Healthy Eating- It Isn’t All About Physical Benefits

We are all well aware of the importance of eating healthily. Without the right diet, living the life we want, keeping our energy levels high, and being able to do the things we enjoy, is difficult. But eating a balanced diet isn't only about the physical benefits. Eating the right things will also have a positive effect on our mental health.

The fact is, mental and physical wellbeing are connected. If you eat too much of the wrong foods, you will suffer both physically and psychologically for it. The brain needs nourishment almost as much as the body, and a lack of protein in your diet can lead to depression.
If you are suffering from depression you may have noticed one of the disease 's main negative effects: a lack of motivation, which reduces your ability to battle the illness. It's important to eat the right foods, and while depression sufferers sometimes say they don't want to eat at all, it's important to make the effort. Instad of eating so-called “comfort food” (which is rarely very comforting), try to consume fresh fruit and veggies, as well as complex-carbohydrates from sources such as sweet potatoes. 

Drinking enough fluid is also important for mental health. Ideally, five or more glasses of water a day will prevent you from becoming dehydrated. It is important to maintain your hydration levels in order to have the strength and sharpness to send the symptoms of depression packing, and your diet will play a major part in that.
