Healthy Eating Isn't Just About Your Body

We are all aware of the importance of eating a healthy diet. Without the right diet, it's hard to live the life that we all want, keep our energy levels at a high and be able to do activities we love. But it's not just about the physical benefits of a healthy diet. Believe it or not, having the right foods can have a very positive effect on your mental well-being and happiness.   

The truth is that mental health and physical health are directly interlinked. If you're eating too little or too much of the wrong thing, your mind will become lethargic and you might become short-tempered or snappy. Your brain needs nourishment just as much as your body, so a lack of protein and healthy fats in your diet might contribute to the development or worsening of depression.
When we are going through depression, one of the most adverse effects is a complete loss of motivation and energy, a state that inhibits your capacity to tackle the problem. Eating the right food is crucial, and while people with depression sometimes find like they don't want to eat at all, it's crucial like they make the effort. Rather than eating "comfort food," which is rarely comforting for us afterwards - getting some fresh fruit and veg, as well as carbohydrates from non-overly process foods like pasta or potatoes can help. Research 'healthy cheap recipes' on Google or Reddit and find the balance between healthy and delicious.    

Drinking plenty of fluid is essential for your mental health. Ideally, five or more glasses of water a day protect you from being dehydrated and depriving the body and mind of the power that is extremely vital. Water adds oxygen into our body and brain, which helps with headaches, lack of focus, tiredness or even food cravings. A balance between proper hydration, non-processed foods and consistent sleep (even it it's late), will have an immense impact on your life, guaranteed.
