Psychological benefits of good nutrition 

Eating well is necessary and critical not only for your physical health, but your metal health and overall well-being. 


Examples and Findings:
Sugar and processed foods can lead to inflammation throughout the body and brain, which may contribute to mood disorders, including anxiety and depression. When we’re feeling stressed or depressed, it’s often processed foods we reach for in search of a quick pick-me-up. During busy or difficult periods, a cup of coffee stands in for a complete breakfast and fresh fruits and vegetables are replaced with high-fat, high-calorie fast food. When feeling down, a pint of ice cream becomes dinner (or you skip dinner altogether).

It’s certainly not news that exercise is good for your physical health, and has long been extolled for mental health as well. But researchers are now making progress in understanding how, exactly, exercise may work its mental magic.


Exercise, they are learning, has profound effects on brain structure itself, and especially in regions most affected by depression and schizophrenia. It also provides other, more subtle benefits such as focus, a sense of accomplishment and sometimes social stimulation, all of which are therapeutic in their own right. And while more is generally better, even modest levels of physical activity, such as a daily walk have been noted to have a tremendous and positive impact on an individual’s mental health.

In the past two decades, yoga has moved from relative anonymity in the West to a well-recognized practice offered in thousands of studios, community centers, gyms, and health clubs. Even if yoga only enhanced physical fitness, the time spent in practice would be fully justified, yet yoga offers much more than just a way to exercise the body; it also helps us experience emotional well-being, relieves symptoms of depression, and creates a more harmonious connection to the self.

Stress is a feeling of being under abnormal pressure.  This pressure can come from many different areas of your day-to-day life such as financial worries, a growing family, change in work or workload, loss of a loved one, marital difficulties and more. You may certainly find that it has had a cumulative effect and impact and that coupled with societal woes and world chaos – is simply, hard to manage.
