We are best equipped to maximise our full potential as humans when mind, body and spirit are all functioning at optimum efficiency and working in perfect harmony with each other. Areas such as food, nutrition and exercise are therefore absolutely crucial in the fight against stress and depression, particularly in the increasingly high-pressure world we’re inhabiting today.
Food, nutrition and exercise are all crucial to our general health and wellbeing. Making the right choices of foods and drinks and taking regular exercise can protect against coronary heart disease and many common cancers as well as other diseases such as osteoporosis (brittle bones).
There is also a growing body of evidence that there is a link between what we eat and how we feel. A recent survey by the Food and Mood Project, which was backed by the mental health charity Mind, found that people who cut down on foods such as saturated fats, chocolate, alcohol, sugar and caffeine reported a beneficial effect on their mood. In spite of confusing publicity, there is wide agreement among experts on what is a healthy style of eating. However, many myths and misconceptions about healthy eating remain.
This eBook, part of the Phoenix Personal Development Series, will be an invaluable guide in helping you to make informed choices in your food selection.
