Healthy Eating- It Isn’t All About Physical Benefits

BY Happy Me Feeling Good
We are all well aware of the importance of eating healthily. Without the right diet, living the life we all want, keeping the energy levels high and being able to do the things we enjoy, is difficult. Yet the physical benefits of a balanced diet aren't all that. Eating the right stuff can also have a beneficial effect on your mental well-being.
The truth is there is interconnectedness between mental health and physical health. If you eat too little, or too much of the wrong thing, then you will suffer both physically and psychologically for it. Your brain requires nourishment just as much as your body, and a lack of protein in your diet can lead to depression beginning or worsening.
If you are suffering from depression, then one of the disease 's main negative effects is a lack of energy, a situation that affects your ability to fight the condition. It's important to eat the right things, and while sufferers with depression often feel they don't want to eat at all, it's important that they make the effort. Rather than eating "comfort food"-rarely very comfortable – getting some fresh fruit and veg, as well as carbohydrates from pasta or potatoes can help. 

Drinking plenty of fluid is vital for mental well-being, too. Ideally, five or more glasses of water a day will protect you from being dehydrated and depriving the body and mind of the very essential oxygen. It is essential to have the energy and sharpness to send the symptoms of depression packing and your diet will play a major part in that.
