something super cool and interesting…
The newest research in the past decade clearly shows that your gut bacteria (“gut biome”) is linked to your mood, happiness, anxiety and depression![7-9]
Medically it’s called the “gut-brain axis”.
Some call your gut the “second brain” because it controls so many of your feelings.
That “gut instinct” you have … or “women’s intuition” … or the “butterflies” in your stomach when you're excited or nervous … that’s all bacteria.
In fact, about 90% of serotonin is actually produced in your gut.
And if you didn’t already know, serotonin is a neurotransmitter… which is like a hormone... that is linked to happiness and a sense of well-being.
This is in fact, how popular antidepressants like Prozac work - through serotonin.
The cool part is that you can easily improve your mood and happiness by making a couple simple changes in your diet, that will improve your serotonin levels - naturally.
So, in order to fix the causes, we need to do 3 main things
1) Optimize hormones
2) Improve your gut bacteria
3) Maximize your neurotransmitters
And trust me, this will be very simple to do.
There are lots of things you can do to optimize your hormones, but the BEST and most important is to get better sleep.
Most people don’t sleep enough. However, almost everyone can get BETTER & DEEPER sleep, which will optimize so many of your hormones all at once.
Of course, there are lots of things you can do here and I’ll go deeper in a future article. For here are the 3 most important sleep tips I can give you.
 Go to bed before midnight and keep to the same sleep schedule to minimize the stress hormone, cortisol
 Dim the lights in your home an hour before bed (this includes electronic devices) and block the “blue” lights as well. This helps increase the sleep hormone, melatonin.
 Take natural herbs to help relax your “nerves” and get you to sleep faster and deeper; such as Valerian Root [21-25], Lemon Balm [18-20] and Passion Flower [26-27] Extract
A natural, organic supplement called ProVanax contains all 3 of these specific herbs in the correct dosages. I take 2-3 before bed nightly.
Improve Gut Bacteria
Improving your gut bacteria is actually so much easier than people think.
You want to eat foods high in probiotics, which are healthy bacteria… such as
By far the best and healthiest is Sauerkraut. The others are dairy or soy based, which aren’t good for your health. And Kombucha hasn’t been shown to be very effective.
However, if these foods aren’t something you’re going to like eating daily, then I suggest you take specific probiotics in pill form as a supplement.
Now, there are lots of probiotics in the market. The 3 best, specifically for improving your mood are [12-14]:
1. Bifidobacterium Bifidum [15-17]
2. Lactobacillus Plantarum [15-17]
3. Bifidobacterium Longum [15-17]
These are clinically proven.
The good news is there’s one supplement called ProVanax that contains over 100+ BILLION of these healthy, “mood improving”, serotonin producing bacteria in just ONE vegetarian capsule.
Finally, you want to maximize two of the most powerful neurotransmitters associated with mood, drive, anxiety and depression and that’s Serotonin and Dopamine
Exercising outside, in the sun for 30-45 minutes daily is great.
Additionally, taking 5 specific organic herbs and amino acids is a fast, easy and scientifically proven way to naturally improve these two neurotransmitters by using
• 5-HTP [28-30]
• St John’s Wort [31-34]
• L-Theanine [35-39]
• Lithium Orotate 
• GABA 
Of course, taking each of these ingredients is going to be a hassle, time consuming and very expensive.
However, the good news is that the natural supplement called ProVanax, that I mentioned earlier, contains all of these ingredients in ONE pill.
In addition to the “mood improving” probiotics I mentioned earlier.
So, it’s an “all-in-one” formula. One-And-DONE!
Summary & Conclusion
So, what have we learned today…
