“Food is medicine for your mind” – A Well Mind

Nutritionist, Lisa Parkinson Roberts’ life-long struggle with bipolar leads her to share her hard-won knowledge of the effect of diet, food-induced inflammation, sleep and exercise on mental wellness.

I like to think of myself as someone who has good mental health. I have times where I don’t feel so great, but not in a way where I believe I have mental health problems or need to get professional help. This has not always been the case for me. During my teens and during most of my twenties, I had a lot of mental health issues. I don’t really want to get into it much as it’s behind me now, but I believe that this gives me the ability to temperature check my own moods. I am able to tell what I am experiencing is ‘normal’ (as in, not a mental illness, but just you’re every day down days).

So when I started reading this book, something really stuck out:

Think about this: just because you’re not suffering from heart disease, you still have to take care of your heart. The same is true for your mind.

You can work on your mental well being even if you are not at rock-bottom. Just because I already have ‘a well mind’, doesn’t mean I can’t work on my mental health.

This book is a guide to give you the tools you need to improve your mental well-being, The book takes you through how nutrition, sleep, exercise and more can have a negative and positive impact on your overall mindset and mental health and then gives you strategies to help eliminate negativing thinking, anxiety and depression.
