10 Ways to Look After Your Mental Health - Number 2!

EAT WELL There are strong links between what we eat and how we feel – for example, caffeine and sugar can have an immediate effect. But food can also have a long-lasting effect on your mental health. A diet that’s good for your physical health is also good for your mental health. A healthy balanced diet includes: •Lots of different types of fruit and vegetables •Wholegrain cereals or bread •Nuts and seeds •Dairy products •Oily fish •Plenty of water Eat at least 3 meals each day and drink plenty of water. Try to limit how many high-caffeine or sugary drinks you have, and avoid too much alcohol. Please Note: The advice on this page may not apply if your doctor or dietician have given you specific dietary advice, e.g. if you are a kidney patient or a diabetic.
