Let's face it, the holidays can be stressful. From battling the crowds at the mall to dealing with eccentric relatives, it's enough to make anyone feel a little bit Grinchy. But fear not, because chocolate is here to save the day! (Or at least your mood.)
Studies have shown that chocolate can actually boost your mood by increasing the production of endorphins, those lovely little chemicals in your brain that make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. So go ahead and indulge in that chocolate bar – it's practically a prescription for holiday happiness!
