Little known fact: March is National Nutrition Month
One great aspect of digital media is that we have access to various types of information at a moment’s notice. Typically, we research foods that help our physical health, but there are also foods that stimulate your mental well-being. I’ve included a few of the foods that may keep you at peace during a long workday:
According to studies, incorporating salmon and sardines into your balanced diet can improve mental health. These delectable eats have even been proven to reduce symptoms of schizophrenia, depression and ADHD. Presumably, the impact is due to a prevalence of omega-3s.
2. Whole Grains
Whole-wheat cereal, wild rice and oats makes for a good fuel source for the brain and nerves in our bodies.
3. Lean protein
What items contain protein? Oftentimes, these can be digested by consuming turkey, chicken, eggs and beans. Protein aids mental health by producing the neurotransmitter serotonin. This reduces the symptoms of anxiety and depression.
Broccoli and spinach contain selenium, which is a mineral that strengthens the immune system. These items basically act as a B vitamin would in your body – reducing a lack of folate and serotonin.
