Mens sana in corpore sano - Importance of a Healthy Body for Mental Health

Mens sana in corpore sano – Importance of a Healthy Body for Mental Health

It is well-known that physical health is linked with mental health. But people in Australia and worldwide are often not aware of that. When it comes to how our physical health impacts our mental health, there are several things that you should consider.

So it is essential to have quality sleep, consistently exercise and pay attention to healthy eating. If you neglect those factors, that can lead to mental issues such as, for instance, anxiety and depression, and many other mental health problems. Therefore, we created a list of activities that might help you to maintain physical and mental health.

Sleep at least seven hours daily

According to many studies, insomnia is connected to numerous mental health issues like depression, anxiety, and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). People with less than six hours of sleep feel more depressed and anxious in comparison to those who slept for more than six hours. Besides, if you feel anxious, then you may start to suffer from insomnia and depression. Without enough sleep, your immune system will function inappropriately and you will probably put on some weight. Moreover, you can also feel symptoms such as nausea and raised heart rate. On the other hand, depression is connected to both diabetes and heart disease. These severe illnesses are very dangerous and have a high mortality rate. Therefore, it is crucial to sleep at least seven hours per day.

Exercise every day

For your physical and mental health, it is essential to make time to exercise on a daily basis. Exercise is not only great for your body but for your brain as well. Regular aerobic exercise like running or just walking helps decrease symptoms of the above-mentioned conditions by aiding in fighting off depression-inducing chemicals. Besides, aerobic exercises improve cognitive functioning and are also linked to reduced levels of anxiety symptoms and stress. Moreover, psychological stress leads to diseases like high blood pressure, ulcers, and heart failure. It is twice as likely that people with anxiety disorders later in life suffer from depression. That may be because of the rate of experienced stress.

Sometimes nutrition isn't enough

You have learned that a healthy and in-shape body leads to good mental health so far. So being physically active enhances your concentration skills, mood, energy levels, and self-image. But sometimes hormone levels, thyroid gland issues, etc. don't allow you to lose weight easily. In that case, one of the solutions may be liposuction. Therefore, if you live in Australia, opt for trustworthy liposuction in Melbourne. That decision will not only increase your self-esteem and self-image but will help you to feel overall mentally and physically better. Therefore, if it is necessary, do not hesitate. Undergo reliable liposuction methods in some of the best Melbourne clinics.

Your diet should be balanced

Research shows that consuming healthy food improves memory, boosts moods, and manages or prevents symptoms of anxiety and depression. Therefore, it is very important to limit the amount of saturated fat, processed foods, and added sugar. Instead, eat plenty of proteins from fruits and vegetables as well as lean meats. A diet that entails inadequate nutrition and junk food causes numerous digestive issues like diarrhea, acid reflux, constipation, etc.

What is the link between physical and mental health issues?

Physical and mental health problems most people see as entirely separate. However, many professionals claim that if you have one type of problem, then you’re more likely to develop another disease. The link between mental and physical health is often stress. For instance, if you have problems at school or work, or in family life – that will affect your physical health. Then, you can be prone to consuming junk food and overeating because you don't have enough strength to prepare healthy meals. That leads to the following issues: irregular sleep cycle, inconsistent energy levels, irregular motivation to do usual daily activities, irregular bladder habits, inconsistent bowel movements, etc.

All in all, if you take care of a healthy diet, good sleep, and regular exercise, that will reflect on your overall health and well-being. You won't have problems with depression, anxiety, insomnia, obesity, and other severe health conditions.
