    Eating the right foods can play a critical role in enhancing our mood and mind.  Important minerals, vitamins and nutrients keep the body and mind healthy and strong.

    Here are the benefits a balanced diet can provide:

    More Energy

    Our goal is to maintain our energy levels through the day, without high spikes from artificial ingredients.  Eating well-balanced meals throughout the day allow for a level-base of energy, from morning, to noon, to night.  Consuming lean protein every 3-4 hours helps prevent unnecessary snacking.  Foods that are also iron-rich, like dark leafy greens, can help boost energy and oxygen to working muscles and the brain.

    Better Sleep

    Getting a proper night’s rest is vital to fuel the brain and its ability to perform at a high level.  Poor eating habits can cause digestive issues and toxins which are released into the body, making it difficult to sleep.  Making sure you eat well-balanced meals, and at evenly spaced intervals, allows your body to prepare and relax for sleep.

    Brain Power

    Omega 3 fatty acids, found in foods such as kiwi, walnuts and avocado, help the brain’s ability to learn and improve memory.  They also help to fight off a myriad of debilitating mental disorders including depression, dementia and schizophrenia.

    By eating well-balanced meals throughout the day and avoiding highly-processed artificial ingredients, you increase your chances for a balanced mind and mood.

    I welcome you to explore the many benefits that a life coach can provide.  Working with the right coach can result in remarkable positive changes, improvements in relationships and quality of life overall. I invite you to get started with a confidential and free, no-obligation consultation.
