Bipolar Disorder and a Healthy Diet

Monday, May 5th, 2014

FruitsLegumes As I mentioned in my last article, May is Mental Health Month, and I will be commemorating the event by writing related blog posts all month long.

 

This year’s theme is “Mind Your Health”. We all know how interconnected mind and body are.

As a society, we are increasingly pressured, stressed, and tied to technology.  Many of us are also spending more time in drive thru lanes and less time engaging in relaxation and hobbies. We spend less time exercising and minding our everyday health just to keep up with the grind.

It would serve many of us well to examine our current health and how we can make positive changes in order to keep us in top shape.

If our body is healthy, our mind will be healthier as well.

Diet and Exercise Important for Bipolar Health

Thursday, January 17th, 2013

When was the last time you exercised or ate healthy for a whole day?

Lately I’ve been having a battle with my diet and exercise routine, but the increasing encouragement from my treatment team to supercharge my personal health plan is finally sinking in. I don’t want to add to the symptoms anymore. I want to feel better physically. I want to feel better about myself.
