Better Nutrition, Better Life
When reaching for a snack or drink, the foremost thought running across the mind is probably something related to how the food will taste or satisfy a craving. And while eating delicious food and drinking wonderful drinks is important, another consideration should be included in decision making—how healthy the food or drinks are. What's consumed on a daily basis has an effect on the overall health of the body. Diets should be feeding the body the necessary nutrients it needs to say healthy and active, not just satisfy cravings. While this may be a challenge for some, the benefits of maintaining a healthy, balanced diet will lead to a healthy, balanced lifestyle in many areas including sleep, mood, focus, and overall heath.
Many studies have shown that those who eat a healthy diet also enjoy better sleeping patterns—deeper sleep, longer sleep, more rejuvenating sleep. The importance of good sleep on mental and physical health is not a mystery to anyone.
It is no surprise that people recognize the link between whats eaten and the feeling afterwards. Feeling depleted, hungry, and empty has a significant negative impact on moods. The ramifications often include irritability, anger, and frustration. Make sure to eat a healthy diet to enjoy a better, more balanced mood.
Everybody has sat down at home or work to focus on an important project while the stomach is crying out for food. Productivity will more than likely take a hit. When the stomach is sending hunger signals to the brain, it is very difficult to focus on tasks. Most of the attention is diverted to the reality of hunger. Fill up on healthy foods during mealtime so that attention on important work and home matters.
How to Improve Diet
People may be eating three meals and a few snacks everyday and still be malnourished. Hard to believe? It is true. Depending upon whats eaten thru out the day, the body may still be “hungry” for the nutrients, vitamins and minerals it needs to be sustained, even after meals and snacks. General guidelines for a healthy diet include:
- Plenty of fruits and vegetables
- Whole grains
- Lean meats
- Minimal consumption of processed sugars and fats
- Drinking at least 64 oz. water daily
- Taking a multivitamin
