7 Tips to Stay Mentally and Physically Healthy

Balancing your physical and mental health can be challenging. We know that one can affect the other. Work stressing you out? It can lead to headaches and an upset stomach. Received a physical injury caused by overexertion or an accident? It can cause anger, frustration and even depression. So, how can we make sure we’re making smart choices throughout our day to create the foundation for a healthy life? Here are a few tips to follow.

Read food labels

Food labels list the ingredients with the greatest amounts in the product. So make sure you’re choosing wisely. Pick foods that are low in sugar, sodium and saturated and trans fats. 

Eat three meals a day

You know you’ve heard the expression, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so don’t skip it. Greek yogurt topped with berries or a protein shake is all you need. And make sure you’re eating healthy food throughout the day, including fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and fat-free and low-fat dairy products, as well as lean meats, poultry, fish, eggs, beans, and nuts. It’s all part of a balanced diet.

Learn portion control

Even though you should be eating meals throughout the day, it doesn’t mean you should be loading your plate to its excess. As a rule of thumb, your plate should consist of ¼ protein, ¼ whole grains, ½ fruits and vegetables. To help with portion control, eat until you are full. Using smaller plates can help manage what you consume.

Control overeating 

If you are sad or upset, eating an entire box of cookies will not make you feel better. Overeating can lead to depression. If it starts to get out of control, speak to a professional who can help you work through figuring out any underlying causes.

Reduce Morning Aches and Pains with the Right Mattress

Avoid sugary drinks

Not only will sugar drinks add on empty calories to your diet but its consumption is linked to a range of health problems, including depression, diabetes, and certain cancers.

Wear comfortable shoes

It may sound obvious but how many times have you sacrificed style for comfort? Over time, this can lead to foot and even back problems. Do yourself a favor and buy a pair of supportive sneakers.

Don’t be afraid to ask for help

If you are struggling with eating healthy or if you have health issues related to your diet, speak with a medical professional. They are there for help and support and can offer up the right treatment plan for you.

Remember, one small change in your life can lead you on the path to a healthier lifestyle. It just takes one step.
