So last week was pretty crazy (no pun intended) but luckily this week I’m sitting on a beach chair. But I’m a mutlitasker and am still able to come at you with a Health Tip Video.
This video is a preliminary discussion about how food can affect neurotransmitters in the brain which can affect mood and mental health. I don’t want to give off the impression that food is the sole source of feeling good–there are so many ways we need to make good lives for ourselves in order to feel good. But a lot of people over look the way food can be used to make you stable and happy (outside of that delicious chocolate cake, of course).
I want to conclude by saying that if you’re lonely but you eat really well with whole food, complex carbs and nutrient rich meals, at the end of the day, you’ll still be lonely.
But if you find yourself binging because of that emotional unhappiness, know that that food CAN act as a drug and alleviate those issues but won’t fix the problem, and can actually make it worse.
But eating a good diet with a lot of greens and other color can help you feel better.
Food is SECONDARY nourishment. The people we love, the activities we take apart in, and the way we approach each day is what really feeds our lives.
And yes, I believe being “stable” also means having a little crazy in you and embracing it. We all have it; might as well let it shine!<3k
