ABOUT ME
Eating is so much more about mind than digestion. It is about what we know, how we make choices and decisions, our attitidues, problem solving and planning abilities, social influence, habits, memories, goals, motivation. And yes, also about hormones, neurotransmitters, microbiome and other wonderful things. And all of that happens before you take every bite or sip.

Lithuanian or English.

Research. High and low intensity workout affects brain differently. Low intensity workout activates brain areas which are responsible for cognition and attention, and high intensity workout activates brain areas responsible for processing emotions (also decreases brain activity in areas responsible for motor movement). Participants confirmed, that both types of workout increased positive mood and did not affect negative mood.

Research. The babies gut microbiota may define (or allow to predict) temperament later in their life. For example, having Bifidobacterium present is associated with higher positive emotions. Greater bacterial diversity in general is connected to lesser negative emotionality and fear reactivity.
