Combine physical, mental health with nutrition for a great year

As physical health and mental health are connected, it is important to make these two work together with good nutrition for a great year ahead.

Frequently, conversations about wellness and nutrition cover only the physical wellness aspect. While physical wellness is affected by what we eat and how to take care of our nutritional status, the impact of food also has consequences on mental health and wellbeing.

The idea of wellness suggests a balance of physical, mental, spiritual and emotional elements of life, and turning them with positive choices we make each day. What we eat will affect your weight, increase or reduce the risk of medical conditions currently or in the future, and determine our level of energy. All these changes will affect our self-confidence, self-esteem, and consequently our mental health.

Several health problems linked to poor eating habits include obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, hyperactivity in children, migraines, constipation, and skin conditions. Doctors and nutritionists will tell you that increasing the amount of fruits and vegetables will result in reducing the chance of getting cancer, and strengthening the immune system.

There are many resources available to address nutritional needs in order to maintain or improve your physical and mental health. Some individuals may be able to review nutritional literature and then begin preparing healthier meals. Some may just need to reduce their intake of junk and fast foods in between meals. Others may require more professional assistance such as utilizing services from a nutritionist or physician. In any event, all of us can improve our mental health by addressing our nutritional needs and taking care of our bodies.
