Your body really matters, it has a huge impact on your mental health. That might seem an odd thing for a psychotherapist to say, but the days of treating our minds as something separate from our bodies are long gone.
This gives a clue to a powerful way to maximise emotional well-being. Look after your body! Eat a balanced, varied diet. Stay hydrated. Exercise and keep active. Get sufficient sleep. Avoid taking in things that don’t feel good, either nutritionally or emotionally.
It may be predictable advice, but really, you are more than just a disembodied consciousness. The quality of your life depends on the way you treat your body. But, it’s not always easy to take care of yourself physically, psychologically it can be tough.
