Our mental and physical health are inextricably linked – when we work to improve one, we reap the benefits of both.
What we consume is integral to our overall wellbeing, and Amazing Grass is your partner in plant-based nutrition, providing products that are easy to integrate into your everyday diet. Nutrition is key to managing your mental health, so getting in the right nutrients can make the difference between an ok day and an amazing one. Nutrition, hydration, exercise, sleep, self-care, and a fulfilling social life are the basis for a healthy mind & body – check out our 6 tips for mental self-care and enjoy the positive effects it will have on your physical health too!
Stay Active and Hydrated
Exercise releases endorphins in our brains, and these neurotransmitters alleviate pain and promote a general sense of wellbeing. Proper hydration keeps constipation, dizziness, confusion, and low blood pressure at bay. Try adding a Fizzy Green Tablet to your water to support on-the-go hydration while you’re active – you’ll get the added benefit of a full serving of greens & veggies!
Start Your Morning off Right
Fitting in a nutritious breakfast can help set you up for success! Check out our smoothie and breakfast recipes for ideas on how to quickly inject your first meal of the day with greens and protein to keep you fueled all day long like this Lemon Greens Smoothie.
Get a Social Boost
No matter how busy you are, friends & family will always prove to be your best stress busters. Spend time with people you love, and your mental health will thank you. If you can’t see your loved ones in person, try hosting a virtual happy hour or dinner party.
Prioritize Your Sleep Schedule
Lack of quality sleep can lead to irritability & exhaustion in the short-term, and negative health benefits long-term. Make sure your environment is conducive to sleep – a low light, quiet, and device-free room can help you snooze contentedly, making you ready to tackle your day.
Check-in with Yourself
Prioritizing self-care is important, but often forgotten in the day-to-day chaos. Set aside time to do the things that make you feel good – try taking a bath, reading a book, or getting a massage. Amid a hectic work and home schedule, taking care of yourself can help you feel less overwhelmed and more capable of tackling the challenges you face.
Make Nutrition a Priority
Plan ahead and track your intake to ensure you get the nutrition you need to support your mental and physical wellbeing. Our Plant Protein is an easy way to get delicious, plant-based protein – you can add it to smoothies or meals to make them even more nutrient-dense!
