My Mental Wellness 101

Exercise for mental wellness and stability is a no brainer. Exercise makes you feel great, body and mind. Your brain releases the chemicals known as endorphins and serotonin when you exercise, the ‘feel good’ chemicals.

In today’s society, people eat ‘garbage’. Unhealthy fats, sugar, and processed foods is what is contributing to a lot of the diseases you see these days.

A well balanced nutritional diet helps to ensure that your body and brain get the essential nutrients it needs to function at an optimal level. Majority, if not all, of your meals should be prepared using whole foods. Focus on the outside of the super market, the fresh fruits and vegetables with a low glycemic index. Stay away from processed frozen foods or buy organic. NO white starch, or simple sugars. Think whole wheat or grain.

Still, despite are attempts to maintain a balanced diet, it is sometimes difficult to get all the vitamins and minerals we need. This is why I take a multivitamin. I also recently integrated a vitamin B complex, fish oil, GABA and L-theanine into my daily regimen to help enhance my mood, focus and promote calmness. These natural drugs have so many additional benefits, but I dont have enough room to mention them all here.

Meditation and mindfulness…. it really is an art. Two techniques I am still learning, but have already proved to create mental calmness and focus in my life.
Cuddles with my furbabies are always a daily ritual for me. Their affection is an instant pick-me-up…
