Do you feel you have put a lot of effort to improve your health but you still feel stressed and disconnected? This can be overwhelming and we all have been there. Despite our best efforts we often overlook the importance of maintaining a balance between body and mind in two important areas: how giving and receiving human touch and building a healthier relationship with food improves our physical and emotional wellbeing.
Mood & Food
You have heard of a feel-good hormone serotonin. Did you know that 90% of serotonin is produced in our gut? That is how closely related mood and food are, which is why our gut and digestive system play a key role in keeping our mood stable. The recent studies show mounting evidence on the importance of diverse gut bacteria and how it can improve mood and prevent depression.
However, eating the right foods is not enough if our attitude to nourishing ourselves is restrictive or negative. Our beliefs on how the food affects us has a direct impact on our metabolism. If you want to improve your mood and energy levels through your diet, you need to develop a healthy relationship to food to fully enjoy it.
The Power of Touch
The sensation of touch plays a huge role in our everyday life. From the moment we are born until our last days it fosters communication, trust and social bonds with others. Touch is much more powerful than we think. It helps reduce stress and the risk of depression, allowing us to feel connected with our inner and outside world.
Being aware of how we give and receive touch is crucial. It gives us a great opportunity to learn about ourselves and about ways how we can integrate more touch into our daily experiences. By doing that we can support our physical and emotional wellbeing.
