MIND OVER MATTER

Wellbeing starts and ends with mental health.

Too often, mental health can take a backseat to physical health. Where a physical injury demands immediate attention and treatment, poor mental health can be forgotten or ignored. This is because the signs and symptoms are different for everyone, and even once identified, mental health treatment can be vague and subjective.

From sleep to diet and exercise, your lifestyle and workload can contribute to the state of your mental health. With a few simple changes, a healthy mind can thrive and influence a host of benefits.

The following are key strategies and lifestyle changes to support an increase in mental health, and are understood to not only boost, but maintain a strong sense of physical and mental health.

SLEEP

There’s a difference between sleep and quality sleep.

The body’s primal instincts (plus a bit of common sense) tells us that sleep has a big influence on mental health. Sleep and health are interrelated —where poor sleep can increase the risk of poor health, poor health can make it harder to sleep.

For many, a series of small lifestyle or attitude changes can support restful and quality sleep. Whatever the state of your mental health, everyone can benefit from improved sleep.

Environment

Your sleep space should be designated for just that — sleep. From noise, light and technology, the whole environment of your bedroom should encourage undisturbed and comfortable sleep.

Screen Time

Surely you knew this one was coming. It’s no secret that blue light from your phone, laptop and TV can mess with the body’s circadian rhythm and make falling asleep a nightmare. Try to avoid screens and wind down with something calming instead.

FEED THE BODY & MIND

While a balanced diet is fundamental for general health, certain foods and food groups have been found to up your mental game.

Cold water seafood

Like salmon, oysters and mussels

Omega 3 fatty acids from foods like salmon, oysters and mussels can help in preventing symptoms of depression. These fatty acid types can easily travel through brain cell membranes to effectively interact with mood-related molecules.

Whole Grains

Like brown rice, oats and quinoa

Studies have linked an increased whole grain consumption with alleviated depression and anxiety symptoms. Unfortunately, these benefits do not extend for refined whole grains like white rice and baked goods. 

Berries

Like blueberries, raspberries and strawberries

Manganese is an essential mineral that’s abundant in all berry varieties but especially in blueberries, with just half a cup delivering more than the recommended daily dose of manganese. This mineral is essential for healthy brain function and can mitigate symptoms of depression.

STRESS LESS

Effective stress management can promote a comfortable and healthy mental state.

While everyone deals with it differently, stress can often manifest into serious mental and physical health issues. Low to moderate stress levels can be beneficial in motivating us through challenging events or periods, however the body will suffer in a prolonged high-stress state.
