How nutrition can help your emotional health

“Let food be thy medicine,” Said Hippocrates of Kos around 2500 years ago. His ancient wisdom feels so accurate right now. The western world is suffering from an epidemic of obesity and so many diseases. What has changed over the years of his wisdom? Perhaps we have become victims of our own greed. Greed for food, money, sex and so much more. A simple yet unknown cure can be the food that you put in your mouth.

Not only food can change your body’s microbiome but also mess your hormones and that can lead to a lot of issues. Your emotional well-being is connected to the food that you eat. We now know that our brain is connected to our gut through many nerves and it is in constant communication 24/7, we now call it the second brain.

Anxiety, depression, ADHD, hyperactivity, chronic fatigue syndrome, and brain fog are only a few of the many mental conditions that people complain and the food that we eat plays a big role in that.

For thousands of years, we knew that we have to respect the earth and its living beings, the greed of big corporations and the TV commercials have let us believe that meat, fish, and dairy its a big part of the human’s diet and should be consumed daily. Fast forward not more than 100 years we see the results of this.

I am not a doctor and this only my personal opinion that we should consume more plant-based whole foods in our daily life. Real foods that we can recognize with our eyes and taste always with respect to the environment.

Through my life coaching technique, a diet is one of the first things we address, and always try to make changes to fit individuals’ needs and improve their energy, mood, and overall wellbeing. Once you start eating the foods that you were supposed to eat, your life will change drastically and effortlessly for the better. To be a better human being it is not only enough to change some bad habits but it is important to understand and educate ourselves first and see the bigger picture. Everything has to be balanced in order for you to be balanced.

With love and gratitude,

Natural ways to promote relaxation

We have been living in very busy environments the recent years. No doubt that it has an effect on our mental health often. We usually are unable to release the tension and our muscles feeling tight. If that is something you can relate to. I have some tips that worked for me personally and for others.

  1. Try some meditation or breathing exercises. Diaphragmatic breathing has shown an effect to promote relaxation and it is very easy to follow!
  2. Add Peppermint tea to your day. Peppermint leaves have smoothening effects on our digestive tract and can help promote relaxation!
  3. Reduce the amount of coffee, or just stick to the morning coffee. It is no surprise that high amounts of caffeine can have a negative impact on our nervous system. Reduce the amount of stick to a tea for a better mood and less anxiety.
  4. Avoid overeating and try to eliminate white sugar from your diet! Sugar is addictive and we tend to overeat. Also try to avoid processed carbohydrates like white flour, bread, pizzas, etc. When we overeat our body works hard to digest and has an impact on our mood.
  5. A good night’s sleep is a MUST to your overall health and wellbeing. An adequate amount of sleep between 7-9 hours shows the optimal effect on the health of individuals. People who are sleep-deprived usually are a lot more anxious and make easy mistakes. Your judgment is also impaired. So stick to your routine and look for no less than 7 hours of sleep every night.
  6. Go for a Walk! Walking in nature can drop dramatically the amount of stress in our bodies and also promotes digestion. Walk for a minimum of 20 minutes every day for optimal results.
  7. Practice gratitude in your life. It is not easy if you never did but it has an overall impact on your wellbeing! Try to look for the positives in everything that has happened in your life. Keeping a journal and writing also helps.
  8. Smile! Smiling to people and keep a positive attitude makes a huge difference to your health! Your mood will lift and you will feel completely out of anxiety!

That’s it for now! Keep the routine and you will see amazing benefits into your life.
