Are you sick of having to cook the right foods for your diet?
Posted March 25, 2020 06:33:08A new study from the University of Alberta has found that healthy eating patterns can boost our mental health.
The study looked at the mental health of 1,071 people from different ethnic groups.
It looked at their attitudes towards eating and the way they thought about their health.
It found that while eating healthy and being active can help reduce mental health symptoms, the opposite was true for people who were not able to exercise.
This means that those who were in need of mental health support were more likely to avoid physical activity, which in turn made them feel sick.
Dr Sarah Jones, lead author of the study, said:”We’re all social creatures, and we all need our physical health to be a top priority.
It’s really important that we all focus on improving our physical well-being, rather than worrying about our mental wellbeing.”
Dr Jones is an associate professor in the department of public health at the University.
She said there were other factors that may have affected mental health but this study showed how the diet that we eat has a huge impact on our mental well-beings.
“It can actually be very powerful for our health.
We can all benefit from having a healthy diet and exercise routine,” she said.”
We need to change how we eat, so that we can all be as happy and healthy as possible.”
The study was funded by the Department of Health and Science, the Health Research Council and the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents and Critical Care.
