Good Health, is vital to a happy and fulfilling life. Without good health each day is a struggle and the joy in our life slowly fades. Balance is the key to maintaining our health; eating healthy foods, drinking clean water, moderate exercise, sunshine and fresh air and equally as important, managing our stress levels. We are all creatures of habit and many of us have developed habits that do not support good health. The good news is that we can all develop new habits that enable us to regain our health and well-being.
We all know that eating a well balanced healthy diet assists us to maintain a healthy weight and avoid imminent health conditions. Your diet can also have a profound effect on your mood and sense of well-being. Studies have linked eating a typical Western diet filled with red and processed meats, packaged meals, takeaway food, and sugary snacks to not only a multitude of physical health conditions and diseases but also with higher rates of depression, stress, bipolar disorder, and anxiety. Eating an unhealthy diet may even play a role in the development of mental health disorders.
Eating fresh fruits and vegetables, reducing your bad fats and sugar intake, drinking fresh clean water and spending time outside will help to improve your overall health and mood and lower your risk in developing mental health problems.
