I won’t tell you why eating healthy is important or even essential when it comes to achieving overall mental health. Yeah, we are not talking about the physical benefits of eating healthy. Of course, we shouldn’t lump all peoples together. For some, the food doesn’t mean anything, but usually, the more unhealthy food you eat, the more chances for having apathy and depression are. Let’s be honest here: the order in your fridge is directly connected with the order in your head.
So, if you feel that apathy or depression is sneaking on you, it’s time to resort to dirty tricks to avoid them and focus on your diet. The first thing you should stop doing (if you practice it, of course) is stopping hoovering up everything and start eating more mindfully.

Take your time to chew and notice the variety of tastes a simple tomato or banana has. The thing is when you tuck into everything, your receptors get less sensitive, you need more pungent and savory food. It’s like drugs — you always need them more to feel the same you have felt the previous time. When you clean your diet, you’ll notice how wonderful and tasty simple veggies are.
Try to cut down on alcohol. Did you know that alcohol instills the feeling of hunger? Plus, it harms your liver. So, yes, reduce on the next booze. But if you don’t drink every day, this info is not for you. A glass of wine is absolutely ok and it brings out the light, delicate taste of fish, cheese, or a salad. Pay attention to added sugars and refined grains while focusing on healthy fats, whole grains, fruits, and veggies. It may be hard at first, but if you’re strong enough to eat like this for a week, you’ll see the difference. The order in your fridge will help you keep in order your mind.
