FLORIDA CORONAVIRUS STAY AT HOME ORDER and STRESS
Many of us in Florida are now under a stay at home order due to Covid-19 and causing us stress. The Coronavirus pandemic that is affecting us all causing us stress and making us want to eat chocolate. I live in Florida and our stay at home order became effective just a few hours ago at midnight. Even my grandmother who is in her late 90’s has never seen anything like this pandemic in her lifetime. This is certainly not like anything I have ever experienced. It is the fear of the unknown that makes this difficult to handle. None of us have ever experienced this before. All I can say is Thank God for chocolate. I am a bit obsessed with chocolate but seriously chocolate has some major mood benefits.
It is certainly understandable that we are stressed considering the Florida stay at home order, Covid-19 stress, no wonder I eat chocolate! Nothing like this has ever happened to any of us. The concerns are real. The stay at home orders are real. Many parents have been forced to home school their kids when that was never in their plans. Others of us are working from home and trying to make it happen. Even more are out of jobs. The stress is real.
In an article called “Chocolate and Mood – The Connection” by Pathway Genomics, they explain how dark chocolate benefits mood.
“Chocolate as a Mood Booster: Many people find chocolate improves their mood and offers emotional comfort. Chocolate is found to promote positive feelings in a person, as it helps in the release of multiple peptides of the brain and gut. To state it simply, when chocolate dissolves and digests in the stomach, it makes one feel good.”
Stress of the stay at home order
Now you can see why I have been grabbing chocolate during the day. It really does help improve my mood. And with everything going on with Covid-19 and the stay at home order, it makes sense to eat some of this delicious chocolate.
We normally recommend you eat at least 3-4 pieces a day spaced out for the best benefit. Also a good choice for kids now forced to home school. No wonder so many of us love chocolate.
