3 Reasons to Eat Canned Tuna:
1) Weight Control: Tuna is very high in lean protein and can aid in weight loss.
2) Reduce Risk of Heart Disease: Tuna is a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids. Research uncovered that unsaturated fats improve blood vessel function, lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
3) Boost Metabolism: Tuna is an excellent source of vitamin B-3 (niacin). It also has vitamin B-1, vitamin B-6 and large amounts of folic acid, which helps prevent atherosclerosis. All B vitamins help the body convert carbohydrates into fuel, which is used to produce energy.

3) Meditate

Meditation is an ancient tradition that has been scientifically studied and proven to have a positive impact on our minds. It allows you to rest physically and mentally and will take you away from some of the challenges in your life.

4) Love Yourself

Love who you are and what you are doing, and don’t compare yourself to others. We are all wonderfully unique and have different things to offer. Focus on your strengths and laugh at your shortcomings.

Have you ever seen an unhappy dancer? Dancing requires concentration and interrupts unhappy thoughts. When you dance, your body releases endorphins, which tells your brain to lessen your experience of pain.

6) Smile

Smiling is contagious. When you smile, it makes others smile with you. Smiling releases serotonin in the brain, which gives you an instant mood lift.
