Is Your Nutrition Also Supporting Your Mental Health?Jan 08, 2023
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be?"As we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence actually liberates others. "There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine…Only do what you feel called in your heart to do, and then give all of yourself to the task. We are not held back by the love we didn't receive in the past, but by the love we're not extending in the present. Choose to be brave enough to open yourself to live fully in each present moment. " -Marianne Williamson
Your mental health and self care is one of the most loving and important thing you can give to yourself and to others. There is so much emphasis out there on meditation, mindset, and reprogramming your thoughts to help alleviate things like anxiety and depression, but did you know that there are actual ways you can make sure your nutrition is also supporting your mental health? Some of the things we are going to talk about in this episode will be centered around helping alleviate anxiety, low mood, energy crashes, and the feeling of burn out by making sure that you are eating the right nutrition for blood sugar balance, the right macros to make sure you are getting enough carbohydrates for important neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine, but also making sure you are getting the right micronutrients to support your mood as well. The benefit to doing your personal blood work and getting nutrition based off of that is that we can identify any specific nutrition deficiencies that may be going on in your body that can contribute to things like anxiety, depression, low mood, energy crashes and sleep disturbances. It’s great to start out by focusing on getting the right daily caloric intake and the right macros, but if you aren’t looking deeper than that you may be missing out on some key things that can make a massive difference in your emotional and mental health and well being.
