Got the Winter Blues? Here’s How to Fight Back.
Did you know that according to the World Health Organization, more than 300 million people around the world suffer from depression?
That’s almost the entire population of the United States!
But those kinds of statistics are worse than depressing… they’re tragic.
Because it doesn’t have to be that way.
If you’re feeling down or struggling with the winter blues, you don’t need to turn to drugs – or even exercise – to feel better.
Here’s what you need to know.
It turns out that the answer to the blues isn’t found in your medicine cabinet… it’s found in your refrigerator.
A recent study published in Psychosomatic Medicinecombed through data from 16 randomized controlled trials involving over 45,000 people, and the results were clear: The better your diet, the better your mood.
Even if you haven’t been diagnosed with a depressive disorder, but are just feeling down in the dumps, improving your diet played a key role in helping you feel better mentally.
But here’s what I appreciated most about these study results. They didn’t come from any one particular diet, but simply from general improvements in diet or from weight loss.
That means eating more nutrient-dense foods like fruits and vegetables, and cutting out processed junk like fast food and refined sugar, is all it takes to significantly improve your mood.
And for an added boost? Add in some exercise.
This piggybacks off another recent study showing that the more fruits and vegetable you eat, the better your mental well-being.
In fact, this particular study showed that eating just one additional serving was the equivalent of eight extra days of walking per month for just 10 minutes.
Imagine if you did both!
The fact that whole, natural foods are good for your body is nothing new. But their dramatic impact on your mental and emotional well-being is just starting to come to the forefront.
I couldn’t be happier.
Studies like these just go to show you that everything you need for good health – physical andmental – is provided by Mother Nature herself.
