Eating a Healthy Died Can Improve Your Mood And Sense Of Wellbeing

Share Meals And Cooking

Preparing your own food might feel daunting, but cooking with others can be a lot of fun.

Ask your family, friends, colleagues, and other social groups to join in – they might be very happy to plan, cook and eat a meal together with you.

Plan Ahead

If you have times when you’re feeling well and enjoying preparing food, try making some extra meals to store. You could make enough to last for several days, and freeze them in portions to use at times when you can’t face cooking.

Investigate Intolerances

Intolerances to particular foods (such as wheat, dairy or yeast) can cause lots of unpleasant feelings, both physical and mental. Ask a health professional to help you investigate your tolerances safely.

Keep a Food Diary

Write down what you eat and make notes about how you’re feeling.

Over time you might work out how particular foods:

  • make you feel worse, or better
  • keep you awake or help you sleep

Plus it can be reassuring to track improvements in your wellbeing.
