Our mental wellbeing is described as mental state - This is, how we are feeling and how well we can cope with day to day life. Our mental health is dynamic, it changes from moment to moment, day to day, or week to week and so on and so forth. Whilst our mental health is needed to be dealt by a trained professional, there are many things you can DO to promote your mental wellbeing. We often fail to remember that food has a major role in the development of our mental wellbeing.
According to some sources there is a link between Diet and Mental Health. As well as its impact on short and long-term, evidence also indicate that food plays a crucial contribution role in the development, management and prevention of specific mental health problems, such as depression, schizophrenia, ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), and Alzheimer's disease. Some studies suggest that good nutrition is essential for our mental health and that a number of mental wellbeing conditions may well be influenced by dietary factors. Of course Mental wellbeing affects our physical health too.
A healthy diet can help recovery, and it should also sit alongside other treatments recommended by your doctor.

Tips to keep your skin naturally glowing, young and acne-free!
Stress and how we look go hand in hand. Most of us are all very aware of how connected the mind is to the body and vice versa. The body is the head of our mind.
Well, this is an example - if you say something foolish or silly in front of someone and your thinking is that you feel embarrassed because of this, your face is blushing or flushing. This is a simple cognition of 'I did/say something silly'; - that can cause basically every blood vessels in the skin to instantaneously open up, causing a blush or flush. This is the evidence that emotion has the impact on body's largest organ - skin. It is pretty amazing fact that the mind and body are linked.
I wanted to know how it works? Well, I searched and did my homework - according to the article on Psychology Today that a stressful event; such as losing you job can trigger a cascade of hormones, including adrenaline and cortisol, that surged through your body, speeding heartbeat and the circulation of blood, mobilising fat and sugar for fast energy, focusing attention, preparing muscles for action, and more. It generally takes sometime for the body to calm down after the stress response has been triggered.
Furthermore, a constant state of anxiety caused levels of adrenaline and cortisol to stay high in the body which considerably harm our facial skin cells because it can interfere with our blood flow patterns. Due to this interference, it can weaken our skin blood vessels, especially our facial. This process leads to ageing. If someone already has problem like acne, proriasis or eczema, stress can make these conditions worse.
