Changing eating habits is an essential step to achieve specified goals and take care of mental health. The way we eat has a massive influence on our mental condition. First of all, our daily menu should contain full grain products and a lot of fruit and vegetables.
We should absolutely avoid products containing simple sugars and sweets full of “empty calories”. Our daily menu should contain wholegrain products. Limiting the intake of animal proteins is also a good practice. However, in order to shift to a different, healthier lifestyle, all nutritional changes should be implemented gradually, step by step. Excessively radical changes may weaken our motivation and make us achieve the effects contrary to the ones we intend, i.e. we will be discouraged from the changes quicker than we will be able to accept them.
Another very important fundament of changing our attitude to a healthy lifestyle is daily physical activity. Not without a reason there is a popular slogan: “Movement equals health!”. Therefore, it is worth to devote 30 minutes a day to morning jogging or yoga in order to feel better. Depending on our physical condition it is worth to apply a more intensive and more advanced training. In such a way we will gain a new attitude to a healthy lifestyle and it will be easier for us to change our thinking about eating habits and daily physical activities.
