Being healthy is a concept accepted by one and all with a sound mind. Here is the catch though, a sound mind is needed to set goals of proper health including diets. If the mind is not in prime shape then goals of health are not set or are nebulous, hence to be in proper physical shape mental sharpness is essential as is the choice of diet.
Proper diet allows the mind to stay alert. Adequate rest is required by the mind too, to function at optimum level. Hence sleep is a big component of a healthy mind and sleep deprivation is a big component of anxiety disorders and other mental ill health.
Proper diet is important in giving micronutrients. Components in diet like alcohol; smoking and definitely recreational addicting drugs go a long way in creating mental ill health. This trickles down in the form of neglect and later on physical symptoms leading to downgrading of health.
Drinking adequate water in diet is also required to boost up the body fluid requirements and a dehydrated mind will be confused and not function at peak. So adequate fluids in the form of water, fruit juice or beverages are essential.
Nicotine and Caffeine in diet are somewhat stimulating to the nervous system, however over dependence on nicotine and caffeine will lead to poor sleep patterns and later when there is dependence, the mental fitness will become impaired. The toxic effects of nicotine are well documented as well!
Other items in diet causing mental ill health may include oily or fatty food, which can lead to a vicious cycle of weight gain, depression and more intake of food. As overeating is a symptom in some case of depression disorder in people.
Some diet one has to avoid to stay alert will include beverages like carbonated drinks and high fat drinks like cream whipped coffee, which will provide more incentive to crave for more food as it whets the appetite.
Following the principles of healthy diet and avoiding these components of diet which cause ill mental health, will help in achieving mental fitness and by that a alert mind capable of charting a diet and exercise plan of daily life to have a fit enough body.
Essential elements in the diet for a healthy neural development includes zinc, minerals and vitamins, apart from the monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats which are important constituents of brain cells and nervous tissue. Fish and vegetable oils including Almond oil, sunflower oil as diet source of fat, will go a long way to giving the nervous tissue good nutrients in diet to work on!
Linolenic and Linoleic acid are present in sea fishes like Mackerel, salmon and cod liver oil, which are good source of these good polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats in diet.
So like a frugal mechanic incapable of investing in awesome tools yet innovative enough to eke out a decent living and getting the machines back on the road. A paucity of irresponsible habits and some good dieting habits will get the mind back in shape to put in more thoughts for a better body.
To avoid the pitfalls of overzealous dieting and unguided physical exercise, one needs to be aware of the body's needs of diet, which are quite unique for each person. By doing this the person can customise the needs of each person and put together a decent dietary method and some good physical workout to get both the mind and body in peak form.
It is a health mind that can plan out a healthy diet regime and vice versa.
From sea food to the exotic herbal tea, if one gets in the good ingredients, leaving out the bad food containing saturated fats and nicotine like ingredients, one will achieve optimum health. sea fish has polyunsaturated fatty acids good for the neurons!
