Eating healthy food or eating a well balanced diet is not only good for your body but it is also good for your mind.
Sometimes you may feel tired and sluggish after a large meal of empty calories. This is because food also has a direct link with cognitive function.
Carbohydrates manipulate the mind, they manipulate the function of the brain.
Food can make you either happy and high from an unbelievable release of endorphins or it can make you depressed and wanting to bury your head in the sand.
Major depletion of carbohydrates has been shown to make people feel depressed & low whereas quick simple sugars that give you that “rush” have been proven to make people feel elated and energised.
If you find yourself taking a couple of hours to really wake up in the morning and for your body to get into sync with your mind then try switching up your breakfast.
If you feel bloated after meals, you’ll also feel slow and sluggish. This then has a direct impact on your working hours in your job, your productivity levels, the way you deal with people/family and so on.
Right there should be a good enough reason to change your diet & switch to a healthier lifestyle.
It is often overlooked the benefits that a good diet has on the mind and not only the body.
Before you begin to wonder if you need some form of prescription to combat your chronic fatigue or never ending depression, have a think about what foods you are consuming on a daily basis and contemplate the idea of a direct correlation between the two.
A health diet provides not only a healthy body but a healthy mind also.
