9 ways to beat the blues

We all get a touch of the blues from time to time - and even the most positive of people can feel a little down. These handy hints could help you shake off a low mood.

1. Go nuts!

Nuts and seeds are great sources omega 3 and 6 - which helps to improve brain function. They are also magnesium-rich, meaning they improve the blood flow to the brain, which helps to keep us firing on all cylinders.

2. Lighten up!
