Hi everyone. As promised, I am going to talk about ways you can improve your mental health. One thing you can do is to have a healthy diet.
When your mental health is suffering, you either eat a lot of unhealthy food to ease the pain or you barely eat anything at all. Both of these options are bad because unhealthy eating will cause weight gain plus other problems later on in the future such as diabetes. Not eating anything will cause you to lose an unhealthy amount of weight plus malnourishment to the body.
Here are the foods that you can eat to boost your mental health:
- Fruits. (Apples, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, bananas)
- Vegetables. (Spinach, cucumbers, carrots, lettuce, kale)
- Fish and/or salmon.
Following this diet can help boost your Omega-3, decrease your stress levels, improve your positivity, and it can help lessen your anxiety and depression. You can also take certain supplements to help improve your mental health, but there will be more information about that another time. To learn more about what eating these foods can do for you, then you can go to https://www.psycom.net/food-supplements-fight-depression-mental-health/#:~:text=The%20researchers%20narrowed%20down%20the,%2C%20fresh%20berries%2C%20and%20kiwifruit. or https://anzmh.asn.au/2018/04/19/foods-mental-health-wellness/ So when your parents told you to eat your fruits and vegetables, they knew what was best for you. So kids, make sure you eat your fruits and vegetables or else you will miss out on having a sharp mind and a healthy body! Same goes for the parents!
As someone who has experienced eating a healthy diet being a vegetarian, I can personally tell you that I notice a huge difference between following a healthy diet vs. following an unhealthy diet. Even though I’m still struggling with my mental health, eating a healthy diet has helped improve my energy, mood, and it helped improve my mind. I also take vitamins along with following a healthy diet, but I will discuss that another time. Of course, this is not the only thing that you can do to help improve your mental health. Tune in next time to find out what else you can do to improve your mental health. Until then, be safe and healthy.
