A consistent mood is arguably the most important factor to having an overall high quality of life. There are many things we can do to put ourselves in good moods.

It may be quite obvious to you that caffeine can provide you with energy and focus, but what you may not have known is that this is done by increasing your dopamine receptor levels and therefore improving brain performance. Over the long term, this can have a tremendous positive impact on your mood.
