If you’re struggling with mood, anxiety, or relationship difficulties, then trying to survive on junk food, minimal sleep, and no exercise is like adding gasoline to a fire you are trying to put out.
In order for you to live your best life, we need to get the power of lifestyle on your side.
Every day there is more and more research that demonstrates the importance of lifestyle to mental health. A lifestyle that promotes good mental health includes:
- Regular movement
- Adequate sleep
- A whole food, plant-based diet
- Periods of relaxation
- Social connection
- Time in nature
- Meditation and/or mindfulness
Each one of these lifestyle factors can help boost your mood, reduce your stress and anxiety, and improve the way you relate to others.
For anyone who wants lasting change, part of the answer usually includes, “You need to change the way you live.”
If changing your lifestyle feels overwhelming or nearly impossible right now, we’ll start where you’re at and figure out the best way to proceed. Often times, even small changes can make a big difference.
